He stands at six-foot-five and owns a professional MMA record of 17-4. Walker got discovered by Dana White in a reality TV fight show called Tuesday Night Contender which was held in Brazil. In that event, he took Henrique da Silva to full time and won by a unanimous decision. Getting his UFC contract afterward, Walker went on to win three consecutive fights.
