Coker Says No To Canseco And UFC Cast-Offs

Strikeforce is definitely keeping Herschel Walker around, but thankfully, not to fight Jose Canseco.

“That’s not going to happen,” Coker said. “I know he wants to fight and he trained with Cesar Gracie, but I don’t think he’s training with Cesar anymore.”

Nice, what did that last all of a week? Anyhow, if Canseco was eying Strikeforce as an opportunity to raise funds to help pay off his $320,000 tax debt, it looks like he’ll need to look elsewhere.

Coker also noted that he’s not interested in signing any UFC cast-offs, specifically Mark Coleman and Frank Trigg. They’ll have to look elsewhere too, though for very different reasons than Canseco.
