Would have loved to see this rematch in UU96 1st round! Varelens was even bigger and pumped up that night to fight! And Tank was in his best form!

Varelans did not belong in the UU96 though…just to think he replaced Vitor fucking Belfort whom was slated to fight Mark Coleman whom also backed out due to injury!!

Hey, I was Happy it was Kimo vs Varelens as replacements at least. (Mark Hall was being considred for a main spot) And that ended up being a war!

Oh Yea. Tank was gettin roughed up til the big punch. Still UU96 Tank woulda picked Cabbage up and slammed him down.

I remember when Nelmarked was a verb.

UU96 was disappointing as hell, b/c they didn’t give us the match-ups that the fans wanted in the first round.

Therefore, those match-ups never materialized.

It should have been:

Tank/Shamrock

Frye/Kimo

Goodridge/Varelans

Johnston/Worsham

This would have given us the one match-up everyone wanted to see, Tank/Shamrock, and avoids rematches in the first round (Frye/Goodridge). Everything else that happens after the first round would have simply been icing on the cake.

^^^ Varelans and Worsham were the replacements for Belfort/Coleman.

Liyon - ^^^ Varelans and Worsham were the replacements for Belfort/Coleman.

Actually Kimo/Varelens were sceduled to fight for another fight promotion main event, and UFC paid them to come fight there instead.

For sure wish KenTank happend. one of top 5 dream fights, but UU96 was still awesome for me. seeing Ken do handle new breed Johnston or have trouble with him. Tank nealry throwin Cla out of octagon, Frye/Daddy was awesome again. and Kimo/Varelens was great and a war of attrition. THEN we had Tank kill Nelmark and the Tank/Frye fight as one of the best short fights in history. May have sucked the other way, but yeah Tank/Ken need t to happen. even Frye/Cal & & Tank/Daddy in 1st round coulda been cool too. Shammy vs Varlens or goodridge woulda been interesting too.

I'd forgotten how vicious tank was. Cutting up Varelans face by driving it into the fence, and laughing and smiling at the audience whilst doing so  is a completely different vibe to the constant hand touches and after fight hugs of today.

Tank = awesome !

MR. Combatively 

Tank seemed to get some sort of deviant sexual pleasure when he was grinding his knees into Varelans’s face…
