Gossip Queen Exclusive – Tank Abbot to Fight for Instinct?


I just heard a breaking development for the December 2nd Instinct MMA card that could not wait for next week’s rumour mill.

There is a strong rumour that Instinct MMA may be bringing in 46 year-old Tank Abbott for their December 2nd card. The card will be held in Quebec City, as I mentioned in my last column. Details on his opponent are fuzzier, but it appears that the legendary UFC veteran could face Steve Bossé or possibly the winner of the Steve Bossé vs Houston Alexander bout on the Instinct MMA 1 card this Friday.

Just remember that Tank Abbott and Steve Bossé were set to fight at TKO 32 but the bout was postponed because Bossé broke his hand at TKO 31 in his loss to Icho Larenas .

As usual, take this as a rumour as no one will confirm this, however, my source is someone close to the promotion.

Look for an announcement on this as early as Friday’s Instinct MMA 1 card.

    ryan, no he isn’t that’s what makes it so crazy!! As if Tank wasn’t scary enough, a ZOMBIE Tank is truly terrifying because zombies don’t gas out!!

    Why the FUCK would The Boss fight this guy? He is an enormous has-been. Seriously, if his management team thinks this is a forward move for his career, he needs to rethink things.

    Oddly enough, I’m with Harry Balls. It would be an absolutely ridiculous move for Bosse to fight Tank, who is even less relevant today than Ken Shamrock (which is saying something).

    However, Tank vs. Shamrock, now that might be interesting for old times sake.

    You’re with Harry balls? As in very very close? Or as in you need some manscaping? Yeah I don’t think this fight will happen, it can’t bosse is way ahead of where tank is in his career. Tank vs butterbean, now that makes sense!

    Stupid fight for bosse . If he gets by Houston he’s 10-1 and getting really close to ufc . Beating tank Abbott doesn’t get you in the big show ! Would it be at light heavyweight

    Honestly I would like to see Tank versus either Donald Brashear or Bruno Hosier purely for entertainment value.
