For years we have heard rumors about Herschel Walker crossing over into mixed martial arts. It looks like Herschel is finally ready to set a date.

In Peter King's MMQB, King reports that Walker will make his MMA debut this fall.

Herschel Walker said the other day on our radio gig that he's making his MMA fighting debut in November. "I told them I don't want to fight a bum. I want to fight a contender," he said.

Walker announced a possible dip into MMA waters back in November 2007. Apparently, Herschel has been practicing some form of MMA for thirty-plus years now, incorporating it into his football conditioning.

Let's hope Walker, who turned 47 this past March, fares better than some other pro athletes that recently "bursted" onto the MMA scene. Johnnie Morton and Jose Canseco immediately come to mind.

Though, no matter what happens, this still has to be a better decision than playing Russian roulette ... Right? Anyone?
