Not so Breaking News! Evan Tanner is not a wing-nut, just kinda "out there" :)

Evan Tanner Heading Into the Sunset?

The Fightlinkers are worried that their all time fave is trying to kill himself....again. Here's the quote from Evan's blog on Spike:
I've been gathering my gear for this adventure for over a month, not a long time by most standards, but far too long for my impatient nature. Being a minimalist by nature, wanting to carry only the essentials, and being extremely particular, it has been a little difficult to find just the right equipment. I plan on going so deep into the desert, that any failure of my equipment, could cost me my life. I've been doing a great deal of research and study. I want to know all I can about where I'm going, and I want to make sure I have the best equipment.

I hope the dude takes care of himself.

Evan Tanner is a big time kook!

I respect the hell out of the things that he's accomplished by being a strong minded individual but then I loathe the way he is so unstable. The guy just needs to stay grounded.

He totally reminds me of Christopher McCandless. I just hope Evan doesnt see the same fate as he did.

Rich Franklin stole Evan Tanner's soul and fed it to a rising Anderson Silva. I feel bad for Tanner, I always liked him. It sucks to see his career go to shits like this. If he ever decides to come back, I'd support him like I do every time.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

I have a bad feeling someone is gonna find this guy dead from an overdose or some type of tragic end. I feel like this is a story that just doesnt end well.

He's not a junkie, his problems essentially end at drinking and blackjack. We all sit around feeling bad for this guy, but he's out there seeing the world, living a more adventurous life than a lot of us.

War Evan Tanner!

Perhaps he's going into the middle of the desert to have a crazy trip on some Datura or some thing.

What the hell is he eating?

Is he going to go all grizzly man on us and end up getting torn apart by some huge angry predator?
