    UFC should approach cross-over fights as the iconic Bob Sapp did in 2004. He fought the ultimate can Jerome Le Banner in a 4 round hybrid match. Rounds 1,3 were kickboxing, rounds 2,4 mma with glove changes every round to accommodate the competing sport. The match ended in a draw.

    UFC clearly loves the idea of cross over matches as does boxers do. Let them do it like this. Its funny as hell.



    This is a troll thread obviously to bring up some interesting history of insane matches in japan, stop taking yourself seriously. calm down and relax, it's a good day

    He's always practiced 2 sports at once. MMA and WWE.

    Jones has done it. MMA and drug racing.
    Edit: drag racing.

    Sapp decided he would rather throw fights and get paid. Why not? The asians love the fucking guy.

    JLB is a GOAT.


    AOKI fought in a similarly ruled fight. He stalled the KICKBOXING portion of the fight and got KO'D IN THE GRAPPLING, LOL

    I remember Shinya Aoki vs the cross dresser guy, same rules I think. I believe Aoki back pedaled the whole kick boxing round, and in the MMA round immediately telegraphed a takedown and ate a knee to the face.

    I hope the troll thing is when you say "the ultimate can" because he was an uncrown champ with a fantastic K1 resume and who did far more than the ignorant you are ...
