Mismatch of the Century Alert: Soa Palelei to Face Bob Sapp at CFC 21 in April


(Sapp’s most recent effort attempt ”showing” against James Thompson. How do you know it’s a Bob Sapp joint? Because the introductions are twice as long as the fight.) 

In the difficult economic times that we are currently experiencing, Bob Sapp’s continual ability to stay employed as a “fighter” is nothing short of inspiring. And by inspiring, we mean infuriating. The man has fought nine times in the past three years, totaling just over fifteen minutes of ring time. There is not a doubt in any of our minds that the time he spent training for those fights was less than half of that. He has lost all but one of those contests, and word has it that the one man he defeated committed Sepukku shortly thereafter. Yet he continues to get work. He lost his last fight by submission due to (fake) leg injury, and tapped out to approximately two punches thrown by a BJJ expert in the fight before that. Yet he continues to get work.

Perhaps it is a sign, like the popularity of Jersey Shore or Nicki Minaj, that our culture has truly done a 180 in terms of what we consider worthy of our attention. Where in days past, it was a person’s abilities that brought them into the public eye, it seems now more than ever that we as a society are fixated with people who lack any discernable talent whatsoever.

Bob Sapp is living, breathing proof of this phenomenon.

Thankfully, it looks as if Sapp may finally be forced to take on a fighter who could make him reconsider his line of work altogether; someone who could possibly knock Sapp out cold before he gets the chance to call it quits. That man is none other than UFC veteran Soa Palelei, who is scheduled to take on Sapp at Cage Fighting Championships 21 on April 20th.

If there is a God, he will not allow Bob Sapp to walk away from this fight completely intact.

Since being bounced from the UFC following a third round TKO loss to Eddie Sanchez at UFC 79, Palelei has gone 7-1 and is currently riding a five fight win streak, with all of those victories coming by way of first round (T)KO. The last fight of Palelei’s we reported on was a brutal 28 second KO of Son Hai Suk at the AFC event that saw Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard submit TUF 7 finalist Jesse Taylor via second round heel hook.

One interesting fact heading into his fight with Sapp is that Palelei is expected to square off against 3-0 slugger Joe Kielur just six days beforehand. Let’s hope he doesn’t injure himself and is able to deliver the just beating Sapp truly deserves.

Also scheduled to throw down at CFC 21 are respectable MMA veterans Jeff Monson and Jim York. Monson was recently able to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Fedor Emilianenko back in November with a decision victory of his own over Alexey Oleinik just ten days ago. York, a Sengoku and KOTC veteran, has not fought since scoring a first round TKO over Lucas Browne in November of 2010.

No other bouts are scheduled for CFC 21 as of this moment. Now here’s a video of Bob Sapp getting rag-dolled by a man one-third his size.

Amen.

Sapp has truly made losing an artform. He is on an epic losing streak and only god knows how long it will last!

It's not hard to understand the fascination for Sapp. Just like we enjoy seeing certain fighters win we also enjoy seeing certain fighters get their ass kicked, and Bob Sapp always does so in entertaining fashion. Bob Sapp makes losing fun!

HAH, the introductions are twice as long as the fights. Good one Danga.

Definitely an awesome quote.

BTW how frikken big did James Thompson get? He's huge.

I tried to take Bob Sapp through the career mode in UFC Undisputed 3. I took him to the Jiu Jitsu training center and the system shut off.

I really feel like I'm missing something with the whole Bob Sapp constantly throwing fights saga. Is he really throwing the fights or does he just suck that badly? How can he still get licensed if he's lost like 8 in a row or whatever it's been? Can someone provide an honest, non sarcastic (I know I'm asking a lot here) explanation to this?

How could you say those mean things, Danga? Bob Sapp's been like a father to you. I'm very disappointed in you, to say the least.

Holy Smokes Cheech - that is way to cerebral and deep for CP. Shit, I try and use words with no more than 2 syllables because we all know that most of us on here are 2 brain cells away from being "ShitShow"
DangadaDang- March 26, 2012 at 4:24 pm
That's where I come in, 12oz. Bringing the cerebral since September of 2011. And Cheech, you and me both brother.

"Let’s hope he doesn’t injure himself and is able to deliver the just beating Sapp truly deserves." Damn JJ. You are one cold-hearted son of a bitch.

How about a Kimbo Slice vs Bob Sapp match just for shits and giggles? Someone call $kala and make this happen
DangadaDang- March 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm
At the minimum, Sapp would do a better job of flopping than Slice's previous opponents. MAKE IT HAPPEN $KALA.
