I used to like Tank Abbot, but as the sport progressed towards more structure people realized the guy was just tough enough to take a beating and keep throwing punches and elbows. He never had any real fighting skill. I'm not saying I would fight him, even now...but I know people 1/4 his size that would have him knocked out and broken in less than 30 seconds.

As for Brock, he's close to the same path...but, he is actually getting more skilled with each fight. That pink-haired kid got lucky as shit, plain and simple. I would have demanded a rematch with anger and fury if that was me, and then let the kid know his show was over.

Nowadays, I try to catch any fights with those I like to watch: Brock Lesnar, Liddel, Faber, Henderson*, GSP.. I put the * next to Henderson, because well..he just got KTFO off the fence.. still a good fighter, but not a good fight for him...

I agree with all of this... I most recently saw Tank fighting in a highlight reel from 'Strike Force' (Heffner's ritzy little cage fighting enterprise, for those who don't know it). Tank got messed up.
Maybe, if I was there, I would have punched him a good one while he was down.
Then run like hell.

I've dug up UFC 43 for tonight's viewing - not seen it before. Tank Abbott is on the card, but haven't gotten to his fight yet. And Liddell fights Couture too - also not seen it yet.

EDIT: Ho SHIT!!! Tank fights Kimo in this one!!! This better be good...
EDIT EDIT: Hahahahahaaaaaa so short. So simple. Suck it Tank.
