Since there has been trouble with putting super heavyweight fighters into American fight cards, this card would be taking place in Canada and would be headlined with a superfight between Sapp and fellow K-1 veteran Mark Hunt.

God i hope this takes place. Ive been wondering if the beast has anything left in the tank. I don't like his chances against the iron chin of hunt though. You never know, if sapp's cardio improved and he's been training....long layoff though. Hunt should own him with more technical strikes and the cardio/experience factor. This would be the first time i would suggest leg kicks as an offense for Hunt.

Wow. In my oppinion Mark Hunt is going to demolish Bob Sapp. I'd really like to see that fight though.

Poor Bob Sapp. Hunt may be slow enough that Sapp can actually get those big ass mits of his on him a couple times, but my prediction is Sapp with another broken orbital.

Long layoff? Sapp just fought a couple months ago in K-1. Sapp showed what he had left in the tank against Aerts... one knee to the body and the big man is in the fetal position... again. He should stick to Pro Wrestling these days.

Mark Hunt wins this easily. Bob Sapp's punches won't affect him one bit.

Not an accurate showing, sapp took that on short notice against probly the most sucessful k1 fighter ever (def. most prolific big name). He replaced Remy Bonjasky. Did anyone expect that a man of sapp's size could be in fighting shape on short notice? also notice that body work was what did him in (lack of training camp). Sapp should never be counted out as long as long as he can walk to the ring. also, if it were MMA aerts may not have made it as long as Sapp did in the stand-up fight. I wouldnt count out anyone w. the physical ability of Sapp just yet. I bet he has the ability to hold hunt down too and cause his equally out of shape opponent to gas. Lets not forget the GnP power he showed against Nog.
