Evan Tanner: 'Ill be back in the Octagon this summer'

evan tannerProps:


"Just talked with Joe Silva, the UFC matchmaker. He gave me a date and an opponent. Looks like I'll be back in the Octagon this summer. It's good to have a fight scheduled. The last two weeks have been really rough. I'll tell the story on that in the next few days."

Former UFC middleweight champion Evan Tanner is ready to get back in the saddle in the next few months after a knockout loss to Yushin Okami at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" earlier this month. Should be interesting to see who he's matched up against -- the list of notables is short with 12 185-pound fighters slated to compete in April alone.
