    what organization did he fight in against the Turk? I'm sure Bobb takes US currency in his contracts. I seriously doubt Turks would pay Bobb 30k USD. The venue from the video shows about 1000 people attendance? Let's assume Turks are charging 10 dollars per ticket. 10K doesn't even cover his purse.

    I have no idea. The information I stated is from an interview that I read a couple of years ago. Maybe the numbers are different now.

    It's either Bobb needs the money. Who knows about his taxes for both American and foreign soil. Like Pacquiao, whenever he fights, rumours has it that he only takes 20% of his real purse. It's also a big theory why Al Haymon is helping Pacquiao now since Mayweather for years insinuated his tax debts to the USA and how much his promoters and coaches were taking... interesting times we're in.

    Or, it could be that the Turks paid Bob 20,000 USD. I could be wrong, maybe the venue held 5000 people attendance. The thumbnail shows more seating. I doubt the Turks would've even agreed to MMA gloves. Seems like a classic K1 style match. In theory the dive doesn't reflect his MMA record.

    Bobb Sapp is an OG. Told Tyson straight out to fight him, and I'm more than sure that version of Sapp would've used every arsenal of his MMA IQ... not saying he could've beat Tyson in MMA, but Sapp would have some leg variance that could've worried Tyson. Tyson strictly said only boxing rules. ''Sign the contract.'' He then tells Mike, ''I'll sign it with your blood.'' Quite possibly all staged of course to boost that MMA organizations branding and payed Tyson to do so...perhaps...

    I can't understand why promoters are still forking out money for this guy to fight, no one has cared about his fights for a long time.

    Sure you can make a case like that but I wouldn't say "not even remotely surprising".
