Sapp loses 12th straight fight
Bob Sapp added another loss to his record, and it was a quick one — again.
Sapp’s most recent defeat — his 12th in a row — happened on Thursday in Fortaleza, Brazil, when he fought long-time MMA veteran Edson “Conterraneo” Franca. Sapp rushed into Franca as soon as the fight started, but “Conterraneo” immediately took him down, got to his back and started the punishment, forcing the 38-year-old Sapp to tap just 35 seconds into the fight with a rear-naked choke.
“Nobody scares me, I can destroy everyone,” the Brazilian Franca said after his 18th win in 25 MMA fights. “I’m getting old. I guess it’s time to get me in the UFC.”
