    I think Crocop hit Sapp with a liverkick and then the left hook for the broken orbital, so that's probably why you thought it was a body shot that brought him down.

    Either way, I don't think orbital lobe fractures are a typical way for PRIDE matches to end, and just looking at pictures, and the sheer size of Sapp, I gotta say that Crocop must hit really really friggin hard.

    Sapp vs. Abbot would be entertainment squared.

    Personally, I llike watching Sapp fight. It's awesome. Sure, he doesn't have the techniques, he has no grappling game worth admiring, but one does have to give him credit for getting in there. There's a whole bunch of other big guys that don't.

    Plus, it just goes to show that no matter how many "masters" there, no matter how many secret techniques get passed down, and no matter how many ultimate grapple moves get invented, nothing trumps just being a massively sized, muscle-bound mand with big meaty fists.

    Well, okay, he gets beaten regularly by some well-skilled fighters... but still, those are still some top--notch people.

    You admire guys who beat down people 100 pounds lighter than them? Well I beat down midgets and kindergardeners all the time, where are my fucking props?!

    I also like Sapp. He's fun to watch, even if he's less than skilled. I think Sapp vs Mark Hunt could be entertaining.

    Yeah, that's basically it, although I don't give him "props" per say for it. He gets no credit from me for his wins. He's just funny as hell to see fighting in the ring. He's the example of what sheer power can do, and that you don't really need to learn how to fight. Okay, scratch that, I'm sure Sapp is at least more than just a little bit proficient. But his strength goes a long way. That's what makes it entertaining. Like a linemen in football; probably doesn't have the footwork of the other players, but damnit, you can't stop him.

    Oh, and props for beating up on midgets and kindergartners. =p

    Sapp is always funny to watch........especially when he squares off against an intimidated smaller guy who doesnt hesitate to land some devastating low-leg kicks on Sapp with no Remorse LMAo

    375 lbs behind a punch can put just about anyone to sleep, but it doesn't mean he can fight. He has no grappling skills, no kicking skills and hell he doesn't even know how to throw combinations properly...he just bulldozes his opponents with his massive size.

    Then you put him against a real fighter like Crocop or Hoost and they drop him with body and leg shots.
    I watched one of the Hoost vs. Sapp fights and Hoost basically just got bowled over by Sapp. Sapp would keep charging foward and start windmilling and Hoost would just cover up. I hate seeing size and power overwhelm skill...
