In honor of Invicta 4, we now present you the juxtaposition of an estrogen-filled fight weekend with a man who still donates his testosterone for therapeutic use to still active athletes – Tank Abbott. We blast back to the wild west known as the 90’s, where the 4:3 aspect ratio and goateed men were kings. Back when mocking your stiff and knocked out opponent was an acceptable post-fight celebration. This is when Tank Abbott was the manly face of MMA as we knew it, win or lose. Many people look back on the golden age of MMA with Tank Abbott as the guy who got them interested in the sport, a legit brawler who had the foresight to wear gloves so he didn’t break his hands on his opponent’s skull. In this way, he was an innovator.
Without further ado, old-school Tank Abbott, ladies and gentlemen. RIP Jeff Blatnick.
