He is a submission specialist and gained his brown belt in four years training under Zé Marcello.[3]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Batten high level submission game was cemented as fact when he earned a second round submission against John Kavanagh who at the time was deemed 'unsumbmittable'.[4] Kavanagh expressed his thoughts on the match up in his book Win or Learn.[5]

BJJ black belt Augusto Frota failed to come out for the 4th round of their fight due to leg kick damage and exhaustion.

BJJ black belt Emmanuel Fernandez, nicknamed 'Pythagoras', whom Batten defeated with his own signature move (Triangle choke).
