Bob Sapp To Sign With M-1 Partner, Wants Fedor Fight

The following are some excerpts from an article by Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com:

Sapp said his desire to fight Emelianenko was whetted after watching him struggle early during last month's submission victory over the much-bigger Hong-Man Choi in Japan. At 6-0 and 235 pounds, Emelianenko also would have a considerable size disadvantage against the monstrous Sapp (6-6, 360 pounds).

“When I see what Emelianenko did against Choi, it shows how good he is but it also showed his weakness against larger opponents,” Sapp said. “I'd love to fight Fedor.”

The article continued:

Sapp said he is set to sign a new contract with K-1 and that the Japan-based kickboxing promotion has plans to work with M-1. Such an arrangement could ultimately lead to a Sapp vs. Emelianenko dream bout either in Japan or the U.S.
