I did once about 10 years ago. This was when he was considered one of the best fighters in the world. It was supposed to be a grappling session but he started "lightly" striking me with his bare fists when he was in my guard.

All I could think about was getting Matua'd so I let him pass guard. He was in side control for a few minutes roughing my face with a forearm across my nose and mouth. I left my arm out begging for a sub and he finally grabbed it and hit a kimura.

When I tapped about 5 of his friends ran over and started congratulating him. I grabbed my shit and ran out the door before I got the shit beat out of me.

Tank's is highly analogous to Kimbo, but far worse.

I asked Tim Lacjak (sp?) about Tank. He said they wrestled each other in the state tournament in high school. Don't recall the details of the match but it ended when Tank bit him.

True story.

FUTA1 trained with Tank.

Otherwise, quite a few gentlemen have rolled with Tank over the years in a variety of interesting settings.

Yup.

Tank actually accused Tito of stealing money out of his truck or something similar.

..."Tank got practically mauled by any one that wasn't a legitimate fighter."

You mean *was* a legit fighter, right?

Can't say I agree with this statement. Tank got practically mauled by any one that wasn't a legitimate fighter.



I wonder if you actually watched these fights, or simply looked up their results. Who, aside from Vitor, "mauled" Tank? It was usually the other way around, with Tank "mauling" legitimate fighters like Frye and Oleg before gassing out.

Also... Tank made it to the finals of UFC tournaments twice. The first time he fought Taktarov, and lost in a war that left the Russian completely drained and in need of oxygen (Tank got up and walked out of the octagon).

Taktarov essentially had a bye in his second fight, since Anthony Macias, his student, threw their fight in 12 seconds. Tank could very well have won that tournament if Oleg had had a real second fight.

The second tournament was the Ultimate Ultimate 2. Same situation. Tank almost KOed Frye, but snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. The funny thing is that Frye paid Mark Hall to throw their fight in Frye's second fight of the night. If Frye had had a real fight...

If Frye and Taktarov hadn't cheated Tank would probably be considered a legend rather than the joke that many seem to consider him today.
