My all-time favorite thing about Tank, though, is a statement he once made while being interviewed. I guess the interviewer had mentioned something about no one in Huntington Beach messing with Tank because he was so tough, and Tank replied by saying something like, "I'm not a bully, I'm the guy who beats up the bullies."

I thought that was a great thing to say, and Tank really earned my respect with that statement, although he'd already had my respect for being willing to get into the Octagon with some other pretty tough dudes.
Meh. Great thing to say, but I think Tank acted like a bully in the UFC several times.
