Bob Sapp: K-1, DREAM are 'extremely broke'

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

 "The No. 1 problem is that K-1 is extremely broke" said Bobb Sapp. "So is DREAM. They're paying some fighters as early as in six months, and the other fighters, they're just stiffing."

Sapp also said current reports are just the tip of the iceberg in tallying fighters who haven't been paid. He claims the promotion no longer occupies a formal office and has taken residence in the office of one of its advertising companies.

While Sapp has written off the purse he was supposed to receive (at the NYE DREAM Dynamite!! 2010), he said he wanted to speak out because he feels he has been unfairly blamed for the no-show.

"(Tanikawa said), 'Bob walked out because his fighting spirit wasn't good,'" Sapp said. "And I'm just like, 'You know what? I'm done with all the talk about me. I'm done with them stiffing the fighters. I'm just done with it. I've seen too much. Start paying people to show up.'"

Well, at least this time, they didn't threaten Sapp's life, and he didn't have to sneak out of the country, terrified for his life.

Funny how I remember most of the assholes and Japanophiles in here were shitting all over Bob Sapp that night for not fighting and were buying into the FEG propaganda......"he lost his fighting spirit, blah-blah-blah". Lmfao, Bob Sapp never had any "fighting spirit". He fights for money. Which is perfectly fine. A couple people pointed out that he probably wanted to be paid upfront so he didn't turn into another Gary Goodridge begging the ug for help, and he didn't want to risk fighting for free so he bailed. FEG = no budo, and no $$$
