I think alot of guys sleep on this guy because of his age, but if he was 30 instead of 50, he would have already been signed....
    If Hershel started this when he was thirty he would be an absolute beast. I agree. Give the man a fight. Even at 50 he is a physical specimen. I am biased, b/c I admittedly like Hershel.

    When asked in February of 2010 about the possibility of Herschel Walker fighting in the UFC:

    "Hell no. You know what would happen to Herschel Walker over here? It would be the first death in MMA,"
    Mr. Dana White, ladies and gentlemen.

    Dana White won't rule out possibility of Herschel Walker fighting in the UFC - MMA Fighting
    Since the UFC acquired Strikeforce, Walker has gone unmentioned for a possible date in the octagon. Maybe that's because most figured Walker had no prayer of fighting under White, who once slammed the signing of Walker to Strikeforce as "ridiculous" and "completely disrespectful to the sport."

    Well, perhaps Walker's two forays -- both TKO wins -- converted him, because White wouldn't rule out the possibility when it was broached after the UFC 158 press conference.

    "I don't know," he said. "I'll have to talk to him."

    White noted that at his age, Walker would have to be approved by an athletic commission before competing. The former NFL and collegiate star is a well-known physical marvel, who claims to keep fit by doing thousands of pushups and sit-ups every day. Walker trained at the San Jose, Calif.-based American Kickboxing Academy for his two previous bouts.

    If Walker were to get a fight this year, he would tie Ron Van Clief as the oldest man ever to compete under the UFC banner. Van Clief was also 51 when he lost by submission to Royce Gracie at UFC 4 back in 1994.

    "I've never even thought about it, but I'm assuming he's under contract with us from the Strikeforce deal, so I don't know," White said.

    The only fight that makes any sense for Walker to me would be against Carleton Haselrig, another washed up NFL player who is still fighting at close to 50.

    LOL Randy left ZUFFA a little too early, this woulda been a nice vanity fight to end his career.
