While his own MMA career did not workout, Batista is set to open a new MMA gym. He will be partnering with Cesar Gracie to open up Gracie Fighter Jiu Jitsu in Tampa, Florida.

At this time the gym is only open to close friends, but will be opening to the public next week. Batista at one time was looking to sign with Strikeforce to fight, but the deal fell through.
