Dana White hasn't ruled out possibility of Herschel Walker fighting in UFC

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White reveals he would have to talk to Herschel Walker first before making a final decision on whether or not to allow him to compete inside the Octagon.

Former Strikeforce heavyweight and one of the all-time gridiron greats, Herschel Walker, recently revealed that he is ready to call it quits in his short mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting career, but not before he has one fight inside the world-famous Octagon.

Sounds like a long shot, right? Well, maybe not.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White was recently asked at the UFC 158 post-fight media scrum if he would consider allowing the former NFL running back and Heisman trophy winner a chance to compete in the eight-sided cage and he didn't exactly say no.

In fact, the Las Vegas fight boss said he would talk to Walker and see what happens:

"I don't know, I'll have to talk to him. I haven't talked to him. First of all, the athletic commission would have to approve that, know what I mean? I've never even thought about it, but I'm assuming he's under contract with us from the Strikeforce deal, so, I don't know."

The 50-year old athlete is undefeated (2-0) thus far and though his competition hasn't been "world class," defeating Greg Nagy and Scott Carson, it would be interesting to see how he would fair against much stiffer tests inside the Octagon.

Or would he be completely out of his league?
