i cant wait because i think he is right he will take the belt

With the way Tanner has been performing lately, I would love to see this fight!

I guess I am the only one who laughed out loud at that quote.

maybe silva doesn't have security or a dog at his place and tanner can sneek in and steal it outta the closet.

Probabaly, but Silva's ground game is questionable. Evan needs to get his heart back into the game before I take him seriously.

Evan Tanner and Silva match up perfectly I think. However Silva is comparable to the crow in terms of standup skills so I'm not sure.

I just think that Rich Franklin has Tanner's number no matter what he does. I can't wait to see Tanner back in action.

Tanner wont be back!

Just like Matt Lindland hes a good fighter, with a great career behind him but hes just not marketable!

Notice how Dana appears to be just throwing people at Silva.

It's as if he wants him to lose. I get the feeling Dana does not care for Silva.

That being said, I think Dana wants to protect marketable champions.

Personally, I don't care who is champion as long as I see good fights.

He disappeared some time after he spanked Terell.

tanner will be back and kicking ass

hahahaha does evan tanner actually believe that he is gonna come back from like couple years abcense and beat anderson silva look what happen to chris leben and rich franklin he walked rite through them and anderson silva is a black belt in jui jitsu so u cant say he doesnt have a good ground game. so for evan tanner to come out and say that is beyond me cause in my mind evan tanner is good but hes been haven problems with drinkin and family issues and anderson sila is at the top of his game in my mind the only one rite now that would stand a chance to take that belt would be mike swick
