I wish I could tell you this was a belated April Fool's Day joke, but apparently there is some truth to the report that Bob Sapp will fly to Poland to fight Mariusz Pudzianowski in the main event of KSW 19 on May 12 at the Atlas Stadium in Lodz.
MMA Fighting was the bearer of bad news earlier today.
Sapp (11-11) followed up his dive at Vuisten Van Vuur by succumbing to James Thompson at the Super Fight League event last month in India. "The Beast" was apparently felled by injury before tapping to "Colossus," but nothing serious enough to keep him from collecting his next appearance fee.
That comes at the expense of Pudzianowski (3-2), the Polish strongman who like Sapp, is coming off a bizarre loss to Thompson. After the hulking Brit finished him via arm-triangle choke last May, their November rematch resulted in a scoring error that was eventually overturned and marked as a "no contest."
Following his "fight" on May 12, Sapp will reportedly travel to Sydney to face off against Australian "Hulk" Soa Palelei on May 18 under the CFC banner. Bobby is as busy as a beaver.
