Holy crap! At age 48, Herschel Walker looks like this (PIC)
In case you’ve been asking yourself, “hey, what’s Herschel Walker up to these days?”, wonder no more.
The former Georgia, USFL & NFL great has been training for his second professional MMA fight, which is set to take place on January 29th against Scott Carson. And if there was any question as to whether or not Walker was taking his training seriously, this picture of the 48-year-old Walker at the gym yesterday should silence the doubters:
Jebus. I don’t envy this Carson guy for having to go into the cage against that. The former Heisman trophy winner has long been infamous for his insane workout regimens, which have obviously translated over to his new career. I mean, just look at the guy, and then remind yourself that he’s FORTY-EIGHT YEARS OLD!
Walker first made his pro MMA debut with Strikeforce in January of 2010, winning his first fight against an unknown named Greg Nagy with ease. Admittedly, I don’t follow the sport, but apparently Carson is a more established fighter with a 4-1 record, and should give a better indication of Walker’s MMA ability. By all accounts, it seems that Walker is very serious about earning his stripes with this fight, and becoming a long-term part of the mixed martial arts world. But he’s not delusional enough to think he can keep fighting guys 25-years his junior … there are rumors abound that this may be his last fight, and that Herschel would like to become a spokesman for the sport after he hangs up the gloves.
