Sapp: I've been working on my ground skills


Youíre a renowned striker with 2 victories over K-1 Legend Ernesto Hoost to list just 2 fights from your kickboxing record, Iím going to assume youíre going to be looking to knock out James Thompson?

Yes of course. I always look for a KO.

As well as your K-1 skills youíre more than capable on the ground, that fight with Big Nog was an epic battle, how hard have you been working on your ground skills in the lead up to this fight?

Iíve been working on my ground skills. Putting in there upwards of 3 to 6 hours a day dedicated to training. And of course part of it is groundwork, and being that I am a striker, ground work for me is more for positioning and striking on the ground.

The only thing he's been working on is suck and fail.

He is trolling. He probably trains one hour a month.

Sapp
Thompson can only last 3 min into a fight

Like I said in another thread sapp is cruising until sfl where he'll show just how good he is and get a title! For all 3 of the events they'll hold. /sarcasm except for that last part......

Don't forget about the skill to tap while in said turtle position. That skill saves him from trying to win and from taking further strikes to his turtle shell.

I honestly feel like Frankie Edgar could beat Sap in a fight...

Sapp showed his huge progress in the ground.
Did you see that amazing technique he used to reverse a genious in the ground such as James Thompson? It was brilliant!!!
Did you see how he controlled James for about 10 seconds? and even more impressive, how he actually trapped Thompson's arm for about 5 seconds?
It shows that he has been training so hard in the ground game, as we all know, Thompson is a BJJ black belt. I hope Sapp competes in ADCC, he would do great!!

I actually think that even an amateur fighter has a good chance of beating him.

I hope you are being sarcastic. Sapp would utterly butt rape Edgar.

Or Frankie could try to land one punch and hope this happens:

I have to disagree. Maybe in a small room, but other than that, no. Frankie would see Sapp's punches coming before he started to throw them. All he would have to do is fight cautiously for a few minutes and Sapp would start to gas.

Me and one of my friends couldn't stop laughing our asses off at that one night. It's just hilarious seeing a huge black dude start bawling (especially when he's very muscular and is always making mean faces at the camera)when he gets hit by a smaller guy with what was seemingly not a very hard punch...

That wouldn't be enough. This isn't Mike Tyson's Punchout.
Still Edgar would have to try to get in to do damage to Sapp.

Basically I got Edgar getting smother fucked before getting knocked unconcious. There is a reason for weightclasses.
