The Japanese love to close out each year with a bang. 2008 is no different with "Mr. Natural" Bob Sapp "fighting" a pro wrestler and Cro Cop battling 7-foot-3 Hong Man Choi. The card actually features several good fights (preview later in the day). The event is not on U.S. television. Some internet company was set to charge $29.95 tomorrow morning for live stream of the event. No dice on that now. If you can find another feed on the web, the event begins at 3 a.m. ET.

Sapp (pictured on the left) is the marketing cash cow who goes 6-foot-4, 365 lbs but also goes about 45 seconds before he's exhausted. It's clear he doesn't really train and maybe some of the "supplements" he takes hurt his cause as well. We're not even sure if this fight against something with a mask called Kinniko Manturo is real.

Former Pride and UFC great Cro Cop does have a real fight against 7-footer Hong Man Choi. Are the Japanese trying to get all of Choi's ribs broken? Choi, who just took a beating from Ray Sefo last month and Badr Hari the month before, will no doubt be kicked into submission again tonight. Cro Cop (pictured on the right) practiced his head kicks with Franjo Arapovic, a 7-footer who was a member of the Croatian Olympic basketball team in 1988 and 1992.

Fighter/adult video star Hayato Sakurai makes an appearance tonight against Katsuyori Shibata.
