Title: Tank vs. Paul Buentello
Post by: *ChuteBoxe* on August 07, 2006, 05:31:14 PM
What do you guys think about this match-up?  Granted they aren't top 10 HW's this still should be a war.  I have actually spoken to Paul a couple times he is cool as fuck.  I think if he avoids Tanks right hand for the first three minutes, Tank will gas, and it's all Headhunter from then on.

That's exactly what I see happening.  It will be fun to watch though.

Paul has pretty good defense, I say he uses the ring, moves away from the overhand, gets Tank to gas, and uses combos to the body followed by a nice lead hand hook/uppercut/overhand combo for the KO.

How does Tank train?  sit at bar, drink beer.  eat pizza, drink beer.  watch porn, drink beer.  go lift. 

He is a natural bruiser who is waaaay past the lucky fighter he once was.  Competition has changed.  Tank hasn't.

He does actually train, I know he trains at a mexican boxing gym, (according to him that is where he developed his punching power) He was a wrestler in college, and he has been training BJJ with Dean Lister.  Although, he doesen't train as much or as hard as he should, plus he never quits drinking as most fighters would when preparing for a fight.

Yeah I know he trains.  I was partly joking because I know he never stops drinking either.  It just seems counter productive to me.

Paul will beat him easily. Did you guys know that Tank is gay? I am dead serious. I know a guy who used to train with him, played for the Lions, I guess he's pretty open about it.

WHAT!!!!

Gay?  Since when?  that can't be true.  Not that there is anything wrong with it (because I don't really care) but that just doesn't seem right?

thats why its so fucked up. He did flirt with the guy announcers a few times on ppv cards years back, but i thought nothing of it till a friend of mine who trained with him told me.

I'd always heard that, but it was always one of those things that just seemed too bizarre to be true...

it's true, don't you remember when he faked like he was going to kiss one of the announcers? And he kept saying "you know I have moves, you know what I'm talking about?"

that rumor is so old....like 1996 old


i dont know if its true...


when people got hurt or dizzy...Tank would say they were on "queer street"


tank mentioned that he though he was raped by freddie mercury (after getting beat by dan severn)
