While training on Monday morning, Strikeforce heavyweight fighter, Herschel Walker suffered a deep cut under his left eye, which required multiple stitches.
This also means that Walker will be out of the December 4th Strikeforce event, “Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu II,” where he was scheduled to take on Scott Carson.
“I feel terrible about this,” said Walker, who was cut from a knee strike while training with AKA teammate and two-time United States Olympic wrestling team member Daniel Cormier. “I know things like this happen in all sports, but I had trained very hard and was excited to be returning to the cage again. I hope to fight again as soon as the cut heals.”
