MMA Quick Quote: Herschel Walker can keep up with Cain Velasquez

Herschel-walker-cain-velasquez-2009-12-8-18-40-13_medium

"I don't know how he does it, but just throw the age thing out the window ... He is the best student I've ever had. Every day he comes to practice 10 to 15 minutes early. He's never late. Every day he gets better. For a normal 47-year-old, it would be a big disaster... He eats one meal a day, at night... He has salad, soup, maybe chicken soup, and bread, and he's not afraid to put butter on it. He eats no meat and no fish... And he keeps right up with Cain."

High praise coming from AKA boss Javier Mendez, speaking to Yahoo.com's Dave Meltzer, whose stable of fighters includes top guys like Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch, Mike Swick, and the aforementioned Cain Velasquez. While the legitimacy of Walker's surprising jump into MMA will surely continue to be debated, a lot of questions will finally be answered when he takes on Greg Nagy this Saturday, January 30, at Strikeforce: "Miami."
