Bob Sapp tests his strength vs. a BEAR

Well, it looks like those fellows in Japan outdid themselves this past New Year's Eve as MMA fighter and kickboxer (as well as a popular figure in Japan), Bob Sapp, tested his strength against a bear. Yes, an actual, fully grown, real-life bear and it was a brown bear too no less which is much larger and stronger.

As we can see in the video below, Bob Sapp and his furry opponent are in a type of enclosure with a movable frame that they are pushing against. Not surprisingly, the brown bear proves to be much stronger than Sapp and it doesn't even look like it's even trying all that hard.

Surprisingly enough, many people aren't aware that brown bears are actually native to Japan and can be found in the northern Hokkaido region of the country.

Luckily, no one was hurt here in this one and at least this was a little more interesting than Sapp's recent 'fights' which have tended to end suspiciously in recent years.

It hasn't always been that way for Sapp, though, who at one point in time was a terrifying figure in both MMA and kickboxing. Those days are long gone, however, and this strange bout vs the bear is the most effort Sapp has put into a contest in years it seems, unfortunately.

Check out the video below to see how long Sapp lasts.
