From Croatia to India to Poland to Australia, disgraced mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter (and I use the term lightly), Bob Sapp continued his "tour of shame" when he took on Tolegen Akybekov in Astana, Kazakhstan, at Bushido Lithuania 51 this past Friday (June 8, 2012).

And once again, he lost without putting up much of a fight, bringing his record to a lowly 11-14-1 with eight straight defeats ... all in the very first round. However, unlike his previous two contests, this fight actually made it past the opening minute.

He may not be racking up the wins, but his frequent flyer miles should be sky high by now.

Sapp recently stated that he isn't throwing fights, he is simply protecting his health, and small paychecks are not worth the bodily damage he can potentially receive. He also went on to say that he is getting paid fairly well for a few minutes of his time, $30,000 to $40,000 to be exact.

For those of you keeping track, "The Beast" already has another fight lined up as he is scheduled take on Kim Jong Dae in South Korea at Road FC 8: "Bitter Rivals" on June 16, 2012, a mere eight days removed from his most recent embarrassment performance.

The question still remains; Is Sapp that much of an overseas draw that promoters can continue to pay him a good amount of coin to appear at their events?

The answer, apparently and unfortunately is, "Yes!"
