Bob Sapp added to Road FC VIII: Tour of Shame Continues

35_bob-sapp_g

While one yank – 10-1 flyweight Andrew Leone – fights in a legitimate Grand Prix bantamweight tournament in order to stake his claim to be one of or the best young fighters in Asia, another, more famous yank – Robert Malcolm Sapp – gets set to take part in what will most likely be his eleventh consecutive first round loss, his ninth consecutive first round MMA loss, and his nineteenth loss in his last twenty combined MMA and kickboxing records since his losing streaks began.

Bob Sapp was cool, and is still a good figure of fun, and I personally greatly enjoy his youtube antics. But as a friend of the yank whose great opportunity this is to shine, it’s a tad irksome to see centre stage truly taken by the man who will inevitably usurp him and gain all the attention – most of it negative – in Robert Malcolm. No one is fooled anymore – 99% of Sapp’s fights since 2005 have resulted in him being submitted or TKO’d in the first round, often in a manner that is both humorous and hilarious in equal measure. Bear in mind this is a 6’6″ hugely muscular black American man who could benchpress an elephant, who boasts two victories over Ernesto Hoost in K-1 and a near-win over prime Rodrigo Nogueira in PRIDE, with absolutely no shame who will do remarkably asinine and entertaining things on youtube and Japanese television in order to gain a worldwide fan following, and you can see why he still gains attention. But enough is enough – it is no longer fun to watch him try to set the record for “most first round losses in one-year in professional combat sports history” – an achievement he will surely reach, and soon.

Check out the FSA breakdown of Leone’s attempt to win the Asia Bantamweight Grand Prix at Road FC VIII, and also the fight involving Denis Kang on the same event.
