No, really, the dude can fight.

How many guys start in the USFL, go to the NFL to Olympic bobsledding to MMA?

NEW YORK (AP) -- Herschel Walker is starting a new career in mixed martial arts.

The 47-year-old former NFL running back said Monday that he has signed a multi-fight contract with promoter Strikeforce. Walker will begin a 12-week training camp next month in San Jose, Calif.

The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner already holds a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

I think its awesome that Herschel is gonna fight at that age, but its pretty sad when an upcoming MMA league signs a 47 year old former football great. Just one more thing u dont see in boxing, U never see Keyshawn Johnson fightin on the undercard of a Mosley fight...... What a joke, I wonder what Fedor thinks about Strikeforce now (idiot)

I also heard Ricardo Mayorga is getting into MMA too! drunken

Did u actually watch Walker fight? I bet he'd compete with many former higher class boxers at the same age 47. Did he look awesome? No. Did he look awesome for a 47 year old rookie making his pro debut? Hell yes he did. Will he ever be a legit challenger...well, no....but let's not forget the number of mid to late 40's boxers that have (very) eroding skills and are still hanging on by fighting on various shows around the country.

Hmmm, there's this boxer who was in the movie The Hangover that's contemplating a comeback and hasn't won a notable bout in almost 15 years. I forget his name....hmm. Is there a difference between that and what Strikeforce is doing Herschel? I'm really not seeing it.

Is it a bit of a circus act? Of course. Will it help grow the mainstream audience? Heck yes it will....so I'll give Scott Coker teh credit for putting Walker on the card.
