Do I think he could beat every HW in the show? No, but I do think he could have beaten 3 of the 4 guys so far if his cardio is even half decent still.
You gotta remember though, he is almost 50 and took some good licks playing football...I don't think he is in the prime of his athletic career at all right now...KWIM?

although walker is inexperience and his skills are questionable no one can deny that he is a freak of nature. Although he is old the man still kept in shape. Just look at randy at what he can do at 46. He still does his morning routine of 2,500 sit ups and 1,500 push ups.

Definetily not in his prime anymore, but I have a feeling he still has better cardio than most of the guys in TUF right now and he seems to be in pretty decent shape overall. Also he has something like 5th or 6th degree black belt in tae kwon do so he has half of the guys this season beat in skill level already.
Im not saying he could make an impact on ufc or something, but I disagree with people who keep making fun of his comments, because most of the stuff he says actually makes sense even though there is some typical trash talk included too.

Randy was a world class wrestler, that translates pretty well to mma. Walker is an old football player that has a tae kwon doe backround and is just starting to get into mma. The guy is almost fifty and thinks that he can jump into mma and be competitive with legit fighters. He is out of his mind. Being a football player doesnt have anything to do with mma.

I put your error in bold.

He doesn't think he can be competitive against legit fighters....he thinks he can be competitive against TUF 10 fighters.

Not a single one of them is legit. Not Kimbo, not that blob Roy Nelson, none.

His comments arent where i take him thinking he can compete with legit heavyweights from. Him competeing in strikeforce (which has some legit heavyweights, two top ten guys) is what shows that he thinks he can compete with legit heavyweights.

DMX is fighting in november (seriously), DMX/Hershel should be great after...

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''
