Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?


Looks like somebody didn’t read our list. According to a press release, Bob Sapp will make his “highly-anticipated” return to MMA competition when he headlines “Strikeforce at the Dome” in Tacoma, WA, on February 23. Sapp’s opponent will be named shortly.

Arguably the world’s worst pound-for-pound mixed martial artist active today, Bob Sapp’s career highlights in the past two years include:

— Agreeing to headline a May 2006 K-1 event in Holland against Ernesto Hoost, and then backing out halfway through the show.

— Agreeing to fight Gary Turner at Cage Rage 21 in February of this year, then backing out a few days before the fight was scheduled to go down.

— Cracking up Jay Leno with his impression of Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade.

— Defeating “Hard Gay” at a HUSTLE Pro Wrestling event on November 4.

— Eating hoagies?

Best of luck to Strikeforce and Ticketmaster in dealing with all of the refund demands that will result from Sapp’s upcoming non-appearance. The people of Tacoma deserve nothing but the best from your respective customer service departments.

I'm an avid MMA fan that just moved to Seattle WA from Florida.
This is the closest large high end MMA show that I've ever lived near.
Supposedly Josh Thomson will fight Gilbert Melendez at this event.
If that is true and they add a few other decent fights then its worth seeing.
If Sapp shows and fights that'll be entertaining but in the end
it is not something that'll sell my ticket either way.
It said somewhere online that it'll be 10 fights so if they
give us 5 lame fights and 5 are good then I'll be happy.

I agree, he's not good. BUT - His personality in that appearance is fucking awesome.
