I am not a big Sapp fan, but I admit he is a ****ing animal.

Speaking of animals, Sapp should not be allowed to fight humans anymore.

He wouldn't have anything if not size. I think its discouraging to fighters who train their asses off every day that a guy like that can gets pro fights so easily.

Nog beat him, It just shows skill and technique can overcome power. All be it, guys that big seem to be another species. I encourage him to keep going, I think it adds diversity.

I think he's OK for such an inexperienced fighter, like Pal said once he gets some more experience and training under his belt, he will be tough to beat.

yea, Nog even said it was a mater of time beofer he is unbeatable. Scary times are comming for the HW MMA's. dark times. The Dawn of Sapp.

imagine sapp learning the armbar!

seriously, sapp would be next to unstoppable if he learns some technical moves and trims a little of his fat off.

if there were a fantasy matchup forum, i would like to see the old mark kerr fight sapp! :D

I like the guy. I think one day when he has more skills and experience, there will be a lot of scared mofos. :shock:

i think in 6 or more fights people can't win anymore from him.
if you see his improvement in 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's good for his limited experience. We need to get him bigger oppenents though. Like Erickson, Heath could probably beat him, LeBanner could probably beat him in a stand up fight. We might see that fight at the K-1 Finals. Anyone know if it's going to be broadcast in the US.

I think he is ok, but apart from Nog, who is a freak himself, who has he fought that is any good? No one, a lot Japanese guys that are Pride card fillers. Put him with Herring or Erickson like Liverpuncher said, I think he will get beat by both of them. Even Igor if he is healthy would give him a run I think. Igor has that KO power that could stop him

Sapp skills are decent, what makes him so damn tough is all that mass coming at you and no way to control it. It will take someone with some decent size and the ability to know how to move it. Heath Possible, Igor sorry no way to much power he would be smashed unles he landed a couple of big hooks and I mean a couple. I know this may sound ****y but I fell a good match for Sapp would be me.

wow, you guy got profighter here already. big tom, you would give just about anybody a run for their money. but i do find sapp entertaining.

James Fulton

Tom I think you would take Sapp out. I also think Coleman could do it if he was feeling heavy. I feel both of you would score the takedown and control from the top.

I think there are other Heavies that would have a shot, but I think you and Coleman would be the best shots at beating him.

Wow, im just glad that this post has been full of well thought out, inteligent resoposes....

Im used to seeing posts like "NOG WILL SMASH HIM" or "HES STERIOD FREAK"

Good job guys! but i know your all smart asses who i will see those posts very soon.

Tom you got to talk to these Pride people and get a match with Sapp. Your not really being ****y by saying you can beat him. You got a lot more experience and you got the weight. As a fan that is the fight I wanna see. Big Cat vs The Monster.

Thanks for insight

Trust me when I say this I do want that fight to happen. Pride has there own way of doing things like it or not. I really do feel the fight will happen it is just a matter of time it would be like the second coming of Godzilla V. King Kong.

PS. Not sure who would be who in the above analogy

I think Bob continues to learn and develop his skills
Like Tom said its not his skills its the sheer size
I think the good wrestlers can take him and G&P him to death

we definitly need to see people go up on him his own size. Can you imagine how bad sapp would have been beatin if nogg was as big as him? I definitly wanna see remco/gary/tom erikson step up to the plate. Cmon mr.sapp pick on people your own size:)

Very true, and the Japanese love those monster flicks!

It will be sure to get asses on seats though, hopefully sooner than later...

MMA should have another two weight division up the actual HW, like SuperHW from 250 to 300 and ExtraLargeHW 300+.
