Event: Pride Shockwave 8/28/2002
Winning Move: Armbar
At one point in time Bob Sapp was all the rage in Japan. He went from being a failed NFL lineman in the States to a household name overseas. Perhaps you've heard his CD, It's Sapp Time? #notsomuch
Antonio "Minotauro" Nogueira, the best heavyweight practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), was always up to fight big men, in part to prove the basic concept of BJJ: technique beats size.
At Pride Shockwave, Sapp learned this the hard way. His fists won the battle but his left elbow lost the war.
