Former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder Evan Tanner takes on The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner Kendall Grove in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter 7 Live Finale this Saturday from the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

"I feel really good. I've been working at the Warrior Training Center in Vegas... I've got a really good camp and I'm feeling great. I feel really good," Tanner told MMAWeekly.com about his upcoming bout with Grove.

Tanner returned to the Octagon at UFC 82 after nearly two years away from competition in a losing effort to middleweight contender Yushin Okami. "It's all a learning experience," said Tanner. "Yea, if I had taken more time to prepare for the fight, of course, I know I could have done a little better. Maybe if I had taken a more lesser opponent my first fight. That's the fight that was offered and the time that was offered, so I figured I'd at least get my foot back in the door. So I took it.

"Going into this fight with Kendall Grove I'm an older and wiser man, an older and wiser fighter."
