Will we ever see Evan Tanner in octagon again?

Does anyone know when Tanner will fight again? He is a pretty good Muay Thai guy. He might have good enough defense of it so he could get Anderson to the ground and submit him. Anyway was just wondering if he is still fighting in the UFC.

Maybe one day, but now? Nope. Tanner is off in his own little world, and it doesn't seem like he'll be coming back to earth anytime soon. His last fight was at UFC 59, and I haven't heard anything else. Tanner's new idea is to build a house, and put fighters in there, and make them train.

i think tanner never got the credit he deserved, if he didnt lose to franklin, he wouldve been coach for TUF2 and probably be a big name...i wouldnt mind seeing him fight again, i doubt he will get a title shot, but he could fight some up and comers who think he is a stepping stone and get their butts kicked..cough, david terrell, cough....

Whoa Whoa. Calm down there. I wasn't saying he was going to kick Anderson's ass but he was a champ at one point and he had a decent enough clinch. I think he could be up there behind Anderson and Rich. Also Swick and maybe Marquardt if he wins a few more dominantly

Tanner was a good fighter, definetly no can. He has a myspace page. This guy definetly has a few screws loose.

This isn't worth debating on so ill just keep it short...

Evan Tanner does NOT suck.

Evan Tanner vs. Mike Swick would be a pretty sweet fight! But that won't happen anytime soon! Its like one of the posters said! The man is off in his own little world!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
