(Can you believe he had no professional training before this fight? Amazing.)
The more the subject gets discussed, the more it seems that the only people who really want to see Jose Canseco fight Herschel Walker in Strikeforce are Jose Canseco and the boys down at Cesar Gracie’s gym. These are the jokers who encouraged Canseco in the first place by inviting him down to train, and now one of them has gone and created a website designed specifically to push the fight (thanks to Cagewriter for the link). The site features a petition that’s aiming for 50,000 signatures (as of the time of this writing, they have a total of 49), and a home page that insists Canseco-Walker will not a be a “joke” of a fight. And what’s their reasoning behind this statement, you ask? There really isn’t any, aside from a list of prominent fighters who "Team Gracie Fighter" has trained thus far, implying that they can turn almost anybody into a legit fighter.
But where this website really goes wrong is by including a poll in the sidebar. By giving visitors the option to vote against the proposed bout that is the raison d’être for the entire website, they’ve opened the door for disaster. Currently, 55% of voters have answered “NO WAY!!” to the question “Do you want to see Jose Canseco fight Herschel Walker?”
You know what that’s called? That’s called democracy in action. The people have spoken.
