I can't remember where it was that I read it, but the UFC brass at that time was not impressed with his reason for pulling out of UFC 6. He then went on a bad losing streak which basically doomed his career.

Wow, never heard about that one.

Here is a quote from Art Davie in a recent interview:

Davie: I think Tank's guys followed a tone and a path that Tank set, in the sense they wanted to be like Tank. If they thought Tank would want them to do it, then they would do it. They were the ones who jumped Pat Smith in the elevator [at UFC 6 in 1995, after Smith had exchanged words with the group]. Then Tank came along and finished him off.

But just google "pat smith elevator tank fight" and you will find out much more about it

Tank has knocked out Cabbage!

Stomach issues. Bad cramps and diarrhea plagued him. Probably nerves.
