Sapp is a rebel, he plays by his own rules. Most fighters try to be tough, to make it easier to win. Sapp is smarter than that. Everyone knows you just have to land one punch and he taps. Both guys get paid, opponent gets easy win, Sapp gets easy loss, everybody wins.

Genius!

Except the fans. although I find it hard to believe he has any left.

Bob Sapp literally has been stealing money for years now, however, if idiot promoters continue to pay him, he's entitled to continue doing it.

Oh, by all means, he certainly isn't the stupid one. He's collecting 80k per weekend by taking one punch and bowing out...the man is a genius to be quite honest, it's everyone else that's stupid.

Fair point, so it's down to any commissions now to see Sapp's fight fixing and refuse him license to fight.

This guy shouldn't be allowed to get payed this way, he can take a dive all he likes in Pro Wrestling!

The fact is, while shady promoters are willing to book him and there is very little that can be done about it.

Some states don't even have commissions and he also fights over seas a lot so he will always find a payday.

Who the hell would pay to watch this guy fight. We all know he's gonna gas out and get KTFO'D in the first round. He's a BODYBUILDER not a FIGHTER. Only Alistair Overeem can be both.

Thanks for sharing that. it was very enlightening. Bob is no dummy.

When this tour winds down he should team up with dan severn for a BATTLE OF THE BEASTS tour.

I wonder why he hasn't gone into pro rassling? Maybe he's taking less damage than those guys too?

I can guarantee you he is.

tapping after 2 or 3 half solid strikes is taking virtually no damage at all.
