Pennsylvania Athletic Commission Denies UFC Vet Donny Walker
The great state of Pa's athletic commission, and more specifically Greg Sirb, is apparently so impressed by Mark Cherico's skills that he won't approve a recent UFC veteran and experienced fighter in Donny Walker (14-9) to challenge him at PinnacleFC June 29th. Let me make sure you read that right. The commission is saying that at 4-0, Mark Cherico is so dangerous that they won't even consider letting him fight a former (And recent) UFC vet because they think he (Walker) is over matched to the point where his health is a legitimate concern.
