Roy ain't taking Tank down.

Prime Tank was a vicious motherfucker with LEGIT one shot KO power.

He'd break Roy's face..

You got Tank? Surely you jest.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing but respect for Tank for stepping in the cage back in the day when there was no fight camps, no clue what the other fighter brought to the cage as far as skills and discipline, knowing that the other persons only mindset was to hurt you as much as possible. No point system, no judges....just war....and multiple wars each night as well.

That being said, Tank use to win because he was bigger, stronger and he would mentally bully the other fighters and punch as hard, as fast, and as many times as possible until he connected, KOing his opponent.

What does Tank have that Nelson couldn't counter or defend? He obviously has better cardio, better defense, I'd argue better hands, he kicks, he can grapple, sub, anything Nelson wants to do, he could do. There isn't a single thing that Tank can do better than Nelson.

I know you were obviously trolling after you said you got Tank, but that's my logical answer to your question. If you were baiting me to reply, you win good sir....you win. Phone Post

This thread was done a whole back! One of my favourite posts went something along the lines of
"Regardless of which vintage Tank turns up, Roy takes this pretty easily"
He's better in every single area of the game with a great chin Phone Post 3.0

Tank would get taken down thrown in the Crucifix and beat half to death.

Even if you bring forward in time so he could train by today's standards he's not beating Roy Nelson. Phone Post

Roy Nelson by anything he wants likely in the first round, if not after Tank gases.

Mr. Wright -

Dude, this a feel good thread about a sick fight. I'd take Tank but would not bet that shit. There is no troll just a thread about a sick fight. I think Tank can land and hurt Roy.

Stop being soooooo serious about a theoretical sick fight bro.

Roy in a very close fight. Almost a toss up. There was a prime Tank who was a real bad motherfucker with good cardio and TDD. But the sport evolved too much... Phone Post 3.0

Nelson is a punch bag. Who has he beaten that's great? Or gone to war with that is a legend?

And fuck does he have better power thank Tank! Arlovski used Cabbages head as a speedball and couldn't KO him. Tank laid him out for nigh-on ten minutes..
