Default How do you rate a prime Bob Sapp as a fighter.

Sapp weighs over 100 lbs more than Brock Lesnar. He has beat Ernesto Hoost a twice. He almost beat Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. He is twice the size of most heavyweights. How do rate prime Bob Sapp?

He is so bad it's hard to know when his prime was. When do you think it was out of interest?

His Prime is essentially before he lost to Nogueira. After that, Sapp seemed to lose to everyone.

Face facts, he became a cult icon in Japan. He did what he could with what he had. For one, he overwhelmed Hoost with bull rushes NOT technique.

If his 'prime' is one fight I think that answers the question where he should be rated.

I rate bob really low too. He's a big body and has a puncher's chance and that's it. Ernesto fought piss poor against Bob.

Sapp was sorta like a japanese version of Brock Lesnar. A guy who started his career out really good but didnt develop as a fighter.

Sapp was a huge sensational superstar. You gotta admit that. Beating Hoost twice is like equal to beating Frank Mur and Randy Couture.

sapp aint japanese lol. And I really don't see Sapp as a fighter. He was completely carried by his physical size. He didn't wrestle, box, kick, or do anything well.

At the very least brock was a very good wrestler.
