Cabbage Corriera haf fought a lot of UFC fights, he is known for being almost impossible to put away- he has a chin like concrete. Tim Sylvia used his head like a heavy bag when they fought but He just wouldnt drop, the ref had to jump in to save his body from his willpower.
He has fast powerful hands, and beat Tank in their match at UFC that ended very acrimoniously, nearly carrying on as a regular fist fight after the fight was stopped. He has a lot of fans as his ability to take and give explosive shots makes him an exciting prospect for spectators.

Tank was all lined up to fight in the UK at the latest Cage Rage last month, but his oponent pulled out with an injury requiring surgery.

Tank is definately one of the most exciting and fun people to watch fight. (Unless he's lying on the ground getting choked out ) I belive he's the only guy to try to throw another guy over the Octagon. His knockouts are especially vicious and devastating. But the best thing about Tank is his attitude. He just doesn't respect anyone and just play loves to fight. When asked after a loss what he planned on doing he something like I'm going out, having a few beers and get in a few more fights. It's the badass that made him a fan favorite. It's the losses by submissions that sucked.

that's exactly what makes tank so NOT fun to watch.

as far as tank i never really got to see him fight alot unless it was him getting knocked out by vitor belfort

"Tank" is a perfect example/lesson for anyones training.

Makes 2 points REALLY well.

1-Just how dangerous a large, strong, highly aggressive guy can be, even to OTHER large, strong, highly aggressive people.

2-Better training counts big.

One a funny note.

My one student at my home dojo looks very much like tank without the belly. He has tats and shows up at the house on his Harley...

He is the building engineer at our church and as nice a guy as you could ever find.

I heard that fighting tournaments were the only contests he ever won that didn't include eating pie.

I never jumped on the tank bandwagon. I dont like him. He's a sloppy overweight guy with minimal hand skills. If the fight lasts longer than the second round he loses every time.

Tank has never been in a second round. Check your facts.
