Tank

I just got the April edition of Grappling Magazine, and Tank is on the cover. Hopefully after I read it tonight I will have an answer to your question. Tank has also been featured on pay per view for the month of March in the Best of the UFC specials.

HAHA Tank Abbot is a joke, just a fat drunk guy!

Personly i think TANK is a Great Fighter.
Here is a Guy Who at any given moment is ready
to RIP off a Head & **** down a Throat.

Alot of his comments about Martial Artist
i do not agree with//////
But as a Fighter i think he is Great.

Shoot if he Ever decided to take MA seriously
Look out he would be 100 Times Better than he is.

His Loss to Mir was do to a Lack of Submisson Escapes.

Frank Showed Great Technique & proved to be the Smarter
Fighter That night=-).


From The Bar Stool to the Octogan
Tank is a Fighter Who will always have a Place in The
UFC.
 
tank abbott is the only REAL fighter the UFC has seen, today the UFC and Pride are little more than submission wrestling matches..
with rules that benefit the grapplers i dont blame tank if he never enters the octagon again..

Lets see some of these octagon dickheads fight outside a bar, where the environment is totally different lets see them shoot then, also lets see these vale tudo, BJJ, submission wrestling take on someon with a knife, or broken bottles, NO WAY......

tank deserves more respect than he has been given,
BJJ, and other competition based arts deserve less respect than what they have been given (they are great for competition, but not for real fighting)

You can see the rules on ufc.tv which ones do you feal give an advantage to "BBJ etc." vs "real fighters?"
 
Tank is a badass no joke.
He is cool and brought a sense of street fight back to the ring during the first ufcs.
Tank is a good fighter and i respect him.

Fine, but which ones? I know they've tried to tone the rules down a bit, to prevent any more dismemberments and permanent maiming, but even then, it's still UFC, and they still beat the tar out of each other in there. Tank's just a big... well, TANK. He barrels in there and decks the other guy. That's what he does. He sometimes just runs into someone who'll duck his punches and make him pay for swinging at him. Simple as that.

Not True Since if U don't Throw enough
Strikes While on the Ground The ref will restart u
Back in The Standing Position.
 
to ace are you reading the same set of rules or is your head out of whack....

LOOK AT THE FOULS CONCERNING STRIKING THIS TRULY DISADVANTAGES A PURE STRIKER..... like it or not.....look at the rules it makes no difference if they get made to stand up because they are still not allowed to throw alot of thier strikes

Watch The Fights They show all.
Also in NHB there is no such thing as a Pure Striker.
Those Who Who showed up in the Early Days'
Were Taped & sent Back to The Dressing Room Early.

i mean pure strikers now know the ground game,

They are no longer Pure if They Spent The Time To Learn The ground Game. It's MMA Grappling,Striking & SUBMISSONS
Are What the Game is all about.

Crocop has a Good Ground Game as dose Silva.
They are Smart enough to Realise They need the Ground
Game to compete Sucsesfully.

And again I think Silva is a great fighter.
 
Ya the UFC is alot more striker friendly then Pride. First of all if you catch a guy decent and he goes down the fight is pretty much over. In Pride sometimes you have to pretty much kill the guy and the ref still doesn't look like he want's to get in there. Not only that the short rounds and constant standups definitly make it a striking game. If Cro Crop fought in the UFC he would probably be champ in two fights. Taking away headbutts hurt Mark Coleman far more then any striker.
