His fighting career for competitive purposes is essentially over. He can still be marketed and help hype other promotions or he can get a job at a gym somewhere teaching MMA and make a decent living for himself.

I'm not going to psychoanalyze the guy, I'm slightly jealous that he gets to go on all kinds of wild adventures.

Almost makes me wish I didn't have a wife

Had i chose not to get married and have kids....i'd probably be doing the same kind of shit.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

That's up there with mountain climbers and artic travelers.
Why does that make him crazy?

He's an adventurer by the sounds of it, so power to him.

good to see that most of you guys agree that there is nothing wrong with this

wilderness adventures, fighting, anything extreme. these things build character and enrich your life, without it you'd just be another fat slob on the couch.

There ya go fellas who were protesting the "wing nut" thing- I changed the title. First off I'm fan of Tanner and I wasn't trying to insult him with the term- to me the term is more like describing a guy who is kinda out there and not your normal 9-5er. I go mountaining climbing, hiking and biking and do a lot activies outside- camping and all that junk. Wasn't trying to insult the guy.
