Herschel Walker Rescheduled For Jan. 29 Strikeforce Card

Let’s try this again. Sherdog is reporting that Herschel Walker has been rescheduled to fight on Strikeforce’s Jan. 29 card after he was forced to withdraw from Strikeforce “Henderson vs. Babalu” earlier this month.

Forced out of a matchup with Scott Carson earlier this month, 1982 Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker will make his return to the Strikeforce cage on Jan. 29 against an as-yet-unnamed opponent.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker made the announcement Wednesday morning on San Jose’s KNBR 680 AM, and Sherdog.com has confirmed the news with sources close to the promotion.

Strikeforce hasn’t named his opponent yet, but word is it will be Scott Carson, the same fighter he was originally scheduled to face on Dec. 4.

Fedor Emelianenko is also rumored for the card, but that is obviously dependent on whether or not M-1 reaches a new deal with Strikeforce and Showtime sometime this century.
