Scott Carson says he's 'ripped' just like Herschel Walker and will prove the 'keyboard warriors' wrong

Quoteworthy:

"I’ll tell you one thing. I’m a lot better fighter than the one I’ve been reading about on the Internet. This is a huge deal for me, a tremendous opportunity, but you’d think I was nothing going off what has been written by some of these keyboard warriors, who I doubt have ever stepped in a cage.  It’s a lot easier to sit in front of a computer and talk (stuff) than it is to actually fight. I am trying to take it all in stride, but I have no idea why some people are talking so negatively without ever having seen me. They don’t know me. I’m pretty well-rounded with good standup and wrestling. They say I’m old at 40 but I don’t feel 40 and I certainly don’t look 40. I think I look 30 and I’m in great shape. I’m ripped, just like Herschel. I’m going to be more ready for Dec. 4 than I have for any other fight. I plan to shut up all the critics, each and every one of them. Let them write something factual after they’ve seen me on Dec. 4."

Although he's 40 and has fought just one time in the past nine years, Scott Carson doesn't think you should hold it against him. In a statement released today, the Strikeforce heavyweight thinks he is at least on the same level as Herschel Walker, his opponent at Strikeforce: "Henderson vs Babalu" on Dec. 4 in St. Louis. A back injury had Carson sidelined for nearly a decade and in his return back in June of this year (2010), he was knocked out by Lorenz Martin in the first round. He says he "just got caught" in that fight and it can happen to anybody. Will that scenario repeat itself on Dec. 4 against Walker? Or will Carson finally make a name for himself in the MMA world off the former Heisman Trophy-winning college football player? Have at it, Maniacs.
