Herschel Walker & Bobby Lashley Get Opponents For Strikeforce ‘Miami’

Herschel Walker

Herschel Walker and Bobby Lashley will get a pair of opponents for Strikeforce “Miami” that are as inexperienced as they are.

MMA Weekly reports that Walker will face off against Greg Nagy whose current MMA record stands at 1-1.

Strikeforce executive Mike Afromowitz on Friday informed that the Florida State Boxing Commission has approved Greg Nagy to be Walker’s opponent in his MMA debut on Jan. 30 at Strikeforce: Miami.

UltMMA was the first to the report the match-up. Nagy has fought twice for Rage in the Cage and is 21 years younger than the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Meanwhile, Lashley is expected to fight Yohan Banks (2-1), however the FSBC has yet to approve the match-up.

As much as I think we’d all like to see Walker and Lashley fight guys we’re a little more familiar with, I think Nagy and Banks are suitable opponents given the stage they’re currently at it in their careers.
