Bob Sapp's latest knockout loss was predictably embarrassing
Bob Sapp's fight this weekend went exactly as everyone expected.
In fact, 'fight' may be too strong of a term to use in this instance. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Bob Sapp had a 'Bob Sapp fight' at Fight Night Saint Tropez at the weekend.
Sapp, who you may remember as the chap who got his nose 'brokeded' in Adam Sandler's 2005 remake 'The Longest Yard', isn't a fighter.
Don't get us wrong, we know that he fights professionally - he has a lot of bouts across MMA and kickboxing on his resume - but, more often than not he quits before the fight really begins. The 14-fight losing streak he's riding in MMA is a testament to that, as is his 13-18 kickboxing record.
His opponent this time around was Gregory Tony, a three-time French kickboxing champion, three-time French Muay Thai champion, one-time French boxing champion, two-time European kickboxing champion, one-time Intercontinental Muay Thai champion and two-time Muay Thai world champion.
Sapp put up a decent fight...at the weigh-ins.

As for when it actually mattered, once they both stepped inside the ring to throw down, Sapp didn't put up any sort of a fight at all.
One leg kick followed by a left hand and it was over.
Sapp crumbled to the mat like a ton of bricks, shaking his head from side to side as the referee gave him the 10 count.

First round knock outs don't come much more embarrassing than that.
