Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker revealed that former NFL legend turned mixed martial artist, Herschel Walker could compete on the promotions January 29th show at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California after recently suffering an injury.

Walker spoke to the LA Times, explaining the nature of his injury.

“It was a freak accident. I had just finished sparring and was getting in some grappling with Daniel [Cormier]. I went to flip him and his knee collided with my head. I felt the knee, but didn’t even know I had been cut at first.”

“I felt bad for Daniel because he felt so bad. I also feel very bad for Scott [Carson]. I know how hard it is for fighters to get a fight. Everyone wants to make some money, especially around Christmas.”

“I’ve trained all my life. The doctors don’t want me to train for three weeks, but I’m a little hard-headed. I’m trying to sneak in as much training as I can and I want to be there for the other guys. They’ve helped me so much. I want to help them with their cardio or whatever I can do.”
