Robert Malcolm Sapp booked a ton of fights in advance for 2012, with pre-signed contracts, and proceeded to embark on a verifiable tour of shame; first round loss after first round loss. At this stage, between MMA and K-1 rules, his first round losing streak is well into double figures in the last two years alone. His “decline” itself, where he started losing regularly, dates back to roughly 2005.
This is the man who beat Ernesto Hoost twice in K-1 – albeit a controversial (to some) stoppage in the second fight. He also came close to finishing off Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in MMA rules, before the Terminator-like Brazilian managed to claw back into the fight and submit him.
These videos, the first part of which begins with Sapp clearly taunting Helwani about the payouts he is receiving from the Tour of Shame fights, playing dress-up and thanking the stars for having money.
Without further ado (wait for my “Tour of Shame” feature, coming soon) here is Sir Sapp poking fun at Ariel Helwani
Well, he’s always entertaining.
