Evan Tanner is training again

So the good news is that Evan Tanner is actually training. The bad news is he’s training at a club that doesn’t do MMA. I’m really hoping this just means there’s no dedicated ‘mixed’ course … if Evan’s not getting any wrestling or jiu-jitsu, then he could run into some problems down the road. Ah well … whatever happens, at least he’s back in the gym.

Past that point he was sleeping under the ring in the gym for a few days, but now has a nice empty apartment to stay in! His website documents all this in pictures and prose, so go check it out.

    I really hope he relies on nothing but “warrior spirit.” I will pay good money to watch something like that.

    He is beginning to fucking rule…basing his future on what a fortune cookie tells him.

    Who is anyone to say that fortune cookie is wrong.

  • derreck says:

    This guy ROCKS….like how he puts up a pic of a hot coctail waitress walking to work…

  • Zurich says:

    Wtf was with that random shark fishing trip? Haha Tanner is great.

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    this guy is a chode. hes just as dumb as matt hughes.

  • igorpunck says:

    he reminds of a wiered guy i met in the subway. creepo

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain) says:

    To quote Rogan “That guy is my hero”

  • Mr.ThePlague says:

    I hope he gets some serious MMA training going because good technique was never his strong suit. The fights that I remember him losing, he lost because of being unskilled in some of the basics of striking and maybe groundwork too.

  • Xavier says:

    BJ Penn according to Fightlinker: Will suck if he only fights twice a year, random foretold “next generation” will be good at everything and beat him up if he does that.


    Evan Tanner sucks. BJ Penn does not.

  • Andrej says:

    No Evan Tanner rules. BJ Penn …………………..we will see in January won’t we? if he is a stud or a dud. Joe Stevenson fight is intresting.

    Intrested to see if Diego Sanchez moves to lightweight and who he fights aswell?

  • TIGERTAO says:

    ‘KID’Nate took your bet Ryan!

    “I’m taking the bet of course — if Guida wins, I’ll no longer have the lovely eyebrows seen in this pic — but I’m looking to you BloodyElbow readers to set my stake — what should FightLinker have to do if Roger Huerta wins the fight?”

    The suggestions posted there so far are pathetic…

  • operator says:

    He was sleeping under the ring at the gym? What’s next maybe his apartment will burn down or something. I hope he does well because if he does he will definitely have earned it.

  • steve24 says:

    Sorry FL, but your boy still doesn’t seem to have his shit together. Walking into the octagon now is a lot different than a couple years ago. Fact that he’s not even at a facility that trains MMA is scary.

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain) says:

    All Evan needs is warrior spirit. He will show you.

  • frickshun says:

    While I am a fan & want to see this dog rise to glory again, HE’S OUT OF HIS FUCKING MIND. Does anyone else think he has been watching a lot of “Kung Fu The Series” instead of getting a job or training? And why the hell would the UFC sign a guy who hasn’t fought in so long & has just been walking the earth.

    Sponsored by Mickeys?…..*hic*

    Even though Xavier’s post is funny, I beg to differ with the conclusion that Tanner sucks. He is the king of awesomeness and it’ll be great seeing him smashing the overrated spider Silva a.k.a. mr. no skill.

  • Wu Tang says:

    I love Tanner, he is going through some tough times, but he has now a goal, which is what he needs to bring him back! Everyone goes through this, or rather, the induviduals whogoes through this becomes stronger in the end. So Rock on E.T.!!! I am following you and your every move!

  • Matt says:

    “Team Tanner” member! Seriously though I sent him a whopping 20 dollars in sponsorship money and he sent me a personal message saying thanks and that he’s traininig hard..yadayada.. Show some love bitches and help Evan out..

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    evan tanner is like that pathetic friend whos always saying hes gonna do bigger n better things but is stupid, lazy and will never do shit. fuck him and his pussy mentality. warrior spirit my ass.

  • Zero2Hero says:

    He’s like the chump who always promises to be a better boyfriend…the guy that will email, write letters, and call incessantly to prove how much he’s changed in the last month…

    OMG, HE’S 36 years old!!! Homebody should just begin his career working at Big 5 or something. He’l see more action there than in the ring.

  • Mr.ThePlague says:

    Tanner beating Silva. Heh….Ahaha….BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Oh, thats some good stuff.
