Tanner To Retire?

Evan Tanner

As we all know already, Evan Tanner lost to Kendall Grove at The Ultimate Fighter 7 event that was televised on Spike TV this weekend.  An interesting posting was made by Tanner on his blog at Spike.com after his bout with Grove.  Below is a portion of his post:

I’M DONE, I’M RETIRING

It was a long walk back to the dressing room after the fight.  The doctor was there waiting on me, telling me I had to go to the hospital to get a CAT scan and stitches, letting me know they were giving me a medical suspension of 45 days.  I was in no mood for that, and I know I was rude about it.  I’ve known him for a while, but I don’t think I ever got his name.  If he happens to read this, I would like to offer him my sincerest apology for my disrespectful behavior.

I was pissed off about the fight, f**king sad, f**king raging, on edge, all of it heavy with me, trying to maintain, trying not to explode.  Camera men in my face, corner men, doctors, security, paramedics, friends, journalists, too many bodies crowding me, too many hands pulling me too many ways.  I couldn’t move, I couldn’t breath, standing there afraid of the man that would come out if I lost control.  I broke free, turned my back, stepped into the bathroom and closed the door.  I tried to catch my breath in that small space, tried to calm down.
