Default Kimbo Slice = America's Bob Sapp

I thought this up some time ago. Just think about it, both are hugely built black men who have taken their respective MMA markets by storm. Sapp truly was the biggest thing in MMA in Japan for some time, Slice has become the most talked about name in American MMA.

Just thought I'd throw this out there. Sure they have plenty of dissimilarities, but their circumstances are strikingly similar imo.

Thats not the point.

Both captured their respective markets. And, they're build and physicality are somewhat similar.

Also, I've got my money on Sapp, btw.

i thnk one big, big difference here is that kimbo is being trained by legendary and favorite fighter of mine bas rutten. i'll take bas over kimbo and sapp.

kimbo has been a legendary streetfighter for a while in underground america. so he comes from a different place.

i'm not so sure what u mean really.

i mean, so they are both black and big respectively. what else are u thinking of?

idk about sapp beating kimbo. kimbo hits more like a xy guy. he has that soldity to his punches - and we hit very very hard. kimbo has decent timing and i could see him measuring sapp with a big shot.

Its not about Kimbo vs Sapp actually,

I just think there are major similarities between them. Sapp was the number one star in the Japanese market for a few years. Kimbo is the biggest name in MMA in the US today, even in spite of Couture and Fedor.

I don't know if its good marketing or what, but my point is that these two guys each sorta took over their respective MMA markets upon their emergence on the scene. I just think its sort of an interesting comparison.

Sapp wasn't ****, he was decent because of his size up until he got money and got hit. He still had a war with Nog and showed some heart in his two wins over Ernesto Hoost.






This was the short end of Sapp IMO, he is a joke now.

Perhaps Kimbo would beat him, he would right now because Sapp is scared of getting hit but he actually fought somebodies unlike Kimbo who has fought some guys off the street, Ray Mercer, Bo Cantrell, Tank Abbott and now James "KO loss" Thompson.

I will wait until someone actually tries to take Kimbo to the ground.

I don't think so, I mean if you want to compaire them marketing wise then I still would have to disagree. Kimbo is a big name in the MMA world as a novelty right now, Bob Sapp was fighting major fighters in Japan when he really started to make it big.

I think Bob Sapp was MADE into a fighter, Kimbo is a born fighter, reguardless of all the hate that Kimbo gets, his hands are very good for a guy who has never had proffesional training. Even in his videos on the street, you can see the skills he has with his hands.

I truly think people will suprised as to how good Kimbo can be. If you look at the great fighters of today, most if not all, started in the wrestling or ju-jitsu game first. Kimbo is an exception in that he is a striker first and foremost and all he has to do is really learn the ground defense and he will be a very formidable opponent. He has the athleticism and the strength to do it.
