Oh, woe was me when his imperial highness Dave Meltzer reported that Evan Tanner was not under contract to the UFC anymore. And now, do I dare to open my heart up to the possibility that our favorite character in MMA is going to step back in the ring? Yes, I do!
According to Jorge Oliviera (a training partner with Evan), Tanner will be returning to the octagon at UFC79 against Dean Lister. Of course, this is friend of a friend type information, but I’m sure by Tuesday the information will be repeated so much that it will magically become true. As Luke Thomas has taught me, if you don’t shake the tree then how you gonna get the coconuts out?
