I just wanted to let you all know what a great man Bob Sapp is. Today he accepted a fight with a promoter and in his stipulations he included that they must pay Gary Goodridge $500 to help with brain injury. This should not go unnoticed and should be commended. Thanks Bob, your heart and your memory is as big as you are. please no fighter bashing. For those who don't know Bob, he is a great man. Going to pick up money from the post office right now.

Best of luck to both of you. True heroes of the sport. Also just good people. And Gary I've watched you for many many years. Thank you for all that you have given for our enjoyment. I really wish you the best. I'm sure I speak for many here too.

Just because Bob Sapp doesn't "play the game" doesn't detract from his humanity.Bob has decided he is not willing to risk any unnecessary damage in a job with no security and no health plan. That's his choice. Extrapolate on this and you basically are saying its "unfair" to tap to strikes ever.While I wish Bob would give it another fair go and head out there trying to win rather than just doing it for the pay day you can't fault his kindness.The fact that he's earning more than a large portion of fighters in the UFC should tell you how messed up the pay scale in the UFC is. It says nothing about Bob.

That's very nice, but it's sort of like robbing a bank and donating 500 of it to charity.

For an unskilled guy he has some big victories especially in k1. Beating Hoost 2x is just incredable. Even in mma he was a tough out for the first 5 minuets. People don't remember but Fedor refused to fight him, and he gave Nog a good fight. Nice to see he a good guy to.

No he's completely right. You wouldn't complain he wasn't giving money to Goodridge, you only complained *because* he gave money to Gary and you think it's not enough. That's retarded, he had no impetus to do so, besides the kndness of his heart, and we wouldn't even know about it if Gary didn't wan't to bring it up. So to all the people bitching, your fucking whining about Sapp giving away 500 for no PR reasons and a very simple motive of helping someone. Better than nothing and def better than what most would give

I'm really happy to hear that from you, seeing as you'd have no motive to lie or even exaggerate. Really cool that he's an even keeled guy and wants to help you simply for the sake of doing so.

Wow, this is sick. Regardless of what your opinion on the guy is, no point bringing it up, this is a beautiful gesture. Much respect
