                            STRIKEFORCE CEO Scott Coker 

    WHEN:           Monday, Jan. 24, at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT

    WHAT:           Walker and Coker will participate in a national media conference call to discuss Walker's upcoming second professional MMA bout on the televised undercard of a STRIKEFORCE World Championship Doubleheader on Saturday, Jan. 29, at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., live on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).

                            Walker (1-0) will return to the cage to face Scott Carson (4-1) in a heavyweight bout. The matchup between Walker and Carson was originally scheduled for Dec. 4, but was postponed after Walker sustained a cut above his eye during a training session.

    Walker, 48, the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and two-time NFL Pro Bowl competitor, is undefeated at 1-0 in his latest athletic endeavor - MMA.  A 1999 College Hall of Fame inductee who was also selected to Sports Illustrated's NCAA All-Century Team that year, the 6-foot-1, 220 pound Walker, of Atlanta, holds a fifth degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and boasts additional training in the combat disciplines of Muay Thai and Kenpo.   

    On Jan. 30, 2010, Walker made an impressive professional MMA debut, scoring a third- round TKO (punches) over 26-year-old Greg Nagy. Walker has been training in San Jose, Calif., with Team AKA, one of the most prominent MMA fight camps in the world that is also the home of former STRIKEFORCE world champions Cung Le and Josh Thomson.  

      

    STRIKEFORCE World Welterweight Champ Nick Diaz (23-7, 1 NC) will make his second title defense when he faces Brazilian Evangelista Cyborg (18-13) in the main event. STRIKEFORCE World Middleweight Champ "Jacare" Souza (13-2, 1 NC) will put his belt on the line for the first time against KO artist "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler (18-6, 1 NC) in the co-feature of a stacked card.  Also, the latest prospect from MMA's first family, undefeated Roger Gracie (3-0), will battle former South African national wrestling champion andMMA star Trevor Prangley (23-6-1) at light heavyweight.
