A lot of people criticize Sapp.
They call him a talentless freak show that shouldnt be in mma or in k1.
I personally think that he does quite well for someone with relatively no real formal training or refined skills.
Sure, he cant beat the 5 top ranked mma fighters and most top ranked K1 fighters, but he still beat Hoost twice in K1 when he was at the top of his game!
Not to mention that even if you cant beat the top 5 to 10 ranked fighters, that it still puts you ahead of a whole bunch of fighters that have trained formally for years.
More importantly, his role (with a few other giants) in MMA/K1 is to satisfy viewers curiosity. Most fight fans, usually the skeptical, always question if a skilled fighter can beat a really really really big guy? So far Bob Sapp has been the most successfull really really really big guy brought in by any promotion. So, hats off to him.
