Bob Sapp's fight against Soa Palelei at Impact FC's PPV event this week has been cancelled after the promotion told him that the cost of a plane ticket from Europe (where Sapp's filming a movie) to Australia was too expensive. Sapp explains to MMA Junkie: "...Sapp wasn't shocked by the last-minute cancellation and speculated the promotion's ambitious schedule might be at fault. In the past, he required promoters to put his fight purses in an escrow account before he signed on the dotted line. This time, he didn't. "That's why they used the loophole, and that's why they jumped," Sapp said. The 6-foot-5, 350-pound fighter said he had assembled a training camp in Bulgaria to prepare for the bout and spent at least $10,000 on coaches, training partners, and living expenses. The heavyweight said his team plans to draft a formal letter to the promotion asking for reimbursement of his expenses. If that fails, he may take legal action. "I'm not going to allow anybody to screw me over," Sapp said.

Mark Hunt (5-6 MMA) reflects on the missteps he's made in his career, and his upcoming UFC debut in September, in an interview with Jordan Breen: "If I'd trained as hard as some of the guys out here, I probably wouldn't be sitting here right now," Hunt laments. "I'd be at a different level of fighting. "I just used up my time. I squandered it," he shrugs. "I never had to make weight before. I never gave a damn what I ate. I've already stopped eating KFC, chocolate, that stuff," Hunt says. "I've got a personal trainer, never had one of them before. I'm not a big person, I'm only 5-foot-10 or something." "It's been two or three years of bad training for me. Not my training partners, but how hard I trained," Hunt confesses. "I'm looking to go overseas to train for the first time, to really get some good training partners. If I do things like I should do them, it shouldn't matter who I'm facing, ever." "It is what it is now. I wish I could change the way I did things now, but I'm here for a reason," says Hunt. "For me now, I know this is my last chance. I won a K-1 world title, then I fought MMA. I wanted to win, but I didn't have that drive to be a champion. I feel like now, I really want to be an MMA champion." UFC 119 coverage (vs. Sean McCorkle)
