Evan Tanner update

From Team Tanner organizer Kyria (via email, so no link):

I spoke with Evan’s family today and they have finalized Evan’s memorial. His memorial will be held in Amarillo, TX on September 27th at 2:00 p.m. at the Civic Center. The Civic Center is located at 401 South Buchanan Street.

If anyone wishes to send flowers or cards, they can be sent to Jeff Tanner, 504 S Harrison Street, Amarillo TX   79101. The family has also set up a memorial fund with The Amarillo National Bank. If you are interested in donating to his memorial fund, please email me for details.

I have received so many emails about purchasing a shirt, beanie, etc. I do not know Evan’s family’s plan for Team Tanner so I do not have the information you are looking for. The family has a lot to absorb and also needs time to mourn the loss of Evan so please respect that. If and when they decide to move ahead with shirts, etc, I have kept all of the emails and someone will be able contact them with the details.

And from Dave Meltzer:

“–Dana White said this morning that they will be dedicating Wednesday night’s live show on Spike from Omaha, headlined by Houston Alexander vs. Eric Schafer, to Evan Tanner and that they will be airing an Evan Tanner TV tribute show on Spike. White said they’ve also put together 30 second tribute spots for Tanner that will be airing soon.”

    come on dude. bj stopped exhnangicg punches with diaz. also don’t make excuses about height and reach. it’s bj’s decision to fight someone bigger than him. i give props to bj for fighting bigger opponents. but bj should have came up with a better game plan. he shouldn’t of tried to box diaz. instead he should of took him down (which he tried) and ground and pound. that’s what gsp is gonna do to diaz. take him down, grapple him and ground and pound.
