Times sure do change. Sometimes for the better. I remember when a lot of people were afraid that Sapp would ruin the sport by proving that bigger and stronger wins.

No one thought he was a joke when he was doing this to Nog

Many people thought the 265 hw limit was set with him in mind.

Lucky for all of us Bob wasn't serious

Some of this isn't fair. At one time Sapp at least trained like a professional and went out intending to win. Now days its strictly for a paycheck.

Bob needs to stop. He actually had potential once, but he pissed that away a long time ago.

This one's even better. He taps before the submission is even locked in, lol.

Just been looking over his career after his match with Filipovic popped up in the related section on Youtube. I really do depise this man, how is he even a fighter? He comes in swinging wildly, takes a punch or knee and falls down. Actual fighters keep going until their lights are put out, this douche feels a little pain and proceeds to lie down acting like he'd been stabbed. Seems like a child thats messing with the big boys, he'll do damage if he can but once the ante is raised he backs up and quits. How many of his fights end by forfeit? Way too many in fact, regardless of whether he gets the 10 count, he's well able to meet the count but chooses to lie there crying. I know it shouldn't bother me so much as he's a joke, but everyone else is a serious professional that actually trains before a fight, its quite clear he just bodybuilds and simply swings at a bag once a month.

To be fair, CroCop broke his orbital bone so a tap is absolutely ok if the vision is impaired. And as oldfan pointed out, he did look pretty good in the Nogueira fight and dominated until he got caught in that armbar. He even won against Ernesto Hoost in K1 twice which isn't something a lot of people can claim.

He just reacts like Brock Lesnar when getting hit himself.

I think that the Cro Cop loss is what turned his career from rising star with some promise to the freak show he's become. He'd only lost twice in K-1 and MMA before his loss to Cro Cop. After his loss to Cro Cop he would fight smaller guys and loose to more skilled guys and his late career is pitiful.

Danger is not over yet for Bob cause of Cristiano Nuno and Bruno Lobato too.

These two MMA fighters from Brasil are also nicknamed Cro Cop.. Bob should not run into them i guess..

The man really does have the pain tolerance of an elderly women. Shame really. When he was beating down Big Nog, I along with most of the population watching thought he was soon to be the most dangerous man on the planet. 6'6 350 lbs of solid muscle, Hadn't been defeated in K-1 or mma yet with 2 wins over Ernesto Hoost, the greatest K-1 fighter EVER... its crazy how everything turned out.

Kinda wished he had fought Tyson. If an elbow from a 185 lb'er made him cry, How about a left hook from the baby eater himself in lighter gloves. Even a Tyson who was waaay out of his prime would have demolished this overgrown baby.

Well granted his pain tolerance has gone to hell now but at the time of promoting the Tyson fight he still had some juice in him. The fact is that he was a beast before his loss to Cro Cop. Once Cro Cop broke his orbital bone it all went down.
