Herschel Walker Vs. Scott Carson At Strikeforce: Walker Ready For Second MMA Fight

It's been a year since his first MMA fight, and Georgia Bulldogs great Herschel Walker is itching to get back in the ring to prove everyone that he is serious about this sport. His first fight was back in January 2010, when he defeated Greg Nagy via TKO. This time, Walker will go against Scott Carson Saturday night in the event Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg in San Jose.

The match was originally supposed to go down a month ago, but Walker suffered a cut during training that required seven stitches.

With this being Walker's second fight, there will be doubters because of his age. Plus there's the fact that his opponent is more experienced. But knowing Walker's work ethic and how athletic he still is at the age of 48, he will be ready to go for an intense contest.

The fight will be shown live on Showtime, part of the main card, which features three other fights.
