Herschel Walker hasn't closed the door on his MMA career just yet.
The 51-year-old former NCAA and NFL star -- not to mention Olympian -- hasn't fought in over two years, however, he told The Lavar Arrington Show with Chad Dukess on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, that he wants to fight one more time, and he wants that fight to take place inside the UFC Octagon.
"If I was younger, I would be doing it right now. Because I'm a little bit older and I have a business going, I would like to do one more fight and then, I think, it's time for me step aside and give it to the young people. But I would love to do one more fight."
When asked by Dukes where he would want that fight to take place, the former Heisman Trophy winner emphatically said "in the UFC."
Walker is 2-0 as an MMA fighter. In his pro MMA debut, he defeated Greg Nagy via third-round TKO at Strikeforce: Miami in Jan. 2010 and then stopped Scott Carson in the first round of their fight at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg in Jan. 2011. After Zuffa purchased Strikeforce in March 2011, Walker's MMA career appeared to be over.
UFC president Dana White, who has never seemed too interested in signing Walker to the UFC, did not respond to a request for a comment on Walker's statements.
