Two-time NFL All-Pro and 1982 Heisman Trophy winnerÂ Herschel Walker mauled an athletically overmatchedÂ Scott Carson in a heavyweight showcase, as he forced the stoppage 3:13 into Round 1.
Walker walked through an opening head kick from Carson, dropped him with a left hand behind the ear roughly 30 seconds into the match and went to work on the ground. The 48-year-old Wrightsville, Ga., native avoided an attempted leg lock, punched and kneed effectively from the back and even scored with a takedown. Walker brought an end to Carson’s Strikeforce debut as the Californian attempted to return to his feet near the cage. A powerful left hand crumpled him where he stood and forced the referee to intervene.
“I took a kick, and I think I got a little too excited,” Walker said. “When you’re in an MMA fight, you shouldn’t take a kick like that. One thing [AKA head trainer] Javier [Mendes] told me was to be on offense. Being a young MMA fighter, I have to control my offense in the cage.”
