EX UFC Middleweight Champ Evan Tanner Dies at age 37

Posted by arielramon on September 9, 2008

Former Champ Evan Tanner was found dead on Monday near Palo Verde, Calif. He was on a journey to the desert to clear his mind and seek solitude for a while. Apparently he left on Sept 2 and told his friends that if they didnt hear from him in a while to contact authorities. It was as if he already knew something was going to happen. i just found out about this last night and it tore me up. He was a great fighter and person. He was a little weird though in that he seemed like he was into mysticism and worshiping nature. Im not sure if that’s how he really was but he just seemed like that type of person. I know Evan has a lot of family and friends that love him and my heart and prayers go out to them. This is a tragic event for the world of MMA and for sports in general.

What went wrong: Evans vs. Liddell

Posted by arielramon on September 8, 2008

Over 24hrs since the shocking knock out of one of MMA’s Legends, Chuck Liddell, i have gone over the past few fights that Liddell has fought in. In all but one fight, which was against  Wanderlei Silva, Chuck has repeatedly used the same tactics that brought him to where he is today and helped him win the Light Heavy weight title in 2005 against Randy Couture. The problem with he strategy now is that more fighters are learning how to avoid his knock out punches and becoming more diverse in their tactics. I would not say that Chuck needs to get out of the UFC, but he does need to rethink his fight strategy. Rushing forward and hoping for an opening to land a fight ending punch can’t remain as his sole strategy. In his fight against Silva he used the full extent of his skills and came out victorious. Liddell has been a kick-boxer and wrestler for the longest time. If he would utilize and improve on the skills he already has as a kick-boxer and wrestler he would be a force to be reckoned with. The loss to Evans should have never happened with the amount of skill and experience he has. How many times does he need to get his block knocked off to change up the way he fights? Use those skills you have Chuck and Kick ass like you used to. Your fans and I are not gonna give up on you bud! Your a great fighter and an even better person. I believe you can be champ again along with thousands of others. So, lets get to it bro! I wanna say that all you Liddell Fans need to stand up behind Chuck and give him tons of support. Shoot him an email or comment on his myspace. Let him know we still love em!
