Tank Abbot. LMAO

I bet that even that little bug Kyra Gracie could beat him at MMA.

I doubt Hughes is pressing more that twice his body weight.
At my peak I put up 305 at 175, with the impression that I could have done more. That was in my sophomore year of college a few years back. As much as I busted my ass off as I don't have naturally good chest genetics, I'm sure Hughes can do more given his age and conditioning.

Also, Tank was around 300 lbs., not 250 if memory serves me right.

Is this about Tank Abbott?

...Tank was a beast in his time. His skills were minimal, but his punches were to the max! I enjoyed some of his vicious knockouts. His UFC debut against John Matua will forever be a classic. As far as Tank being strong? Was John Holmes hung?....lol!

Tank is B.S.. He has no skills and the only reason he won was because back then, people didn't train to take a man to the ground as much. If guys had, they would dive in, get him on the ground and break his G.D. arm. The reason why he fell out was because he, once people actually started diversifying their fighting, couldn't keep up. I saw Tank get hit by what must have been a 175 pound guy, and fall over, because that guy actually knew how to fight.

...Shadowslan...great point about Tank not handeling the diversity of the new fighters. That is very true. Good example was when Tank fought Victor Belfort back in the 90's. Tank got smoked. Completely overwhelmed by a superior fighter. I think for me that signified the end of the non-technique brawling area.

P.S....Tank did have some really cool vicious KO's!

I doubt it was because he "knew how to fight" more of a good/lucky punch

I bet Hughes is a lot stronger than that. I would guess he is close to 360-380 on the bench and probably reps out 8-10 with 280 imo...
