    Evan Tanner....

    Seriously, who is left to beat this guy?

    He's taken apart nearly all UFC has in the 185 division(thats worthy of fighting him).

    In the UFC? I'd like to see him fight a 185 Hendo, Bustamante, or even Sakuraba.

    I like Evan Tanner. I still think he should get a couple more fights, because I don't think he is ready to take on the really high caliber middle weights.

    He might be able to, who knows.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    All I am saying is that there are more middleweights in other organizations that I think would give Evan Tanner a good fight.

    The UFC to me doesn't really have that many great middleweights at this moment.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    I Just watched him escape from Terrel's choke(nice) and then pounded him. The guys good, real good. I wonder why he's not training with Team Quest anymore, after his win the camera panned in the audience on Randy Couture his face was like stone no emotion whatsoever in fact he left his seat ?

    I know people who train with Terrell. He cut WAY too much weight for that fight and, as you can see, he was so exhausted early on he just sat on his back and let Tanner pound him without even TRYING to do ANYTHING.

    Tanner is a good fighter and he's proven himself, but that was not Terrell best in any way shape or form.

    Lindland (I think it was Lindland) said he and Tanner still have beers together and the split with Quest was amicable. He claims Tanner just realized he wanted to do things differently, so he told them so, and that was that.

    It would be nice to believe people could be that grown up.

    That's his fault then.

    Seriously, he gassed trying to knock his head off. The fact that he was trying to sink a gullotine choke for a good bit didn't help his stamina either. Or the fact that he was mounted by a ground and pound expert didn't help either.
