A former pro footballing great, one-time Olympic bobsledder and current successful entrepreneur (in addition to his role as an MMA fighter), Strikeforce heavyweight Herschel Walker (1-0 MMA, 1-0 SF) has just about seen it all.

But with his first taste of MMA behind him and a second helping on the way in January, Walker has a few things he'd like to see happen in the fast-growing sport.

First, Walker would like to see MMA in the Olympics. Second, he'd like to see the sport's participants develop a fighters' union.

ive heard people talk crap about walker but i cant understand it. he may not be the best fighter and he may be getting old but he is an awesome person to represent the sport. hes got alot of people behind him and more power than alot of other people because of his success in multiple sports and businesses. he is nothing but good news for MMA as a growing sport.

I have to agree, once again. You would be hard pressed to find a better ambassador for the sport. Herschel Walker is a legend, and he is respected with good cause. I think the only reason people slander his MMA endeavors is because of the fact he is in Strikeforce. They are such a weak organization. They baby their big name fighters.
