Herschel Walker: ‘I would hurt’ Canseco

Herschel to Canseco: 'This is no joke.'

Herschel Walker said he “would hurt” Jose Canseco if the two ever met in a MMA bout.

“Jose wants to do this for money,” Walker said Wednesday on a Dallas radio station. “My thing is, if he wants to fight me and he thinks it’s going to be a circus, I will hurt him. This is not a joke, I will hurt him, because I don’t do things as a joke. I don’t do this as entertainment. If we go out and play a flag football game, that’s entertainment. We’re having fun. But this MMA fighting is real. You can get hurt, and he doesn’t understand it. I do this as an MMA fighter, not as a joke.”

On Monday, Canseco challenged Walker on his Twitter page, tweeting “I guess I may have to show Herschel Walker who the real bad Boy of the Sports industry is. If the powers that be are reading, I want in.”


Strikeforce, the company that promotes Walker, has said a Canseco-Walker bout is highly unlikely. But if it was to come to fruition, would you pay to Herschel Walker take on Jose Canseco?

Here are some other people we’d pay to see Herschel take on the MMA ring.

That would be short and ugly…Jose is clearly trying to pay the bills, but it would come at a steep price.

Herschel would put Canseco out of his misery for good. I might not pay to see it but I would enjoy the highlights.

Steroids have greatly impacted Canseco’s brain. He can’t be taken seriously.

I’d like to see Herschel back on the football field! He looks like he is in better shape than 90% of the ones playing now.

I would not pay to watch it. It will be over in the first round. Canseco will get a paycheck and seriously hurt.

su bo, perhaps you can become Jose “Growth Hormone’s” manager and English as a second language specialist. You appear to have wonderful command of economic wannabe envy coupled with language skills tantalizingly close to English.

Jose “Growth Hormone”, the vacuous clown is the unapologetic poster child for the worst era in American sports. Herschel Walker is a multi-talented athlete successful in football, martial arts, Olympic bob-sledding, MMA and an Olympic caliber sprinter also successful in business and public speaking. Jose doesn’t deserve to be in the same country as Herschel.

And su bo there are these new-fangled English devices you might want to try when posting; punctuation, capitalization, subject and verb tense agreement, correct word usage, grammar and proper spelling. Add to this your racism and revisionist history and your ignorance is unmatched on the AJC forums in 2010. But the year is young….

I really dislike UGA, but as martial artist I can tell you that Jose wouldn’t stand a chance. He would be doing it as a “tough man” side show. Herschel has obviously taken the sport very seriously, and has admirable skills. While he’s nowhere near the top of the sport, Herschel is a legitimate MMA fighter.

I would pay to see Herschel, one of the class acts in any sport give that slimmy Guido a good ol Georgia rear whippin. Who knows, if Herschel hits him too hard he might deflate with all of those chemical muscles he has. He is a joke.

HERSCHEL might beat Canseco in the ring ..but Canseco will take any girl from HERSCHEL thats for sure Canseco is a cutie look at him ..now look at HERSCHEL you ugly MUTT

Louie if Herschel is over rated then you aren’t even fit to be considered to be rated.

Even if it was over in 30 seconds, I’d pay to see Herschel knock his block off. After they re-played the knockout 10 times that would amount to 5 minutes of pure entertainment. Then we’d have our money’s worth.

Isn’t Hershel a jesus-freak? How is injuring someone “christ-like?” Hummmm. He sounds like another idiot tied to UGA. The list is loooooooooong.

Jose sit your ass down, there is no amount of steroids that one fool can take to beat herschel in a fight. Your brain is fried from the steroids. PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS!!!!!!

No disrespect to Herschel. He’s the toughest and most fit 47 year-old in the world but I wouldn’t pay more than $10 to see the fight. It will be shown in youtube anyways. Plus, it wouldn’t last long. Herschel would knock him out within the 5 minutes of the first round.

Herschel Walker is a MMA real deal and at 47 seems to be at his new prime but, on the other hand, Canseco is looking for media & attention for monetary gain and he should take heed that #34 will hurt him. Let’s do it for charity– not an MMA bout but rather an exhibition—-where ALL proceeds go to the winner–and winners’ choice of charity–Then I’ll pay premium for the seat. Let’s make it happen. Vote and keep this link alive.

Canseco needs another publicity stunt and Herschel does’nt need to waste his time on that. He’s a real fighter. Herschel would crush his face with a hobnail boot.
