Bob Sapp accused of domestic violence by longtime girlfriend

Bob Sapp is a legend in the sports of mixed martial arts and kickboxing.  “The Beast” has competed internationally for Pride FC, K-1, Road FC, DREAM, RIZIN, and other promotions.

Now the heavyweight fighter who is scheduled to compete in a sumo match against Yokozuna Asashoryu on New Years Eve, is being accused of domestic violence. Sapp is also supposed to take part in a strange test of strength fight against a bear at Kyokugen 2017. No word yet as to if either matchup will go on as planned.

Japanese news site Shukan Bunshun reports that Sapp’s longtime girlfriend, who wishes to remain anonymous, has come forth stating she was assaulted by him in March of 2016.

The couple have been together since 2011 and the alleged victim just recently released the below photos said to be evidence of the alleged abuse. Below that is a screenshot of a Facebook apology message that Sapp allegedly sent following the incident.
