Herschel Walker vs. Scott Carson on January 29th in San Jose, California

The heavyweight bout between former NFL great, Herschel Walker and his original opponent, Scott Carson is back on for the January 29th Strikeforce card in San Jose, California.

Walker was cut from a knee strike delivered to American Kickboxing Academy team mate, Daniel Cormier prior to their original fight on December 4th. He had been successful the first time in the cage back in January when he defeated Greg Nagy via third round TKO.

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.
