"You know what is strange? I didn’t want to mention my age. Like I said, I have these multiple personalities so that 25 year old that is inside is doing this fighting ... I have been in mixed martial arts for 30-something years and this is a great opportunity for me to get in there and show them what I can do. I tell you I love it. I have been eating one meal a day for over twenty-something years I have been doing that. My regimen hasn’t changed that much. I feel good. I am not going to embarrass AKA. I am not going to embarrass the fighters at AKA. I won’t embarrass Strikeforce and most of all I won’t embarrass myself. When I step into the ring I will be ready to go."
Recent Strikeforce acquisition and former NFL great Herschel Walker (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) comments on his transition to mixed martial arts when he debuts for the San Jose-based promotion in January 2010. Walker, a Taekwondo black belt, maintains his athleticism will propel him to great heights -- along with the 25-year-old personality he keeps on standby to take care of his dirty work. The 47-year-old former running back certainly sounds sincere, but is he headed for disaster when he finally steps into the cage? And does anyone want to take a stab in the comments section on who his first opponent will be?
