Rolles Gracie finishes Bob Sapp in opening round at ONE FC 2

When the last name “Gracie” is mentioned in conjunction with a win it’s expected to have involved some form of submission given the clan’s storied history of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. However, at ONE FC 2: Battle of Heroes, Rolles Gracie tapped out Bob Sapp less than 90 seconds into their fight without the aid of his family’s craft.

Gracie stopped Sapp with strikes in their match-up at the event to pick up his third straight win since falling to Joey Beltran at UFC 109. The performance improved his record to 6-1 with the entire lot coming by way of submission. Comparably the loss was Sapp’s fourth in a row and seventh in his last eight outings.

    Bob Sapp is a freak of nature, but he doesn’t have the heart or skill to fight with anyone who’s not immediately overwhelmed by his sheer size. Congrats to Rolles, maybe after another win or two the UFC will give him another shot.
