• David V Goliath

    Whilst we are on the subject of big guys here is one of my favourite examples of technique conquering power. Bob Sapp is an ex NFL line-backer who moved to Japan to fight and is 6’5″ and 159kg! The Japanese love a freak show and this monster of a man fits the bill and fills a stadium with punters. Here he fights Rodrigo “Minotauro” Noguera (6’3″ 105kg) from the Brasilian Top Team in a Pride MMA fight back in August 2002. The fight is highlight clip but is a brilliant example of making the big guy gas and then taking your chance to submit him. Whilst Sapp never made major waves in MMA due to a lack of real skill he has still proven a handful just due to his sheer size and power. Must say though I thought he killed Minotauro with a pile driver early in the bout when I first saw this years ago.
