I'll be the first to admit that Sapp does the sport a disservice by half-assing fights but no more than Helwani does by disrespecting fighters and flapping his gums at ELITE ATHLETES who show more heart, determination and courage in 5 minutes of training than he has in his whole life.
People WANT to see the brutish giant beaten by the superior technique of a smaller man. Therefore, Sapp will always sell tickets...especially in Japan.

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
