Sapp: I've been working on my ground skills

by Ben Cartlidge | source:

You’re a renowned striker with 2 victories over K-1 Legend Ernesto Hoost to list just 2 fights from your kickboxing record, I’m going to assume you’re going to be looking to knock out James Thompson?

Yes of course. I always look for a KO.

As well as your K-1 skills you’re more than capable on the ground, that fight with Big Nog was an epic battle, how hard have you been working on your ground skills in the lead up to this fight?

I’ve been working on my ground skills. Putting in there upwards of 3 to 6 hours a day dedicated to training. And of course part of it is groundwork, and being that I am a striker, ground work for me is more for positioning and striking on the ground.

IMHO, due to the intimidation factor he had. At that time he had that aura of invincibility. Once that aura was exposed it was a different ballgame for him.

I respect him as a person, that doesn't mean I have to respect him as a fighter. He's more of an entertainer anyways.

Despite Forrest's unintellligible neuro-spasms, the idea that BS (pun intended) should be respected as a "fighter" is beyond ludicrous

If that happens I'll give you $10,000.

Basically what Sapp is saying is this will be his first fight in years that the out come was not pre determined and he plans on actually attempting to win the fight.

stop making sense please maybe people will soon one day realize that being black and buff doesnt make you powerful or gives you some kind of amazing feat another fighter doesnt have. This remind me of the Guilard hype but Guilard is just built and gets consistantly outwrestled by wrestlers.
