Video After The Jump

Proving that age really "aint nothin' but a number" former football great Herschel Walker displayed lots of heart and toughness in his MMA debut last night (Saturday January 31).

Walker already had an amazing athletic pedigree going into the bout.

He won the Heisman Trophy while playing for the University Of Georgia in 1982. Then moving on to professional football, he played in the short lived USFL league before moving on to the NFL. Where he was a star with the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles before retiring in 1997.

So imagine being more than a decade removed from professional sports jumping into the world of Mixed Martial Arts.

Herschel, a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do took on 26 year old opponent Greg Nagy,

He dominated the fight before the referee stopped it in the 3rd round declaring Walker the winner by TKO.

Walker said after the fight "this is one of the hardest things I have ever done"

His entire purse was donated to a Dallas area charity, Project Turnaround.
