Bobby Lashley Destroys Bob Sapp June 28, 2009Posted by skribbel24 in WWE.
Ultimate Chaos, a strange MMA event built around the massive main event of Bobby Lashley vs. Bob Sapp, turned out to be a fairly dull show that culminated with Lashley destroying Sapp with an easy first-round TKO.
Lashley, the former WWE star, and Sapp, the former Japanese kickboxing star, made for something of a freak show, and neither fighter looked particularly impressive. But Lashley was certainly the better fighter in the cage Saturday night.
Lashley immediately took Sapp to the ground, where he could use his amateur wrestling skills, while Sapp did nothing to stop him. Lashley just pounded Sapp on the head until the referee stopped it a couple minutes into the first round, and the crowd showered Sapp with boos afterward.
“I knew I had to take him down, cover him, keep him flat and pound him,” Lashley said after the fight. “Go in there, ground and pound, get a quick win and get out of there.”
Lashley, who improved his pro MMA record to 4-0, is a well-known fighter because of his World Wrestling Entertainment background. But in his fifth fight, he needs to find better opposition. Sapp just didn’t look motivated to fight.
“No excuses,” Sapp said. “He got me down, he controlled it, let’s give it up to Bobby Lashley.”
