Mann Talk – All I want for Christmas is Walker vs. Ackah

Ackah is standing. Morton is not.
Ackah is standing. Morton is not.

This past weekend all western MMA fans were focused on a double order of MMA featuring both WEC and Strikeforce. Naturally, on the Showtime broadcast, there were several allusions to Herschel Walker’s forthcoming MMA debut. After the show, reporters grilled Scott Coker about who would fight the Heisman Trophy winner. At this point the promotion is still looking for the proper opponent.

Do you remember Bernard Ackah? Don’t feel bad if the name doesn’t ring a bell. I have a feeling Johnnie Morton could not pick the guy out of a line up. On June 2, 2007, the day of the amusement that was Dynamite!! USA, Ackah’s right hand left Morton stiff as a board in the ring.
