    Tank Sounds Off On Women, Rousey etc.

    I admit I used to be a fan of Tank Abbot, back in the day.
    But he really is quite a jerk, and I don't think he recognizes his own limitations.

    He's a very strong guy. He use to have a 600lb + bench and a little bit of boxing. Thinking and speaking were never his strong suit.

    Didn't Tank's record turn to **** around the same time they started using weight classes?

    Holy overreaction, Batman!

    The guy is a has been who was never that good in the first place. He makes some random troll comments on the internet and white knights trip all over themselves running to save the day. People are so fucking predictable.

    I'd say he was a good, early boxer-wrestler. Despite being known mostly for his heavy handed brawling style, most of his victories came via wrestling (He was a junior college All American who was once slated to compete at a D1 level before a car accident cut his career short).

    Thinking and speaking were never his strong suit.
    Au contraire. Tank was probably the most Streetismatic guy MMA had back in the day.





    Plus, he was the first person to realize that Dan Severn was a sexual predator:

    "I just dreamed that I was getting raped by Freddy Mercury."

    Didn't Tank's record turn to **** around the same time they started using weight classes?
    He always fought big guys. His record took a nosedive in 2003 when he returned after a five year hiatus. By that point he was in his late thirties and was left completely in the dust by the evolving game. Pre-1998, though, and he could still challenge top tier heavyweights like Pedro Rizzo and Maurice Smith (Vitor Belfort being a big exception).

    Tank's just upset his old UFC opponent is more Street than he is, with a rap sheet to prove it.
