There were a lot of rumors this weekend about a possible return of Fedor Emelianenko precipitate by rumors about Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC. Of course they were too good to be true, because it is Fedor and him showing up in the UFC was always a pipe dream, but, that doesn’t mean that Fedor is out of the limelight altogether. Oh no. A few years ago if you were to measure the pulses of Japanese fans a big fight would have been Bob Sapp vs. Fedor Emelianenko. Why? Because Bob Sapp was for a time one of the biggest stars in Japan who was able to muscle his way through the elite of Kickboxing and MMA while looking fairly competent.
In 2013 Bob Sapp might not be legitimate at anything combat sports related, but when it comes to arm wrestling he is still a very strong guy. How strong? Well, he was matched up with the legendary Fedor Emelianeko and watch what happened.
