The guy is a professional athlete but he doesn't train. They created Toughman Contests in the 80's for guys like Tank to entertain people. Critics called it human cockfighting, barbaric, etc, and was banned in many states. Then along came the UFC and critics called it human cockfighting, barbaric, etc, but it has grown to what it is today because of regulation, trained referees, and skilled and highly trained athletes. Granted, there are still many states that will not allow full contact MMA events under UFC (or similar) rules, but when was the last time your town had a Toughman contest? It disappeared because of too many critics/politicians who used Toughman video of fat guys who don't train as Exhibit 1 in their mission to have it banned from their town or state. There have been no deaths in any UFC events due in part because real professional athletes TRAIN. MMA critics are always looking for reasons to ban MMA. I don't think we should give them any more by lionizing guys like Tank who don't train properly.
