Gargantuan heavyweight and entertainment personality Bob Sapp (11-6-1) today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he has been pulled from a fight with Soa Palelei (9-2) at "Impact FC 2: The Uprising - Sydney."

Sapp, who is currently in Bulgaria after recently completing work on a remake of "Conan the Barbarian," said he received an email today from the Australian MMA startup informing him that the promotion would not fly him to Sydney for the July 18 fight because the plane ticket is too expensive.

I personally thought the big news was that he was in the new Conan movie....I loved those shows when I was a kid!

This is going to end up costing them a whole lot more money than the plane ticket would have if the thing was under contract

Agreed. I'm thinking about pursuing legal action...
