Interview With Evan Tanner

Evan Tanner

After making his return to action in March with a loss to Yushin Okami after a nearly two-year layoff from MMA, former UFC middleweight champion Evan Tanner will look to go back to his winning ways when he goes against The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner Kendall Grove on Saturday.  In this interview with Chris Howie of MMANews.com, Tanner talks about a variety of topics; below is a portion of the interview:

Chris Howie of MMANews.com: How are things Evan?

Evan Tanner: Everything’s going great.

MMANews.com: How has training been going leading up to the fight with Kendall Grove?

Evan Tanner: Trainings been going great.  I started to get back into it after some time off and now I have been training steadily for almost 8 months.  I’m finally starting to feel like I’m back to my old self.  It’s been a really great camp this time and I was lucky enough to work with some great people.

MMANews.com: How are you feeling you match up with Kendall Grove?

Evan Tanner: I think it’s going to be a good fight for both of us.  It’s also very important because the loser will most likely be dropped from the UFC roster.  We’re both highly motivated and I think that is going to make for a great fight.  I don’t see this fight going to a decision.

MMANews.com: What are your thoughts on being in the main event of this card?

Evan Tanner: It’s a great opportunity and it has a lot of exposure.  Considering both of our situations I think it is going to make for a great main event.
