Bob Sapp will make another mixed martial arts debut of sorts when he takes on cage announcing duties for South Korean promotion Road Fighting Championship.
The organization Wednesday revealed that Sapp will make his debut as a cage announcer during Road FC 19 on Nov. 9 at Seoul Olympic Hall.
The card’s main event features a middleweight contest pitting Riki Fukuda against Dool Hee Lee. In the co-main event, Dong Sik Yoon will face Amilcar Alves, who fills in for Luis Ramos because of injury.
Sapp rose to prominence in the MMA world due to his enormous size, and impressive 9-2 record to open his professional career. “The Beast” has been around the block, fighting for promotions such as Pride Fighting Championships, K-1, Strikeforce, Dream and One Fighting Championship.
However, Sapp won only once in his final 16 fights, losing 15 by either technical knockout or submission. The 41-year-old officially retired in May 2014, leaving an overall record of 11-18.
