Sapp could win this imo. Lashley needs to avoid all haymakers and just get the guy to the floor.

sort of borderline ken shamrock/kimbo isn't it? Either way I'll watch it...hopefully bobby improves a crapload and then moves up to Strikeforce

Gotta give it to Sapp for staying the big money fights for so long.

Sapp by KO, this will be incredible though.

depends if Sapp shows up to fight or pick up a paycheck...when he is there to fight, he is actually pretty tough..and has a ton of power.

but it seems like recently he just shows up to get paid, and after he is hit a couple times he just gives up..

I will probably say Lashley by TKO, I dont think Sapp is in it to win anymore..but if he does show up..it will be a good fight!

That's two big ass dudes in a cage

Lashley should take this one pretty easily with his wrestling. Then again, if he tests it on the feet.. well, let's just say I couldn't think of very many people I would rather not get hit by than Sapp

Bobby Lashley via Superplex from the top, and the cage implodes ala Brock Lesnar and Big Show.

5-6 years ago I would have said this fight is really close but would give it to Sapp.
But from what I've seen of Sapp in the past few years he doesn't look as rock solid as he once did.
Sapp could win on his tremendous experince curve of Lashley,but I don't know how game he will be coming into this bout.

Lashley will have a greater chance for the simple fact he's hungry to make an impact.
But if Sapp comes in good Shape,Lashley better be ready for a war.
