Default Tell me about Tank Abbott

An acquaintance of mine is from Huntington Beach. When I saw him your yesterday he would not shut up about this guy. He said tank would beat Shamrock. Tell me would that ever have been likely? What's the dude's fighting style?? Why didn't he make it big like Shamrock, or Coture, or Maurice Smith???

Very fan friendly style.

Basically came forward, swinging punches or looking to take you down for GnP.

Had a good dig on him and enjoyed a tear up.

Shamrock would have kicked his arse.

He was basically the exact thing the UFC needed to get away from in order to make it to a semi-mainstream, and respected sport.

He was a brawler, plain and simple. The last guy you want to fight in a bar.....well second to last, obviously the video above proves Vitor may have been the last guy you want to fight in a bar.

I never liked Tank Abbott. Thought he came off as an asshole and douche.

Bar room brawler and known homo***ual. Once tried to give Frank Shamrock a blowjob. No technique but strong as an ox, could bench press like 600 lbs literally.

Tank was much better as a fighter than loser, Scott Gilfoid, is as a poster. Gilfoid watches mma and thinks of ***.

Hang with him for 5 minutes and he would be putty. gassed early. powerful punches though. fat, red neck and an obnoxious guy. Interesting fight with Scott Ferazzo (SP) in the early years. Tank was the typical bully, scared if someone could fight him back etc.
