So many people are saying that MMA is a gimmick because Herschel Walker a former High school, College, and NFL football standout is trying to make it in the mixed martial arts. However, I say his presence and training show how serious MMA has become. When you have an elite athlete from another sport know that he can’t come in an take over just because of his athletisism you can say you are legit. Walker has never came in and said he is going to take MMA by storm. He has quietly came in and trained for months even before his first fight. He knew there were several disciplines he needed to learn like, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiujitsu, and Boxing. So, many say that his presense is a gimmick I say it shows legitimacy of the sport.
