Herschel Walker Wants to Be in the UFC: 5 Reasons the UFC Should Ignore Him
Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Former NFL running back Herschel Walker is one of the greatest athletes ever to play American sports. His football days are now far in the past, but he began another career in 2010 when he began competing as a professional mixed martial artist, defeating Greg Nady by TKO at Strikeforce: Miami. 

At 2-0 in his new career, the 51-year-old Walker has not competed since January 2011, but has now spoken up about about his desire to fight again.

And this time, he'd like it to be in the UFC

"I would love to [fight] again," Walker told the Lavar Arrington Show with Chad Dukes. "I absolutely love MMA. I think it's an excellent sport."

Some have called for the UFC to go ahead and sign the former Heisman Trophy winner, but it is my opinion that they should steer clear of the whole situation. 

Here are five reasons why the UFC shouldn't sign Walker.
