    Oh sweet. For a second there I thought they were going to let go top MW talent. Thank god they resigned Belcher and a pathetic drunk Tanner.

    I hope he's clean. MW division is so bad he might have a chance.

    Tanner has personal demons that he's got to get past before he can even worry about fighting agian. :hs: I wish him the best, but don't see him getting his shit together and getting it done.

    prob because more casual fans know tanners name and he can draw in more money for them. sucks because okami was going places in the ufc, i would have liked to see him actually get on a main card and show more people what he can do, dudes a beast.
     
  17. Tanner would be an interesting matchup for Anderson. If the guy has his head together maybe he'll make a comeback as a great fighter, kind of like Anderson re-invented himself once he finally got his game together.

    I'm sure they got him at a pretty cheap price. Dana knowing he was broke is gonna take advantage of making some money off him.
     
  19. tanner was broke? I thought he was just fucked in the head. Alcoholism is pretty cheap if you start off with some money.

    Tanner's fighting style is a Cro-Magnon Rich Franklin.
