View Full Version : Tank Vs. Couture??

From MMAweekly.com.....

Everybody wants to know who Tank Abbott will be fighting. It could be Randy Couture. If you missed it this is what went down. Tank started his interview with Joe Rogan. At the end of the Interview he said who the hell wants to fight me? Nobody wants to fight me, etc. That's when Randy Couture had seen enough. He got up off his chair, charged the Octagon and yelled that he wanted a piece of Tank and dropped some f-bombs in the process. The security people would not let Randy enter the Octagon as as a result, we missed a titanic meeting between the two fighters, which was a shame. That would have been epic.

Will the fight happen? Who knows at this point, but Tank needs an opponent. Randy Couture is looking forward to making a comeback, why not have this one fight? If Tank losses he does a Shamrock and retires. If Couture loses, maybe he does the same, but either way, to have the former UFC Champ face the bad boy of the UFC....THAT could sell tickets, much like Shamrock and Ortiz did.

I dont know if Tank has the stamina to beat Couture, Couture also beat Vitor who destroyed Tank, but diffrent fighters make for diffrent fights.....

That's not a good match at all. Couture would beat him the same way he did Halme.

Tank vs Couture = Couture ownage worse than Sakuraba vs Royler

Dont forget the power of alcohol with Tank, but If tank gets one of his shots in he can win, but tank has no real chance.

Tank is cheekinsheet. When people in da side he is man but in the ring he is ****.

Damn you all non believers! You will see the light

I think Tank would be too one dimensional for Couture...Couture has always trained especially for the different fighters he has faced over the years. He has beaten the best thrown at him and beaten them well.

Tank has hard, heavy hands...but how will his stamina be? Think of the fittest you have ever seen him and then compare that to Couture...no match. Yes tank hits hard, but I don't think Randy would give him a chance to

Couture would own tank, the sport changed and it time some of the old farts see that. I respect what they did, but i don't see them beating modern, well trained fighters. until they start some real training as while.

This is how Tank would look like after the fight:


They should have scripted that Couture run up and face Tank in the Octagon and make a challenge. Man, when WWE does that ****, the fans go wild!
