Herschel Walker and Bobby Lashley

Introduced by famed ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. as one of the world's greatest athletes, Herschel Walker backed that claim, winning his mixed martial arts debut at age 47 for Strikeforce on Saturday night at the Bank Atlantic Center in (South Florida) Sunrise.

A former collegiate and NFL great who also competed on the U.S. Olympic bobsled team in 1992, Walker defeated newcomer Greg Nagy (1-2) of Phoenix when the referee stopped the fight at 2:17 of the third round.

At 6-1, 220 pounds, Walker is in tremendous shape, especially for someone his age. He is a fifth-degree black belt with training in Tae Kwon Do, Kenpo karate and Muay Thai.


Former amateur wrestling standout and current TNA Wrestling star Bobby Lashley, who trains with American Top Team in Coconut Creek, remained undefeated by easily defeating 6-8 Wes Sims in the first round.
