NEW YORK — Herschel Walker is starting a new career in mixed martial arts.
The 47-year-old former NFL running back said Monday that he has signed a multi-fight contract with promoter Strikeforce. Walker will begin a 12-week training camp next month in San Jose, Calif.
The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner already holds a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
