Herschel Walker to began MMA career

Another celebrity/former athlete has decided to join the ranks of the MMA community.

A glaring difference with this celebrity, Herschel Walker, is that he already has a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, so his skill set and size won’t hurt him in the octagon.

12-weeks of training will prelude his entrance into the ring, but no opponents have been named even though he’s already signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce.

Will Walker end up a punchline like Jose Canseco or will he be worth the admission of a ticket? Only time will tell, but either way it’s about time the rich and famous leave fighting to those who do it for a living.

Walker’s success would be a victory for him but overall, would hurt the MMA community. If he succeeds, more idiots like Jose Canseco would be encouraged to try it out too. In turn, MMA will soon be considered a joke, a place where the washed up athletes come to start over.

The 47-year-old Herschel Walker was the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and played 12 seasons as a RB in the NFL.
