Herschel Walker Possible to Fight at April Strikeforce on CBS; Event Could Air Opposite WEC 48

Fresh off his successful MMA debut on Saturday at “Strikeforce: Miami,” 47-year-old Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker is likely to fight again and could step back into the cage at Strikeforce’s April event on CBS.

Walker today told Sherdog he’d “love to fight again” and was ready for a quick turnaround to appear on the April card, while Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker and a CBS representative were also open to the possibility of Walker fighting on CBS.

The event, which is also expected to feature Fedor Emelianenko vs. Fabricio Werdum and middleweight champ Jake Shields vs. Dan Henderson, was expected to take place on April 17, but Coker told’s Josh Gross on Wednesday that an April 24 date, opposite World Extreme Cagefighting’s pay-per-view debut with WEC 48 headlined by Jose Aldo vs. Urijah Faber, was “highly possible”.
