Jose Canseco calls out Herschel Walker

Three30 Walker MMA jmb

Jose Canseco wants a piece of Herschel Walker

“I guess I may have to show Herschel Walker who the real bad boy of the Sports Industry is,” Canseco wrote on his Twitter page. “If the powers that be are reading, I want in.”

Walker made his mixed martial arts debut Saturday, scoring a third-round TKO over Greg Nagy. The 47-year-old ex-UGA star looked to be in top shape and overwhelmed Nagy.

Canseco lost his MMA debut last March. He was knocked out in 77 seconds by 7-foot-2, 330-pound Hong Man Choi of South Korea.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Walker’s representatives have not responded to Canseco’s challenge.

Stay tuned.

Herschel Walker would beat Jose Canseco to a pulp.

Answer the challenge, Herschel. Let’s see if Jose has the guts to face you.

Choi vs. Canseco was sideshow versus sideshow. Herschel’s in this for real, not the quick payday (as evidenced by his donating his entire purse to charity). If he’s smart about it, he won’t even respond.

Ill give Canseco credit for at least fighting a tough opponent who had him outsized. Choi is no slouch… he once fought Fedor… the BADDEST man on the planet!!

Jose must be broke. That’s the only reason to explain why he would get his azz whipped for a little change

And I would bet a lot of money Jose Canseco is the only one to have ever done steroids..

Herschel is the man! Talk about two opposite ends of the spectrum. A legit legend, classy as they come. And a total douche bag whiner who’s legacy was built by sticking a needle in his A$$. Canseco is a LOSER cheesball.

Weirdo I versus Weirdo II.

I like Jose because everyone was calling him a liar until…. the truth spoke for itself.

Hershel is just a goof. Crappy pro, great college player.

if you mean over 8000 rushing yards, 4800 receiving yds, 500 catches, 82 tds, 2 pro-bowls, and 18000(12 seasons) all-purpose yds defines a crappy professional player, then i would hate to see what you’re other definitions are, and thats not counting what he did in the usfl. 5600 rushing yds in 3 yrs, including 2400 yds in 3rd year. still the best single season in professional football. add in 54 tds in those 3 yrs.

From the headline, I thought this article was about Jose snitching on Herschel using steroids…not that I would believe that. But I’d believe Herschel used before I believe that Jose can win an MMA fight. That’s 77 seconds of my life that I’ll never get back.

Right, Hetch.

World-class sprinter, Olympian, 6th-degree black belt, high-school valedictorian, most dominating college player in history. A goof.

If you hurry, you can be the first to comment on the latest post over at the Tech blog. It was posted Saturday.

I’m just saying he was only an average pro at best. Horrible receiver. Passes bounced off of him regularly. Anyone that saw him was underwhelmed.

Jose Canseco just wants this fight for the money; he knows Herschel is in better shape and will train harder. Herschel will never accept this challenge because he doesn’t want a gimmick fight. Herschel will only fight someone who takes MMA seriously.

I’m going to retract anything I said about Hershel’s mental state. I should, and do, commend him on his progress in that arena. Apologies to Hershel and family for that.

Dawgiebite, I still want Jose to beat his brains in. Even though you’ve accomplished absolutely nothing, will accomplish nothing. Except sponge off the environment, that is.

Oh please, the only fight that naco can win is with his ex wife whom he beat regularly. Walker is right to ignore juice-boy as he is just seeking a payday and another moment in front of the camera. Hershel has maintained that body since he was 18….who else can say that? If they did fight, it should be a death match so Walker could kill that POS.

You know…Herschel looked great and all in his debut. But his opponent looked out of shape…flexible but flabby but known for his jujitsu. But Herschel overpowered him with his muscle and admittedly made some good moves on the ground though obviously raw. He looked at one point to have been able to dispatch Nagy with a guillotine choke hold that undoubtedly would’ve ended the fight early but didn’t take advantage due to lack of experience.

Love Herschel and his legendary work ethic. It will be interesting to see how he handles a stronger more aggressive opponent and see how he fares.

HW was a football machine who played for years with seperated shoulders. Unquestionably tough, focused and without a doubt in tip top condition for a man of any age, I am excited to see him fight and see what this super human being can do in the ring. He loves to compete, and man what a competitor.

I agree with the concensus. HW would kick the arse of Joser C. who is a relentless windbag who might talk Herschel to death outside the ring :) . Another reality show is more up his alley!

Conseco is a joke…. let’s hope Herschel ignores him because it would be a very short fight and boring.
