    I say Bob Sapp fights Tim Sylvia. If Syliva wins, he can be considered for a Strikeforce/UFC fight. If Sapp wins, Sylvia is done and Sapp gets to fight for more exhibition fights in Japan.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 19 Thumb down 19

    Tim Silvia vs. Bob Sapp equals a bathroom break. Its a fight that will suck ass between a used to be and a never was. If Silvia wins well he was supposed to and if Sapp wins which is slim to none chance then Silvia needs to go back to his ranch and shoot bambi but never try to fight again. I’m guessing Silvia will be over 300lbs again and think his chances of ever being back under the HW limit is gone which means no more strikeforce or UFC.

    not for nothing but Bob Sapp is just a punching bag. I’d fight him and I’m only 205.
    BUT that being said I love my Japan Fight Cards

    Bob Sapp is fighting a celebrity on NYE kinda like last year, and Sylvia is supposed to be fighting either Alistair Overeem or Hong Man Choi according to his manager Monte Cox.
    Not really sure why everyone is talking about Sapp/Sylvia?

    I’ve also seen rumors of Nick Diaz vs Hayato Sakurai, but nothing official.

    I love when Kid Yamamoto fights. They always show his wife more than they show him. I would do unspeakable, terrible, diabolical sexual things to her.

    Well, it’s a Japanese card, and they love the odd-ball match-ups. In that spirit, I’d like to see Choi vs. 3 or 4 “little people” wrestlers. Now that would be a spectacle.

    I need Choi FTW for my Fantasy Pool Team.(okay,so I have fantasies about Choi…you think yer better than me?)
    I heard the Choi vs. Silvia rumour and am praying for it.
    Also,there’s was an Alvarez vs Aoki rumour,but I guess that ain’t happening.
    Either way,I always love the spectacle freakshow that is Dynamite.
