    [for tank?]

    I watched the fight and just kinda felt like a scumbag the whole time.

    Tank looked old and slow and weak. The man just took a paycheck for an asswhoopin. I feel bad for the guy.

    I think Tank definitely thought he had an above average chance of winning this fight.

    Did he have a gameplan? No
    Did it look like he tranined? No
    Do I feel sorry for him? No
    Is it officially over for him? Hopefully

    It was one thing to bag on Kimbo.

    It was another thing to take shots at Bas. :nuts:

    I felt bad for him.

    When he was sitting in that little box thingy while Goldberg was interviewing him he looked so small and nervous.

    I was also pissed off at all the shots to the back of the head with no time to recover.
     
  6. I felt a lot worse for James Thompson.

    he's been fighting for nothing but a check for a long time now, he's used to it by now i'm sure.

    when people don't have a well rounded mma skill set and want to look better than they are you get fed tank, he'll stand still and bang, he'll take a bunch of shots and he'll gas out and finally go to sleep. he's got a name people recognize even though he hasn't done anything for a hell of a long time so he's just a step up for fighters that can't compete with the top notch fighters but need some hype Tank is fighting for his rent checks, he has to know he's just a fat out of shape guy who never developed any skills to round out his MMA game, he's a good brawler in a world full of well rounded athletes who will chew him up. i just hope they remember to give tank some easy fights vs guys more out of shape than he is so he can keep a tough guy image so he can continue to lay down for $ against guys like Kimbo who need hype and don't have the skills to get it the true way vs top notch competition
     
  8. If you ever feel bad for tank for any reason, watch the way he acts after he WINS a fight.

  11. get used to it. Kimbo's hype is long going to outpace his abilities, and fanboys are going to hate on him personally because of it, because that's what makes them fanboys.

    I used to like Tank because I thought he was a badass street fighter, but I think that reputation was undeserved. He claims something like a 300-1 record? Give me a break.

    Tank winning would do nothing, tank losing is what was supposed to happen.

    the reason why tank gets fights nowdays is to be cannon fodder for young guys trying to get some hype that can't fight the real top guys, that's about as true as can be, it's not like Tank had much more than a lucky punch chance and it's not like kimbo can beat anyone with a big name that isn't washed up so i don't know what part of my post upset you.
    i'm not saying kimbo is a pussy, shit i'd run from the guy lol, but he isn't a true MMA fighter, he's not well rounded at all, he shouldn't get the attention he gets but he does due to his ghetto youtube fights and beating up on a old fat washed up tank

    i don't feel bad for tank cause he gets these pay days because people recognize his name, he gets more $ than he deserves based on talent because of that name recognition, if you're wanting to hype yourself and beat up on a big name, a fat out of shape washed up tank is an easy option, he's gonna stand in 1 spot and he's gonna be tired after 30 seconds and he's just a big fat target.
    Kimbo isn't a punk or pussy, he just isn't worthy of all they hype
