Herschel Walker off December 4th Strikeforce

source: mmajunkie.com

Strikeforce heavyweight and former NFL great Herschel Walker (1-0 MMA, 1-0 SF) suffered a deep cut in training and has been forced to withdraw from next month's "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" event.

Strikeforce officials today confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Featuring a light heavyweight matchup between Dan Henderson and Renato "Babalu" Sobral, "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" takes place Dec. 4 and airs on Showtime.

"I feel terrible about this," Walker stated in today's official release. "I know things like this happen in all sports, but I had trained very hard and was excited to be returning to the cage again."

Walker had been expected to face one-time WEC veteran Scott Carson (4-1 MMA, 0-0 SF).

According to Strikeforce officials, a Daniel Cormier knee strike opened a "deep cut under [Walker's] left eye that required multiple stitches."

I hope Walker gets his ass kicked. I'm a Giants fan.

Yeah, but fights are only as dangerous as the guys you go up against.

I'll tell you what though I have went to all 3 Strikeforce cards in St. Louis being it's where I live, and they have all been really good cards. I mean for what Strikeforce can put together. A lot of UFC vets that still have something left.

I'm actually glad he wont be fighting. It's embarassing all the way around. Im taking an older friend of mine and when I told him Hershal Walker was fighting he looked at me like I was crazy.

 Woodley vs Zaromskis?  Not like he got injured in the Spiritwolf fight, he's probably rarin' to go again. Would be a big name win for Woodley, IMO
