"I’m going get back into the gym and say I’d love to have another fight, and I’m gonna work hard, but I’m leaving it my trainers and coaches’ hands and the fighters at the gym. If they think I’m not ready, they gotta tell me, and I will swallow my pride and not do it. I want to know that I’m still the Herschel of -- that 47-year-old that’s got a 25-year-old way of doing things. If I have lost that, then I don’t think I’ll fight again. My thing is go out and perform at the highest of levels. I’m not there to be a circus act. I want to be a pure fighter."
Former gridiron great and 1-0 mixed martial artist Herschel Walker tells Sherdog.com that he still has the desire to compete for Strikeforce -- pending approval from his coaches and team mates at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA). Walker had a successful debut over Greg Nagy at last month's "Miami" event despite looking like a well-conditioned athlete with just three months of training -- which is exactly what he was. Any Maniacs out there want to see if he can take up Scott Coker's offer and progress into something more than just an "attraction," or should he get out after proving his point?
