Walker wants to showcase his MMA talents at the highest level but his weight may be too much of a hurdle to overcome. Walker fought in the Heavyweight division in Strikeforce, but the competition level at that weight class in the UFC is 10x harder.
UFC President Dana White stated last year that Walker wouldn’t hold up in that tough division and his appearance in the octagon is unlikely.
Don’t tell Walker that though; the 51 year old athlete is in better condition than many 20 year old fighters and he isn’t known for letting other people tell him what he can and can’t do.
