The greatest trick Scott Coker ever pulled was convincing the world Herschel Walker did exist. In a sport built upon freak show fights having a 48-year-old Walker fight in the Strikeforce cage was Coker’s piece de resistance.
Now 55, if Herschel Walker and Coker can get him one fight in the Bellator cage it would a promoter’s version of a walkoff home run followed by a Hail Mary pass thrown by SCott Coker then caught by Scott Coker.
Speaking on the SiriusXM’s MMA Tonight show with RJ Clifford and AJ Hawk, Walker said he has been asking for a Bellator fight. I mean after the year MMA just had, sure why not let a 1982 Heisman Trophy winner TKO a random regional MMA heavyweight next year in Bellator.
Book it Coker!
The great @HerschelWalker joins @OfficialAJHawk & @RJcliffordMMA on MMA Tonight tomorrow night between 6-8p ET … here's a preview of the convo where Herschel talks about his desire to return to fighting in @BellatorMMA & that he wishes he could have gotten in on the Grand Prix! pic.twitter.com/VY8tSbNNuo
