Scott Coker on the return of Herschel Walker: "You saw all the mainstream press that Herschel was able to deliver," Coker said. "It was probably more than Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture and Tito Ortiz combined in the history of their careers. "I don't think I've ever seen that kind of media surge for any fighter in the history of MMA that Herschel Walker delivered for our Strikeforce fight." "He's is a great guy, and we'll probably have a conversation with Herschel in the next couple weeks," Coker said. "We already had a brief conversation, and he's very happy with doing it – not just fighting, but he's like, 'I can't wait to get back and start training.' He wants to start training again."

Pic taken from a bar right next to my college campus. I don't know the level of Walker's popularity elsewhere but in Georgia it reaches pretty far. Usually the UFC is the only MMA action that gets any attention on the sign.

Herschel Walker convinces both Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon to watch the fights on Saturday night: At the end of the interview, Walker had converted two MMA haters into people willing to give the sport a shot. "I'm going to watch it now," Wilbon said. "I would not have watched otherwise, but I'm checking it out now." Kornheiser added, "I'm going to watch with one eye."

Don Frye discusses his opinion on the influx of old, non-mixed martial artists into MMA recently: "I tell you what: Anybody who fights an [expletive] like James Toney or Herschel Walker or Jose Canseco or any of them other [expletives] that come into our sport at their age should be required to take them down and break as many bones as possible on them and keep them crippled for six-to-eight weeks." "I'd break both their [expletive] arms so they'd have to hire somebody to wipe their ass for the next six-to-eight weeks. It should be a requirement." This Fan Shot was promoted to the front page by Nick Thomas. HT: mmajunkie.com Strikeforce: Miami coverage
