After his humiliating Dream.9 loss to Hong Man Choi, most believed/hoped that would be the end of Jose Canseco’s MMA experiment. Well fans, on the heels of Herschel Walker’s successful “Strikeforce: Miami” debut, the 45-year-old wants to give it another go…any takers?

“I guess I may have to show Herschel Walker who the real bad Boy of the Sports industry is. If the powers that be are reading, I want in,” Canseco Tweeted.

Walker posted a lopsided TKO win over Greg Nagy this weekend inside the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.  The former Heisman award winner has been a life-long fitness fanatic and certainly defied all odds when his 47-year-old arm was raised in victory.

Canseco mentions that he would like to show Walker who “the real bad Boy of the Sports industry is,” well that’s something Herschel never claimed, or even wants to be. In fact, he donated his entire Strikeforce purse to charity.

Anyways, it will be interesting to see if anyone is willing to buy what Canseco is selling (HIGHLY UNLIKELY), however a Walker vs. Canseco bout could draw a decent amount of interest, however not what MMA purists would prefer seeing.
