Herschel Walker Wins First Ever MMA Fight

SUNRISE, Fla: Herschel Walker, at age 47, claimed he was looking for a challenge and well he didn't really get one last night winning by TKO. Herschel looked great for his age and had a secret weapon: he was already a sixth degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do which many people do not know.

Sure you can say this was just a publicity stunt by the MMA a week before the Super Bowl, but for others it was a fight of rookies. Greg Nagy may just be a rookie starting coming into this match-up at now 1-2, but Walker had some 15 or 20 years on him.

The first round gave a look at Walker's fighting style, which was a very odd style of fighting. However, throughout the fight, Walker continually took Nagy to the ground. This 1982 Heisman Winner from the great state and college of Georgia seemed more like a young fighter than on old rookie looking for a fight.

Nagy tried to use speed to get back up and take over the fight, but he never did. As Walker continued to pound into the rookie Nagy the ref was wondering whether to call the game or not. It was not until two minutes and 17 seconds into the final round was it officially over.

Walker was not sure if he would return, but said that his trainers would decide for him. "I've got to come back and train," Walker said. "They've got to make that decision for me."
