Fuck, Evan Tanner rocks. While his return from the deep end means I have less funny material to write about, I can’t help but get caught up with all the inspirational shit he says and does lately. Check out this quote on why he’s gone with the fans for sponsorship and not any of the companies that emerged after MMA became ‘the next big thing':
“I’d be representing these companies that had nothing to do with getting the sport to where it is and representing products that I don’t even use. There’s something that just didn’t seem right with that, so I totally cut out all corporate sponsors and worked directly with the fans because back in the day that’s what it was – it was you, your opponent, and the fans watching – and it was really the fans that made this happen.”
While the betting odds aren’t in favor of Tanner beating Yushin Okami, there’s no doubt in my mind that Evan is going to route that boring lay’n’pray bastard. WAR TANNER!
