    I was shocked to discover this video. I'm quite sure I saw the original event, but have no memory of this!

    Can't blame you for forgetting that one. It came and went. That was his first round opponent in the OWGP. Mirko smashed Minowa at the same event.

    And here's the legendary bout with Fedor:



    I showed one of my friends this fight when he was drunk and he was horrified that someone tried to kill Fat Albert.

    Weird as it sounds, people were a little scared of Zuluzinho until Fedor dispatched him. He was a massive dude that knocked out just about everyone against him other than the time he fell out of the ring. Then people realized he wasn't as durable as he seemed, tapping to Fedor's strikes and Nog's armbar, and then I think Butterbean too actually.

    For some reason this fight isn't on Wikipedia for Big Nog.

    Same. Given how MMA has evolved, I want to see MWs and WWs versus giants like Sumo wrestlers and Bob Sapp types.

    Imagine Bisping vs a modern Sapp. Would be nuts.
