Quote :
MMA fans are affectionate towards their favorite legendary fighters, but sometimes, that affection borders on excessive.

And sometimes, it goes so far past excessive that it creates an everlasting myth around the fighters that's certainly apocryphal, but idealistic fans never fail to believe it without question.

I agree with most of them....otherwise I wouldn't have posted it! Very Happy

If hendo can KO him Tank could too... but it would have to be in the first 28 seconds, after that Tank turns to turds and gets pummeled on the ground.

I liked the BJ and Shogun examples. Those are the two most annoying excuses I hear about.

28 seconds is a compliment.

That was a good read. Motivated BJ and Old Vitor are the first 2 examples that came to mind. You can't throw a rock without hitting someone who believes in one or both of those.

Yeah Tanks gas tank isn't that big anymore but those first 15-20 seconds could be heck if he ever landed one of those bombs.

Oh definitely, I watched the Matua fight as a teenager and remember it well. I remember a poll we had at u-f.ca about who the most intimidating fighter in history was, and Tank won handily.

Hey dude you took my parking spo................. nevermind.



That gray in the beard there, that doesn't mean he's old. All that means is "I've kicked a lot of ass over the years".

Heh I have a couple of pictures like that behind my desk with an old fake WWF belt beside it. When kids first meet me they often take a double take at the picture and the belt and assume I was some sort MMA fighter ..... heh I never actually deny it.....

BTW Tank and I do look an awful lot alike..... I am more handsome... lol

Yeah I'd say motivated BJ is probably the most used excuse out of any of these. Another I would have liked to have seen on that list is "Old Tito".
