Herschel Walker talks about Dana White, Tiger Woods, and training

Herschel Walker was on a local Bay Area sports talk show earlier this week and here are some quotes from him.

"It's very difficult to walk into the gym and you can't bring in what you used to know."

(On Dana White bashing him) "The guy doesn't know me. It's not motivation. I'm training at AKA and doing what I need to do to get ready. Dana says so many things. Dana's just upset because he's not the only show in town. There's another show (Strikeforce) that is doing very well.

"I train with Josh Thomson, Luke (Luke Rockhold), Javier Mendez, Dave Camarillo,and Bob Cook. This is the best gym in the world so I train here. We got Cain Velasquez and I also got a chance to work out with Cung Le. We got Kos (Josh Koscheck) too. Guys are training hard and working hard. We are a team.

(On his opponent which has not been named yet) "I want to get into the film room and find out what the guy's doing, and see how he fights. He doesn't know know anything about me. He will think I am an old man and can't move."

"This is one of the toughest workouts I ever done in my life."

"Javier said that you always got to be on offense because when they come, they gonna come."

"I want to step into the ring and it is going to be an experience thanks to AKA and Scott Coker."

"I love competition. . I have looked forward to this for a long time. This is the ultimate, ultimate competition."

"This is not a gimmick or a moneymaker. I'm not here to play around."

Walker also talked about the Heisman Trophy award and how he will always be a Tiger Woods fan. He said that everyone makes mistakes but the bigger guy is the one that will get off that mistake and try and do better. He said Woods was one of the best golfers to ever play the game.

The host talked about his 2500 pushups and 1600 sit-ups a day routine. Walker said he only gets four hours of sleep a night and he spends time practicing in the mirror all the moves that Mendez has been teaching him.

Thomson and Gilbert Melendez were both in-studio to talk about their fight at the Strikeforce Evolution show. They didnt' say anything of much significance but they both wore the same t-shirt from a company called Dethrone. I wonder if that was just a coincidence or planned out.
