    Always liked the way he dropped elbows from Mount, he's a dangerous fighter from that position.

    He's a cool enough talented fighter. It'd be nice to see how he comes back.

    He is screwing himself royally. He's an awesome fighter. He's probably even one of the best out there in his weight class. I don't think he's good enough to ever be one of the "greats" (ie the guys making 100k+ per fight + ppv buys), though. The up and coming fighters are just way too good and they just aren't paying any of the really good guys enough money. I hope his house wasn't worth very much :mamoru:.

    I've always been a fan of Tanner. I think he could give Anderson Silva a run for his money.

    so how is he screwing himself royally exactly?


    just because he's not raking in the highest purses, it doesn't mean that he's losing in the end

    he's a man of passion

    From his latest update on his site it looks as if he lost the beard and crazy hair. Gots himself a buzz cut and some shit with the chute box team.
