I agree with you for the most part, except where you say he never uses strength in a fight. I remember distinctly watching two of his fights where he showed freakish strength.

The first was against Steve Nelmark, whom had Tank in a guillotine choke, picked Nelmark up and dropped him on his shoulder from above Tank's head.

The second time was against someone... the name escapes me, but Tank lifted the guy up over his head and tried throwing him over the octagon fence.. it was wild sh*t!

Other than that though, the man really didn't do anything unbelievable in his career. Just some freakish KOs and a lot of times where he himself got KTFO.

Tank, like shamrock should go back to the WWE if he wants to conyinue to fight, because at least at the WWE they can write an occassional win for tank into the script. Then again, maybe he wouldn't be able to win a fight in the WWE either. Retire Tank, and save whatever respect and dignity you have left. Don't wait til the only memories people have of you is that of an old burned out drunk getting his butt kicked .... he was much better when people remembered you as the old burned out drunk doing the butt kicking.

Tank isn't that great anymore but you have to have some serious balls to be outdated like tank and step in the ring with top of the line competition. Plus he is such a character. Did anyone see him open the beer after he got kncked out this weekend??

I started to watch the fight on Sky sports- Abbott hit his opponent full on with repeated shots couldnt knock him out, the fight was crap so i turned over as i was embarrassed that someone like Abbott would fly over on 48hrs notice after he said he was out drinking/partying.
After that display i feel a lot of British fans lost a bit of respect for the man. I could find out more ..

Tank should definately retire....for his own good. He's got my respect though....comeing into a fight with only 48 hrs notice is sheer balls+heart. He's a legend in his own rite. Kind of remind's me of a factory worker!
