Herschel Walker vs. ex-WEC vet, Scott Carson in St. Louis, Missouri

Former NFL star, Herschel Walker finally has an opponent for his second pro mixed martial arts fight after it was announced he’ll take on former WEC star, Scott Carson in St. Louis, Missouri on December 4th, 2010.

The 40-year old Carson competed in four MMA fights between 1999 and 2001, winning them all in impressive fashion. He then took a nine year break from the sport before returning earlier this year and was promptly knocked out in the first round by Lorenz Larkin.

Scott Coker, speaking to ESPN.com, said:

“The goal with Herschel’s next fight is to put him in a little more competitive environment and let him test his skills.”
