No one gets pie without offering some to Jose!

If this happens, I will stop watching the promotion that makes it happen.

Why all the hate? Herschel via vicious gnp!! You know this fight is going to happen and a ton of press will come with it. Not too many will take it seriously but what does Walker have to prove? He already said he knows he isn't fighting for a title, so make this fight for charity.

Jose Canseco.

Not to mention the fact that these sideshow/freakshow fights are ridiculous/dumb/stupid/lame/need I go on?

Agreed, completely, but there's benefit for a promotion to try and draw in viewers with freaks, as is shown by the numbers their last Showtime event pulled in. UFC built a fanbase promoting freakshow fights and the freakshow aspect of mixed martial arts, and Brock Lesnar, their best draw, is the best of both worlds: both a freakshow and a legitimate champion.

I dislike the idea of Walker vs. Canseco, but as long as Strikeforce maintains some of the world's best fighters, like Fedor Emelianenko, Gegard Mousasi, Jake Shields, etc. I'll continue to watch.

I hear you on Canseco. All the more reason for Walker to pound his face in. I'm not a big fan for freak show fights, but this one wouldn't be that bad, I'd actually like to see how far Herschel could progress. Strikeforce might as well utilize Walker while they can to help get their name out to the mainstream media

Come on guys, Canseco has more home runs than Fedor.

If that doesn't put him in the Heavyweight contender conversation, then I don't know what does!

Very true.

I would also guess that Hershel has more rushing yards and career TD's than any other HW.

I say do it, kinda wanna see Jose against someone who isnt 7 ft tall, however I say this fight belongs in Dream not in strikeforce and not on live television, although it would be huge
