Rumour Mill

I've heard through the grape vine about a possible Tank Abbot comeback. sIs there any validity in this, or am I just on crack to think he's comming back??

Let's Bang!

Rumors circling about fighting Sean Gannon, but after his last fight I doubt they would bring The Cannon back lol......Tank should fight Ken-Sham and it should be both of their last matches

yea I still think a seaseon Vets division would be a great idea... Plus I think Ken should be able to take tank as long as he avoids tanks punches.. I wonder if tank ever bothered to get any real skills?

Tank was supposed to be fighting Amokrane "Kiane" Sabet at the last Cage Rage, but Kiane got injured and had to pull out. They're trying to reschedule the fight for September, I think.

Chuck Lidell has been giving some interviews for speciliazed magazines and says you're a complete fighter, but he'll knock you out. What do you have to say about that? Babalu - The only blow he'll give are three little ones on the floor.

I doubt it, they already brought him back once, he lost by submission to Kimo and Frank Mir, then TKOed by Cabbage, to bring him back would just have the same results. As much as I love to see Tank smash his fist into someone's face, I seriously doubt they will bring him back. He just doesnt have what it takes to compete in the big show anymore, he has been passed up.

What a terrible Rumor lol

Tanks carrier has become a joke.

To watch him fight is to watch me fight someone like matt hughes.

He isn't MMA he's street fight.

Every time i watch him he's getting his ass submited or getting TKO'd by someone.

Although i have said all this, i agree id like to see Shamrock vs Tank.
Just so Shamrock can retire after his lopsided win and makes his hall of fame look more legit.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

If they have Shamrock vs Tank story line, they will need to add more to it, loser retires, loser weds owners daughter, dies, comes back to life, fights and wins belt...


This is not wrestling, they should quit while ahead.
