From a ProElite.com press release this afternoon:

The always colorful, entertaining and unpredictable David “Tank” Abbott will be a special guest on the nationally televised Jimmy Kimmel Live show tonight/Thursday at 12:05 a.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Tank (tankabbott.proelite.com), one of the original Mixed Martial Arts bad boys and most ferocious knockout artists in history, will discuss, among other things, his eagerly anticipated, long-awaited grudge fight with Kimbo Slice (kimboslice.proelite.com) set for Saturday, Feb. 16, at the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami on SHOWTIME.

The only question I care to hear answered is how hard Tank has been training for Kimbo Slice. I have a feeling that he might be taking this fight more seriously than he has his past few fights. Should be interesting to see what kind of shape he’s in and how focused he seems on the fight.

    I think Tank will show up in phenominal shape for this fight. What’s it been like 30 years since he went the distance with Oleg Taktarov? Unless he knocks Kimbo out in the first round, I don’t see him winning this fight.

    Yes has Rich! He has taken one fight and one fight only seriously. The Cabbage rematch. And he dropped him cold.

    I feel a little dirty that they’re going to be talking about MMA on a big late night talk show and they’ll be discussing the fat guy that loves to drink and the famous street fighter. Doesn’t exactly make it look appealing.

  • Sam Cupitt says:

    Yeah i know what you mean Huckaby, especially when the card is called “Streets Certified”. Because as we all know the average mma hater refers to MMA as sanctioned street fighting.

    But other than that is should prove to be hilarious.

    Think Tank will have a cocktail while he’s waiting backstage?

    According to the conference call… he can afford it.

    Yeah, lotta guys can. I see a few on street corners with signs saying “will work for food” and whatnot. Maybe Tank can carry a sign onto Kimmel’s show saying “will fight for vodka” or “homeless vet”.
