Evan Tanner was always one of my favorites, his fights were displays of heart and passion. Anyone who watched him saw that. I can’t even really explain why I liked him so much outside of that. Dude was just a fuckin warrior but he seemed like such a nice guy. This feature length documentary looks great. I’ve never seen or heard of TapOut Films but as it would appear they’ve put together a great team of producers and looks like they pretty much memorialized the true spirit and story of Evan. RIP to one of my favs, who passed before his time.

Tonight’s card looks pretty decent. Nothing compared to next month’s Fight Night (featuring a lot of huge names), but I’m going to tune in tonight so I figured I’d drop my picks. UFC 82 also marks the return of two past stars and fan favorites: Adrei Arlovski & Evan Tanner. Andrei isn’t even on the main card. As usual, my picks are bolded and click on the pic for a bar list.
Chris Wilson vs. Jon Fitch
Yushin Okami vs. Evan Tanner
Alessio Sakara vs. Chris Leben
Heath Herring vs. Cheick Kongo
Dan Henderson vs. Anderson Silva
It’s been reported that fan favorite Evan Tanner will make his return to the octagon following an almost two year hiatus. He hasn’t been on a card since UFC 59 in April of 2006! Potential opponents include Michael Bisping. I’m happy Tanner is back and that it won’t be one and done, being that he signed a 4-fight deal. Click pic for the read.
