Bautista's MMA Debut

1ST ROUND VICTORY

10/8/2012 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_batista_article

The punches were real ... the blood was real ... and now former WWE champ Bautista has chalked up his first real win in an actual MMA fight.

Bautista stepped in the ring on Saturday night with Vince Lucero -- a veteran MMA brawler turned bona fide fat person.

Lucero threw a couple of good shots during the fight ... but in the end, Bautista was too strong for the veteran. The ref stopped the fight at 4:05 in the opening round when Bautista mounted his opponent and rained down with a flurry of undefended punches to the head.

After the fight, Bautista said he's glad he's over the first fight nerves ... and says he looks forward to getting in the ring again soon.

I wish one of these guys would take Harvey on a date and then maybe we won't have to keep reading about pro wrestlers, and this crap. There is no other reason I can think of why TMZ thinks this is news.

I guess I didn't crawl far enough out of my cave to know what the MMA is. Sounds like some kind of white trash entertainment venue.
