Believe in the power of graphic design!

A while back, Evan Tanner announced that he was turning his back on corporate sponsors and would be creating “Team Tanner” as a way for all fans to sponsor and support him. Two weeks later, we now have the official details on what exactly Evan meant:

This is what I envision for Team Tanner. A team shirt for all members, custom designed for each fight. When I step in the Octagon, those who wish to show support can wear the shirt. I will walk to the Octagon in front of millions, wearing the exact same shirt paying my respect to the team members, the ones that made it happen.

Basically, you donate money to Evan to help support him, and you get a certain amount of goodies back. The range of donations go from $50 bucks up to $4000, with perks from signed pictures to training with Evan to Evan’s comp tickets for the events he fights at. Each event he’ll have one slot open for someone to join his team and corner him. Pretty interesting, I must say. Click here for the specific details of what you get for different donations.

    How much to stretch out his brown eye with my big black snake?

  • frickshun says:

    Darkie,

    That’s on the website, cost ya $50.

  • Lifer says:

    The best part about this is that if you scroll down to 2 posts ago on his blog he’s asking for corporate sponsors for his friend.

    I’m not giving this drunken, boat-crashing washout $2500 for the chance to ‘possibly run into’ some famous fighters while he explains to me that we won’t be training any grappling at his home gym anymore because he didn’t like the VIBE at other gyms.

    Fuck that. Where’s my insurance that my $2500 isn’t going directly to his whore-fucking, ship-sinking, wood alcohol guzzling demon living deep within his soul?

  • marshal says:

    I’ll pay $50 to sit down and have a few drinks with him. Too soon?

  • Thomas says:

    Evan Tanner….
    Hope he gets his $hit together

  • ajadoniz says:

    Very interesting. I’ll be donating a crispy Grant to Mr. Tanner. Hope he does well and stays clean.

  • Interesting idea, for someone like Chuck Liddell or Rich Franklin. I don’t know if Tanner even has enough fans for this to be remotely viable.

    Then again $4,000 is probably cheaper than if you go the traditional ticket brooker way I’ve trying to get ringside seats. So it might be a good idea if your in that market even if your not a Tanner fan.

  • Lee_UK says:

    Hey fair play to him and I thinks its a great deal for him and the fans. A very unique and personal way of gaining support and I wish him all the best.

    Evan, I’m impressed mate and I wish you all the luck in the world. I look forward to taking you up on this in the near future.

  • Shit, I’d pay that for some of my favorite fighters. That would be a dream vacation for me to do all that with like GSP or Rich Franklin or something. It’s actually a pretty smart idea on his part. I’m glad there’s someone thinking outside the box to support his fighting career.

  • Atom says:

    Team Tanner, with its various levels of giving, is starting to sound a bit like Team Scientology.

  • Xavier says:

    Evan Tanner is officially now a douchebag.

  • Prozac For All says:

    I’m a loyal Tanner-ite zealot and it only cost $100. As such, I have access to the private store section of his site. Figure’d I’d give you a preview of the goodies you can gain access to if you join our cult of truthfulness:

    – Evan Tanner’s downloadable PDF guide “10 Steps to More Invigorating Johnson Massage”

    – A vomit-soaked bottle cap from a real beer that The Lord Tanner himself dispensed of

    – Life-sized Dave Terrell dartboard

    – 13 spatulas

    – Tannerite prayer beads, for use when he is in the holy octagon of light

    – 1 free anal intercourse session with an Evan Tanner groupie

    – Free musical screen saver of Evan Tanner’s sunken boat with Sarah Brightman music playing in the background

    – A Xyience cookie

    – 50% off coupons for Santa Monica’s “Punch Real Toddler’s” training dojo

    – A real limited edition Evan Tanner pub, supplies limited!

  • Swedish Guy says:

    I’ve never before in my life wanted 4000 bucks this much.

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    i thought you had to have a license to corner someone.

    why would i pay a couple grand to see him train when i train with real fighters for $70 a month. their not ufc fighters (if you can really call evan that) but sergio gomez and sheron legget were on the tap out show. i was training with a guy (jameel) who just went to japan and the douchebag jap refused to fight him. strasser has an opening for someone from our gym to be on Miami Ink and fight.

  • MoreThanUFC says:

    You do need to be licensed to be a cornerman. It’s all BS.

  • Ryan says:

    Remember when Melvin Guillard tried to auction off a cornerman position on ebay? Yeah, the UFC came down hard on that…

    No way is Evan going to be allowed to do this.

    Man, people’s memories are short.

  • andres says:

    Haha I got all of this of ebay for 10.5o ya got to go bootleg
    Sometimess

  • Kyria Christison says:

    The person who will be in the corner will have a license and they will be brought out a few days prior to the fight so they will understand what it is to be in the corner.

    Thanks
