After over a year’s absence from the fight game, Bob Sapp is back. Cage Rage promoter Andy Geer has confirmed that the 350-pound behemoth known as “The Beast” has signed on with Cage Rage.

“We will be releasing some more information tomorrow,” Geer told The Fight Network moments before the Cage Rage 20 press conference. “But yes, we’ve signed him.”

It has not been confirmed whether Sapp, 8-2-1, whose K-1 contract was terminated after he failed to appear for a fight with four-time K-1 World Grand Prix Champion Ernesto “Mr. Perfect” Hoost, will be moving to England, however, he will participate in the next Cage Rage 21 against an unnamed opponent.

“There’s all kinds of rumors regarding his opponent,” said an anonymous Cage Rage representative. “There’s definitely more than enough heavyweights to choose from: Butterbean, James Thompson, Mark Kerr, Mustafa Al Turk.”

The huge kickboxer-mixed martial arts competitor, best known for his larger than life personality and proportions, was spotted around the Wembley Plaza Hotel where the Cage Rage 20 weigh-ins were taking place, but was unavailable for comment.

Bad news for the MMA world. I cant stand Bob Sapp. His weapon is his size. Which i personally think is stupid. He is a SHW who constantly takes on HW-LHW fighters. I would like him to fight someone his own size like Eric Pele or Aleksander Emilenko. That would show him. Not to mention his technique is NFL.......................wtf does this mean? He just charges at guys and takes em down??? He only ever played in one NFL game.
**** sakes my friend just got fired for lying on his resume. And Bob Sapp gets Big $$$ cuz he lies on his.

Wouldn't mind seeing Cro Cop dish him out some quick punishment again though.

Sapp falls into the Freak Show category for me. I think he sucks but I still love watching him fight. He's no Giant Silva though, he's the ultimate Freak Show!

I'm sure he doesn't pick his opponents himself.

But i heard he made millions fighting in K-1. That may be highly inflated but K-1 fighters get a shitload of pay. Bob Sapp doesn't have a style yet and all he can do it get in a guard and pound on someone. I wish he would learn to strike or even pass guard. I don't mind watching fighters who have even some skill. But Bob Sapp is boderline freakshow. Not to mention his anntics are ridicuilous.

I would laugh my butt-off if Butterbean Koed him. I'll never forget him falling to the floor and crying when Cro-cop liver kicked him.

They've signed Sapp and a lot of the big name UK guys for cage rage 21 and I am REALLY surprised tat Dana white hasn't snapped them up for his ufc that night. Daley, Abdul, Zikic, Weir, Epstien, Reid of the UK guys. Also with the rumor of Vitor Belfort fighting that night I can see a lot of the UK fans going to cage rage instead of the UFC that night.
