Sapp came in at 356, Norte at 333. the only other fights that i can think of that were close are Fedor / Zulu, Hackney / Yarbourgh, Pele / Silva.

When I saw this topic I thought of Ginat Silva vs Akebono, Their combined weight is 870 Pounds ! And their combined height is 13 " 10 '. The fight was pretty sloppy and the finish was Funny and Silva look shocked.

Akebono

Giant Silva

Either that or Butterbean vs. Zuluzino. Or Emmanuel Yarbourogh vs anyone that wasn't a light weight.

I was surprised that Nortje won tbh. I noticed in the Sherdog article they talked Nortje up as "undefeated in his 10 professional boxing bouts", but they didn't mention his abysmal K-1 record. Seems like he loses to anyone with an ounce of talent. Looks great getting KO'd though, has provided some highlight reel material for Cro Cop and Jerome Le Banner.

Sapp was quick with the excuses I hear, but then I've come to expect little from Sapp after he threw his fight with Peter Aerts last year.

Sapp's 375 and Akebonos 520 = 895

Akebono is actually a grappling legend... just didn't fair so well in MMA. He was the first and ever only foreign born Yokozuna for **** sakes!!

Plus the view of any style aside from popularly showcased ones in MMA seem to get no respect either. Sumo is not only Japan's national sport, but one hell of a rough f'ing grappling sport.

And Yokozuna is not just a former WWF wrestler, thats the highest rank achievable in Sumo, and thats not an easy rank to achieve by any means.

I think there are only two alive right now, and there's been less than 70 in history. Sumo is wild.

Not sure what their weight was but dont forget Zulo and Nog. That had to be alot to. I bet Zulo was about 400 himself and Nog about 230-240.

any fight with Akebono in it has to be the winner. either him against Choi or him against "giant"silva....Akebono alone weighs 440
