Tank is STRONG!!!

I thought I'd throw the video on here, just for anyone who hasn't seen it.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=ks0Aaa4-l...s%20benchpress

Some people say that he bounces the weight off of his chest as he goes back up, but I don't see that... and who the hell can bounce 600 pounds off of their chest?

YEah he is a beast but always gassed to early. He could have been a lot better.

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

there might of been a slight bounce but no one lifitng that much could avoid it it is still a lift and very very impressive.

I don't care how fat Tank is, if he couldn't lift that 600 lbs. it would've crushed his fat chest.

His first mixed martial arts match against Mutua or whatever was awesome because he beat him up so bad it wasn't funny. Tank in his early days in UFC were great and his only loss was practically to Belfort who was dominant at that time. Then he became so good this wrestling organzation brought him to their business which was bull. Then when he returned to UFC he was never the same and lost four straight matches including that domination delivered by Kimo.

What looks like fat is actually solid.

Tank is 250 benching 600.

Matt Hughes is 170-180 benching ??? My guess would be around 280-310, maybe 320. I don't know.

I doubt Hughes is pressing more that twice his body weight.
