Perhaps it is appropriate that we are kicking off the disappointment and pent up frustration of another work week with none other than Bob Sapp, the most disappointing and utterly frustrating figure in the history of MMA. After landing his most devastating punch in his
last ten fights career against Bill Mahood at Saturday’s weigh ins, Sapp’s headlining bout against James Thompson at Super Fight League 1 would end, go figure, in the abrupt, anticlimactic fashion of Sapp’s signature move, the Sapp Tapp, the Sappmission, or whatever variation of the term you prefer to use. Sapp has become so famous for quitting when the going gets tough that it appears Tiger Woods has adopted a similar strategy.
But, believe it or not, some fighters actually came to fight yesterday, and thankfully, the gents over at SFL have been nice enough to grant us a full playback of the event on their Youtube page. Check out the video above, and honor “The Beast” in Sappian fashion, by prematurely stopping it when the main event comes around.
Speaking of pent up frustrations, jump to 2:20 of the above video to see an adorable MMA fighter named Amanda Cooper unleash her inner demons on Tori Music at WXC 35, which went down in Michigan last weekend. Maybe I am too quick to jump to conclusions, but when I looked at both participants involved in this fight, I did not predict the cute girl in the pink top and booty shorts to uncork an ass whooping on the tattooed, cornrowed female across the cage. What’s that, you say? Cooper is a two time Golden Gloves champion? Yep, I’m an asshole.
And now that were all inspired by Ms. Cooper’s triumphant, stereotype shattering performance, let’s keep the ball rolling with the trailer for an upcoming documentary based on beloved MMA icon and Tapout founder Charles “Mask” Lewis. Directed by Bobby Razak, whom you may remember from the similarly excellent History of MMA, Mask documents the momentous rise and untimely fall of Lewis, and looks to be another solid entrance in Razak’s growing MMA filmography. There is no release date yet set for Mask, but we will keep you informed as details arise.
And just so we don’t end your morning on a low note, here’s a quick video of UFC Lightweight champion Ben Henderson demonstrating some of his signature moves. Are you watching this, Frankie? Because knowing is half the battle. And the other half is being able to take one of those kicks without sharting yourself.
