New Year’s Eve’s *Other* Freak Show…

While Yarennoka! was ringing in 2008 in Saitama, K-1 was celebrating its own New Year’s Eve MMA tradition in Osaka with its Premium 2007 Dynamite!! show, a 15-fight card that featured Joachim Hansen, Kid Yamamoto, Kazushi Sakuraba, and a marquee matchup between Bob Sapp and Bobby Ologun. (Full results from the night can be found here.) You already know Bob Sapp as the crybaby brawler who we’ve begged to retire. Bobby Ologun is a Nigerian-born television personality, beloved in Japan for his butchering of the Japanese language and minstrel-like facial expressions; he’s fought at the last four K-1 Premium Dynamite!! events, including a 16-second loss to Hong Man Choi last year. On Monday, Bob Sapp needed over four minutes to beat Ologun. It’s hard to think of an American equivalent to a sideshow like this — maybe picture Tracy Morgan spending four months in a gym and then fighting Mike Tyson. Enjoy…

Well, something tells me Sapp's not all that bright. I don't think he understands the concept of torquing joints. I think the holds are just a little to complex for him to pull of. I also think he likes being laughed at.

Why can't Sapp just learn some submissions? If he took a couple years to train in nothing but BJJ he could become extremely dangerous. A man with that kind of strength should be able to rip someone's arm off! Sapp, all you do is run straight at your opponent anyway, why not grab him and use your strength to gain a submission victory?
