Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

The quest continues for a fight against Herschel Walker. Strikeforce officials have repeatedly said they're not interested in bringing Jose Canseco into the fold and they've also reiterated there's been no sitdown or negotiations. By looking at this photo, we know they broke bread. 

That is Canseco pictured (on the left) speaking with Strikeforce matchmaker Rich Chou and Scott Coker, the CEO, sitting in the background at P.F. Changs in Pleasanton, Ca. Looks like Canseco is getting sick of seeing Strikeforce make him look like he's lying about this meeting. 

Maybe Strikeforce is actually considering making this Walker-Canseco fight? It's almost certain Walker is going to fight again in the cage. He was interviewed last night during the Strikeforce: Challengers show in San Jose. Showtime announcer Mauro Ranallo also said there would be a big announcement on Monday. Could it be a Walker fight?

Yahoo! Sports Dave Meltzer reported earlier today that Walker is a possibility on the Apr. 17 CBS card in Nashville. Seems like a quick turnaround for Canseco, who promised he would train for three months with Cesar Gracie if he did get the Walker fight. Coker was quoted on Friday saying Canseco, is no longer training with Gracie.
