MMA Video Classic: Herschel Walker On Why He Decided To Compete in MMA

Prior to his first fight in mixed martial arts, at the age of 47, Herschel Walker met with the media to talk at length about why he decided to try his hand at the sport, fighting for Strikeforce in January 2010.

Walker went into depth about when he learned about mixed martial arts, his background as a lifelong martial artist, how his former NFL counterparts felt about his venture, and all the steps – including a private matchmaker’s exhibition fight he had to do to get Strikeforce’s nod – he underwent in order to fight in the cage.
