Evan Tanner – Rest in Peace

Evan Tanner , former UFC middleweight champion, is no longer with us.  He was found deceased Monday, September 8th near Palo Verde, California.

Tanner wrote often in his blogs on Myspace.com and Spike.com about taking trips into the wild to get his head straight and as he would put it, “cleanse himself”.  He had expressed interest in taking another trip recently. Here is a portion of Tanner’s blog on Spike.com from August 16th, 2008.

“I’ve been gathering my gear for this adventure for over a month, not a long time by most standards, but far too long for my impatient nature. Being a minimalist by nature, wanting to carry only the essentials, and being extremely particular, it has been a little difficult to find just the right equipment. I plan on going so deep into the desert, that any failure of my equipment, could cost me my life. I’ve been doing a great deal of research and study. I want to know all I can about where I’m going, and I want to make sure I have the best equipment.
