"... I have to go out there and keep him from fighting his fight, but I don't have a clue what's really going to happen. I think I do better in anything I do when I'm really not sure what's around the next corner. I just kind of go off and explore on my own.... I'm going to get in there and figure it out as we go. I don't have a clue if I'll win. I just know it's fun again."

Eccentric former middleweight champion, Evan Tanner, talks about his latest adventure that is set to take place inside the Octagon against Yushin Okami at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" this Saturday, March 1 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. He hasn't competed in a professional mixed martial arts bout in more than two years and will be up against one of the top contenders in the 185-pound category right out of the gate. Interesting definition of fun ... can't wait. To check out his physical transformation click here.
