Bob Sapp Falls to Peter Aerts

Bob Sapp, the one-time scrub NFL offensive lineman who became a famous kickboxer in Japan, had his first fight since 2005 over the weekend. It was against Peter Aerts, one of the best kickboxers in history, and it didn't go well:

In case you can't figure it out from the video, Sapp charged Aerts immediately at the opening bell, and the referee split them up because this was kickboxing, which doesn't allow any wrestling moves (as opposed to mixed martial arts, which incorporates wrestling). Then Sapp charged Aerts again, Aerts landed a kick, and Sapp fell to the ground and couldn't go on. The whole fight lasted less than 30 seconds. It may be time for Sapp to find a new profession.
