Dana White Gives Herschel Walker Props Then Belittles Him

"I say it all the time, they are a small organization, and they are always going to be a small organization. The whole Herschel Walker thing, listen I give the guy the props…he is almost 50 years old. He is still in great shape and he went out trained in mixed martial arts and he beat a guy who had no athletic ability, no stand up and no ground. Herschel Walker is like 50 years old and it’s a cool little fun hobby. You know what makes me crazy is the media attention it got. ESPN will cover Herschel Walker fighting when you got guys like George St. Pierre, Anderson Silva, Brock Lesner, and BJ Penn. All these great athletes that have been training for years and are the best in the sport and you are talking about Herschel Walker? Then you start talking about Walker possibly fighting Jose Canseco? Oh my god, give me a break."

"Hell no. You know what would happen to Herschel Walker over here? It would be the first death in MMA."

Come on Dana, you know you couldn't put Walker in there with the likes of Carwin, Velasquez, Mir, Noguiera, or Lesnar.  Of course he would get killed since he's only fought once in his whole life.  I do have to admit that it is pretty retarded that ESPN would cover the Walker fight, but then pick and choose which UFC events they want to cover.  Then again, most ofthe kats at ESPN don't have a clue about the sports they cover....much less MMA.
