I am willing to host Shamrock/Tank, I have a rather small backyard which may hurt ticket sales but I have a large BBQ and and a couple big coolers for beer.

It's easy to forget -- and probably hard to believe, if this was the first time you've seen him -- that in the early days of Tank's career, he was a beast. He was a scary, scary guy.

He was a tough test even for some of the top men in the sport, despite having very little training aside from a little boxing and wrestling. He hit like a truck and he was fearless.

Unfortunately, that fearlessness was coupled with arrogance he refused to adapt as the sport changed around him, so his window of success closed very quickly. But unlike many of his contemporaries who decided to call it quits and go back to work, he kept at it, so now we have fights like this.

Guess I can't blame a guy for getting paid, but damn...

And yes, it is even worse than you could have imagined. First of all the fight ended up taking place in some dude's back yard while a BBQ was going on? Second of all, Ferrozzo spends most of the fight lying on his stomach with Tank on top of him. Tank delivers little shots and Ferrozzo comments on each of the with one of the following outbursts "No" "F*** no" "WHOOOO!" or some other jibberish...

They both come off as low rent Kimbo's - and no, that is not a good thing :P
I saw on wikipedia the location was literally "Some Guy's Back yard" I figured it was wiki trolls.. Its not some guys back.. it was some guys back yard

( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Abbott )

I feel kinda bad about it. Tank and Scott were kinda original fighters in the ufc.. Reduced to illegal fights in some dudes back yard as two old and fat guys, I feel almost sad for them.

I watched his very first fight on live PPV against John Matua...ended up getting koed out and had a seizure...Matua that is.

Tank was truly the first STREET FIGHTER to join the ranks of the UFC. Unfortunately his lack of discipline and conditioning cost him a lot of key fights; Don Frye, Oleg Taktarov, among others. He had a great fight against Scott back then. Guess what VITOR "THE PHENOM" BELFORT tore through both of them. MAN...if you saw Vitor back then you would know why he's considered a young legend. He was one BAD BOY wrecking shop til damn Randy Couture came out of nowhere and stifled em with his clinch game.

Ah...the good old days of UFC.

Yeah, but among street brawlers tank was pretty talented. But as you said his lack of discipline cost him. If he had buckled down he could've truely been a legend rather then a pioneer.
