[VIDEO] Bob Sapp Outguns Alistair Overeem & Mark Hunt in One Night, Death of God Confirmed

For the longest time, we thought Bob Sapp‘s muscles were an extension of his personality, which is to say, fake. Like, Spongebob Squarepants “Anchor Arms” fake. Sure, they looked realistic and everything, but we always believed that underneath all the state-of-the-art makeup and Styrofoam padding was a frail, perpetually horrified struggling actor who just wanted to do some method acting before everything spiraled out of control. Why else would Sapp fall to the mat crying as soon as his opponent even looked at him the wrong way? He’s a sensitive artist that has feels, that’s why.

Unfortunately, Sapp pretty much shattered our universe and proved once and for all that he does posses strength in that Rhinosaur build of his, via a Japanese arm-wrestling tournament that took place over the weekend. Although the tourney featured such actual fighters as Alistair Overeem and Mark Hunt, Sapp absolutely Lincoln Hawked the competition without even breaking a sweat. You know, kind of like how he collects 50k per fight to do the complete opposite.

The entire video is above and also features Kazushi Sakuraba, a Sumo in a track suit, and at least one advertisement that will give you the heebie-jeebies. So basically, it’s every Japanese game show you’ve ever witnessed. Enjoy.

Dream Is Seriously Switching to a Cage, Promises Visually Stunning/Totally Weird Promo Video


(Props: MMA Fanhouse)

If we’ve learned anything by obsessively following MMA, it’s that a change in fighting surface is usually a sign that an organization is in serious trouble.  So when we saw this promo video for Dream.12 promising to “appease the wrath of God in rage” by putting their October 25 event in a cage, we got a little worried.  For several reasons, really.  Never let it be said that the Dream art director is afraid to take risks, but we have to wonder whether the decision to switch to a cage is a) permanent, and b) a sign of desperation.  

We also have to wonder what Dream’s basis is for advertising Alistair Overeem’s participation.  “The Demolition Man” is fighting in K-1 this weekend, and then he’s rumored to be going back to Holland for the Golden Glory ten-year anniversary show on October 17.   It’s hard to imagine that Overeem and his recovering hand would sign up for three fights in less than a month.  If we ask ourselves which party is most likely to be knowingly misleading people about what their next event will consist of, we’re probably going to say it’s the same people who made the weird artsy promo video about a wrathful God and the ways in which an island nation might appease Him.
