    Tank Abbot was basically like a heavyweight version of Krazy Horse.


    They would have been Amazing if they actually trained. But they never gave a fuk and still don't to this day.


    We did however have Igor Vovchancyn who was a crazy stone cold killer but actually trained. Mark Hunt as well.


    So bless the Just Bleed Gods for that.

    The only people who believe this is real are the ones that have never lifted.

    Watching bush league shit like mocking a stiffened opponent makes me cringe. Actually, it's beyond amateur - it's just being a brain-dead asshole.

    Lol I counted as well. 12 plates.
    It looks real, and form wouldn’t qualify at a powerlifting event, but who cares... 585 lbs.

    Ridiculous the strength that dude had.

    Nelson has actually decent boxing. Abbot had no skill he had only power. Nelson would easily beat Abbott he could either take him down or knock him out on the feet. he's beat Abbott within 3 minutes.

    Abott was a real physical talent though if he was in shape and with modern training he may have been a good fighter

    They owe the credit of todays gloves to him

    They werent required at that time and he was just protecting his fists when he smashes

    1 of my fav mma moments was very early on David Tank Abbot was asked by Jeff Blatnick to watch some replay and talk through it. Tank says that he better stop watching the replay cuz he was starting to get sexually aroused. The best line ever! War TANK 4eva !!!!!

    Holy fuck, I am older than prime Tank.

    Anyway, I love the old school guys, but Tank had a heart the size of a pea.

    How would u know what I've done or not. Im sure u were there, so pointless to have any opinion else than yours. Even when people who witnessed it first hand have verified it.

    Tank almost won the second Ultimate Ultimate too, which would've been insane. I think he came within a few seconds of finishing Don Frye with punches in the finals.
