I still LOL @ Tank calling Don "the Predator" Frye a "Freddie Mercury look-a-like."




I thought it was after losing to Dan Severn that he said he was having nightmares of being raped by Freddy Mercury.

Strength means nothin to skill. As one of the people constantly spouting off about grappling I would have though you knew that.

Generally strength is one of the qualities of being in shape. He's awfully strong for a guy who's out of shape, and would easily knock out most people who criticise his skill.

Not if they had any skill. And dont confuse strength with weight and momentum. Huge difference.

nah tank is in shape, hes just not a 100% lean and perfected his boxing skills like some.

if you see cabbage he has a similar build and is a former thai boxing champ also look at K1 or mark hunt (i must say i seen hunt gassed a few times though in pride
)

600lb benchpress is obviously just weight and momentum... right. As is knocking Don Frye on his ass with a jab. Tank's by no means a contender these days, but he is strong, he hits hard, and he has skills. He was taking out most people in the early days and only losing to the champs of the time. Oleg (UFC 6 champ), Severn (UFC 5 champ, 2nd Hwt Champ), Belfort (still a contender nowadays), Smith (4th Hwt Champ), Rizzo (title contender). His only loss to someone who wasn't top was Ferrozo, and he couldn't continue after "winning" due to injuries. Who wouldn't have losses to those guys?

Personally I think the guys a one punch wonder. As for 600 lbs bench id have to see that. I think the reason he isnt a contender now and people like Vitor are is because the level of skill has gone up since the begining. you dont see all the WC or karateka you did when UFC first started and I think that plays a big difference.

He's more than a one punch wonder, he was one of the first guys to have both striking and grappling skills. He was good enough to avoid getting armbarred by Hugo Duarte and has KOed Correira which Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia both couldn't do. He hasn't evolved with the rest of the MMA world, yes, but 94-95 he was one of the better fighters. You don't sit at that level by being a completely one dimensional, out of shape fighter.
