Herschel Walker scheduled for fight Jan. 30

Quote:
The 47-year-old Heisman Trophy winner, who makes his MMA debut Jan. 30 in Sunrise, Fla., has been all over television and radio.



What makes Herschel think he has a fighting chance? Seems like a nice guy and I hate to see him get hurt. Herschel - call in sick.

Herschel is a freak of an athlete. I think he will have a chance. But damn 47 years old??? Good for him.

yea, Walker was always on the offensive. The other guy just didn't do anything. He was bleeding like crazy a minute in.

He looked like f**kin' Mr. Universe. I can't believe that dude is 47.

Do they test?
Yeah, Herschel owned that dude. I think a more experienced fighter would have taken advantage of Hercshel's sloppyness, but at 47, dudes amazing.

he looks like he only in his 30s. But yea, he wouldn't have had it so easy with a different fighter.
47....

No sh!t. He looks like he could still suit up and get 100 yards a game.
No offense to the other guy, but a decent fighter would probably have gotten him in a reverse submission.

The guy almost got Herschel in an ankle lock a la how Mir got Lesnar in their first fight. Lesnar wasn't familiar with all phases of the game at that point, you could tell.

Agreed...Walker got sloppy a few times and left himself vulnerable to an ankle lock, but his opponent wasn't highly skilled and didn't look physically strong enough to maintain it anyway.

That said, Walker looked amazing for a guy his age, and if he keeps it up, he could eventually be a pretty entertaining fighter.
