Herschel Walker is one bad dude. He won the Heisman Trophy in college, was an USFL and NFL all-pro, a member of the US Olympic Bobsled Team, a fifth-degree black belt in tae kwon do and now, at 47 years old he apparently is just getting started. Walker is set to fight Greg Nagy in a STRIKEFORCE MMA bout on Jan. 30 at the Florida Panthers’ arena.
I mean if ex-athlete can do it, certainly he can do it, right? This guy was and, from some hardly independent doctor’s accounts, still is a physical freak. Who knows, Herschel could be the next Kimbo Slice like MMA phenomenon if he is any good. Certainly he’s got more skills than Slice since he is a 5th degree black belt. This might be enough to get even more eyes on the ever growing MMA sport.
No odds are posted for this fight that I could find, but we’ll keep you updated on that…well probably not, we’re not too good on following up stories here. In any case, I have to imagine that Walker is the favorite, Nagy’s overall record is just 1-1 and he is a virtual unknown in the MMA world. This has to be a setup.
First, there was chessboxing. A bit dodgy as a sport but it does have the benefit of being considered a mystery by the Wu-Tang Clan. If chessboxing is a mystery, XARM fighting must be a mystery wrapped in an enigma covered with stupid.
MMA fighting and arm wrestling together at last just like peanuts and gum. Was there any demand for this? It’s like they’re tied together and trying to guido fist pump each other to a pulp at the beginning. This must be a regular weekend on the Jersey shore. Just remove shirts. Add hair product and WKTU. Instant douchebaggery.
When the Deuce comes back, the Deuce comes back strong. None of this half-ass Mase comeback business. We’re not going to short change our reader(s) until next week at the earliest.
First on the menu, ring entrances. Forget Prince Naseem Hamed. His JV ring entrances were nothing compared to the All-Pro stylings of MMA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller. Techno. Dancing. Japanese schoolgirls. Simply put, he may have the best ring entrance ever. The announcer would probably agree.
The 28 year old “crazy monkey” hosts Bully Beatdown on MTV when he’s not fighting and “putting the eww in ju-jitsu”. The show with the slogan ”You bring us your bullies and we’ll beat ‘em up”challenges bullies to fight professional fighters. The bully has the chance to win $10,000 if he wins the fight. If he loses, the person he picked on gets the $10,000.
Not impressed? He got a lotta mo’. Mayhem claims to have been a backup dancer for New Kids on the Block when he was 11. He refers to his fans as Mayhem Monkeys and numbers the monkeys. The red stripe in his hair is known as the Strip of Doom because it “gives laser like focus when a mayhem monkey needs it”. He’s got the Deuce’s respect. If he doesn’t have yours yet, he’ll just take it.
