Today is former middleweight champion and eccentric philosopher Evan Tanner’s birthday. He would be 42 years old if he had not taken that ill-fated journey into the California desert. Ah, who are we kidding. He totally would have died in a bear attack or jetpack malfunction sometime between then and now.

Evan was an interesting guy with a lot of personal demons, and nothing shows you that better than the documentary ‘Once I Was A Champion’, which after years of development is finally finished and available on Youtube PPV. You can check that out here. What better way to celebrate his cakeday than watching a movie about him?
