I've always been a HUGE evan tanner fan, in and out of the ring, he treats people with such respect that you don't see anymore. Hell he's even talked to me twice and given me fighting advice on going pro, how many big fighters you think would do that?
I think Evans got a good chance at silva just because i believe his clinch(sp?) is great, he has an amazing Greco Clinch. Plus he has a heart like Ken Shamrock, the guy doesn't quit (shows in the ref stoppages).
What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
