Dana White admitted that he got a chance to take in the Kimbo Slice/Tank Abbott fight after watching Kelly Pavlik defeat Jermaine Taylor in a boxing match. He gave his impressions of the fight and UFC legend Tank Abbott in particular, to ESPN.com.
“I think the whole thing was a farce,” White told ESPN.com. “I love Tank. I have nothing but respect for him; he’s always been good to me. But I don’t want to see that again.”
White went on to pay Tank Abbott the ultimate homage.
“Tank Abbott,” White said, “absolutely will be in our Hall of Fame.”
