"I think the whole thing was a farce [the EliteXC promotion]. 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.... Tank Abbott absolutely will be in our Hall of Fame."
UFC President Dana White comments on the recent spectacle that was Kimbo Slice vs. Tank Abbott at the EliteXC: "Street Certified" show on February 16 from the BankUnited Center in Miami, Fla. He also reveals that he has a seat waiting for Abbott once he decides to hang up the gloves. That would mean Abbott would be enshrined alongside Octagon pioneers such as Royce Gracie, Randy Couture, Dan Severn, Ken Shamrock and soon-to-be inductee, Mark Coleman.
