From MMAJunkie.com: Strikeforce heavyweight and former NFL great Herschel Walker (1-0 MMA, 1-0 SF) suffered a deep cut in training and has been forced to withdraw from next month's "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" event. Strikeforce officials today confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Featuring a light heavyweight matchup between Dan Henderson and Renato "Babalu" Sobral, "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" takes place Dec. 4 and airs on Showtime. "I feel terrible about this," Walker stated in today's official release. "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." Walker had been expected to face one-time WEC veteran Scott Carson (4-1 MMA, 0-0 SF). According to Strikeforce officials, a Daniel Cormier knee strike opened a "deep cut under [Walker's] left eye that required multiple stitches"... Despite the setback, Walker said he hopes to return to action quickly. "I hope to fight again as soon as the cut heals," Walker said.
