Walker's in The News: Herschel Walker Wins MMA Debut

Yeah this one is a little late, but it's still worth showing everyone. Saturday night former NFL star Herschel Walker made his MMA debut on the Showtime Network. Walker is 47 years old and frankly looks to be in just as good of shape as he was when he retired from the NFL. On the football field Walker was one of the all time great college running backs while at the University of Georgia. Many fans missed his best year in pro football because he was in the USFL, and finally with a very bad Dallas Cowboys team. Hershel Walker also nearly made the US Olympic bobsled team.

When it was first announced Walker wanted to participate in MMA, it was thought to be nothing more than a money making gimmick. After watching his first fight, it appears that Walker is not only serious about this venture, but he is damn good at it. We could be witnessing the real life Rocky story.
