It seems that even though Evan Tanner lost a supposed loser leaves town fight to Kendall Grove at the TUF 7 Finale, he won't be leaving UFC because of the loss, but rather due to what he calls some "serious health problems for a while now". Tanner says if he can't get it figured out, he's retiring.

Here's to hoping he can get it figured out. I would hate to see him retire just because of this....

you should put quotations around "loser leaves town fight" because without them that sentence is almost completely incomprehensible. I had to read it like 4 times before I realized what it said.

-EDIT-

I'm not a grammar nazi or anything, but that's the kind of error that makes the meaning unclear so I thought it deserved correction.

Hey Evan... That guy in the octagon shaped thing stole your bottle of wine! Go get it back!

(I love Tanner and was rooting for him, but he really looked like a homeless dude lol.)

I am a big Tanner fan, he is such a likeable guy. I hope he figures his personal and health issues out. He didnt look like the same Tanner against Grove, which sucked because Grove is mediocre at best.

And his beard kicked massive ass, after seeing some of his pre-fight interviews I was praying he would keep it so I thought it was bitchin to see him rock it in the fight.

War to Tanner I hope to see him around for a few more fights atleast

I heard rogan once say that evan tanner's training has always been a huge question mark. Surely not, he was the middleweight champion of the world right ??
I know he's taken along time out, 2 comeback fights, two loses, does that tell us that he doesn't have a fight camp in his training or what ?? Does anyone know where he's at ??

Cheers
