Tank Abbott on Kimbo Slice: I'll Put My Fist Between His Eyes

Even in his prime in the real old days of UFC, Tank Abbott was never actually a particularly good fighter, but he had the menacing persona that made him a favorite among a certain segment of fans. The same could be said about Kimbo Slice, the internet phenomenon who's now trying to establish himself as a legitimate athlete in mixed martial arts.

So it makes sense that they'll be fighting each other next month. Here's what Abbott says he plans for the fight:

"I can't wait to see him up close and personal so I can put my fist between his eyes," Abbott said. Abbott says he's going to show up in shape, and that he's gone from 296 pounds to 258. I think Slice is going to give him a beating.
