Tank Abbott = Best Fighter

This man went to the ufc and fought with NO RULES. He just came to fight and wanted nothing more than to throw down and do battle. I think mma and the ufc has changed because of the rules, it is a lot more of a sport now. Tank is a real fighter people, like it or not. He didn't even care about the money and would fight people on short notice many times. He fought Vitor Belfort maurice smith and many other good fighters when he wasn't even 70 percent of his real self.

Regardless of the rule set, there are a ton of guys that would have knocked him out without a whole lot of problem. Vitor would do it all over again, Cain, JDS, Chuck, etc. The guy was a brawler with a very limited skill set, even in the stiking department.

I know that but he is someone who you can say is not apart of the BS in this fight game. Vitor was all roided up in the beginning of his career, look at him now all saggy. Come on dude most people are on the juice, it's sad that it is but that's the reality here. Another reason why I can't wait for Diaz vs Penn, 2 warrior with great skills and no BS methods on why they perform great.

Yeah he fought everyone - and he lost - a lot...

Tank was perhaps the epitome of a one-dimensional fighter who was the face of the company for all the wrong reasons...

He was a redneck, a drunk, no technique, no dicipline - he was basically all the bad things about the sport back then

You do realize that his record in the UFC is 8-10 right? How does that make him the best fighter?
