MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

In Case You Missed It: Aleksander Emelianenko TKOs Bob Sapp in Fight of The Year Candidate [NOT REALLY]


(Props: oleggor21)

The recently-unretired Aleksander Emelianenko made his return to MMA Saturday night in Moscow against Bob Sapp, and if the fighter introductions, stare-down, and instructions didn’t last longer than the actual fight, they were certainly more exciting. First, the good news. Aleks appears to be doing more sit ups and less shaving than ever before, resulting in an epic monastery beard and less gut than the Emelianenko family has collectively seen in twenty years.

And in the good news/bad news category, depending on your perspective, Bob Sapp is still putting food on his presumably massive plate. While that’s good for “The Beast,” it’s not so great for fans of legitimate MMA fights, since Sapp’s preferred method of making money in recent years is to take apparent dives against whomever he is matched up against. To his credit, Sapp actually threw some strikes and attempted some clinch work this time around, and Aleksander actually had to land multiple solid shots before Sapp assumed the fetal position. Once there, Sapp didn’t even tap out; the referee stepped in to stop the pathetic mismatch/collusion.

Following the stoppage, the Russian helped his opponent up and they talked to one another. Then they kept on talking. Lots of talking between these two. Glad we got to witness these friends catch up.

Anyway, that’s Sapp’s eleventh consecutive “loss” and his fourteenth out of his last fifteen bouts. Aleks got back on the winning track after getting choked out by Jeff Monson in his previous bout.

Check the video above out if you want to see some distinctly not-impressed Russian audience members. By the way, UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones was apparently paid a lot of money to be at the eventand he got to meet Fedor. Must be nice.

@bgoldstein 9 year old Jones delivers a mighty karate chop to Sapp's knee causing Bob to collapse. Jones then Hadoukens Bob a few times until the terrifying noises cause Bob to tap.

Man dip set. You are one of the dumbest posters on the Internet. You completely destroy the English language.

Jesus sapp look at wat you've become, ur a whore with no self respect at all. At this point there's nothing u can do to change so just retire, and go away. Stop taking money for diving in fights, on one believes ur competitive at all anyways. Not even ur own mother doesn't respects u. So just retire, and please go hide under a rock for the rest of ur like, in shame so no one can ever see ur face.
