Except Shaq is completely skilled at his game.
If Bob Sapp could use his size to his advantage the way shack does, he would be a much better fighter. So I think that's a bad analogy.
But anyways, I don't get all the hate on Sapp. I think everyone knows he's a super-strong guy with very little skill. But it is interesting to watch guys with pure talent take on guys with pure power. Obviously power accounts for something in MMA and K1, or Bob Sapp would never have made it where he is today.
Is he talented, no! But is he an EFFECTIVE fighter, I'd say yes, or he couldn't have beat guys like Kimo and Hoost!
