if DW can ever get over his personal dislike of fedor / M1G, the division could totally use another top-5 or top-10 fighter like him.

even if fedor lost most of his UFC fights, the draw potential would still be crazy for a good year or two. it's a gold mine waiting to happen, really... particularly with the number of injuries among belt-holders that's been going on the past year.

Bob sapp just tapped due to a takedown...A TAKEDOWN! I really doubt he got injured. Maybe he did, but if so i bet it's more a result of lack of training than thompson's injury inducing takedown. I think the dude really doesnt care anymore and just wants to get paid.

Yep, it doesn't take much to get Sapp to quit.

Sapp doesn't take fighting seriously, he doesn't seem to improve in his fights and he just seems to fight the same way in every single fight of his. He only fights for the pay day he can get. But if he keeps on losing he won't be getting paid much. But there's always Japanese Pro-Wrestling, so he can always go back and starting wrestling again.

Sapp got some wins in PRIDE and then Powerbombed and beat Big Nog, then he got armbared and submitted by Big Nog, then he won a couple of fights and then his career began to go downhill and now he's a scrub in MMA.

Such is Sapp's fighting career.

With his size, if he took fighting seriously and began training properly he would be a top MMA Heavyweight fighter.

Sadly he only cares about the money, but if he keeps on losing the way he did with Thomson, his paydays will be less and less each time.

so Bob Sapp with very very basic boxing skill's destroys the Michael Jordan of Kickboxing who was only 35 years old???....

you are reaching....wierd fights and Sapp had no business beating Hoost ...at 35 , 45 or 50 years old...


especially since Sapp has gone on to lose to much lesser fighters..

Hoost was 37 and Sapp outweighed him by what, 150 pounds?

I saw Sapp's early K1 bouts the other day, along with some disturbing sapp videos, like when he was playing around with some several teen japanese pop group...it's one of those videos that makes you go wtf did i just watched...anyway........

He clearly outweighed hoost by a large margin and at the end of the day that was the key reason sapp beat him. Plus during those 2 bouts he was willing to take punishment for the sake of winning. He was motivated and had pride to not whine and quit. The dude's body can take a punch, his fighting spirit and willingness to get hit and hit back, just isnt there. Just look at that fight against mirko, there is no way that punch was harder than some punches and kicks hoost gave him. If he displayed the same toughness and desire to win plus a good training camp then one could imagine what could have been.

feisty.. I wasnt even comparing bob sapp to me. Im just saying, he ate so many punches and heavy leg kicks from hoost that it's perplexing to see him go down so easily with one shot that didnt even move his head. I didnt know mirko broke his orbital, so sorry if i didnt delve into the issue enough. I guess seeing his recent bouts before his earlier ones gave me an impression of him being simply a quitter. Even so, it's weird to see a big guy k1 fighter like him crumple up in a fetal position, seemingly cry and not know what to do over a broken orbital. Again im not comparing him to me.

i'm not sure how weird it is. no matter how big and strong you are, when you feel something break in the upper area of your face that's gotta be highly disturbing. nature tends to take over, you know? even a broken jaw might be preferable.

IIRC jon jones broke facial bones against... uh, either vera or bader i think. whoever it was, you could see the shock and disturbed look on their face as soon as it happened, and like sapp they kind of went in to shutdown mode...
