Contest not open to Canadians :-(



But I can't wait to order the movie, been waiting a long time and it looks so good. If the trailer had my eyes getting "wet" the movie should generate a pretty powerful emotional reaction.

Cheers

TheMastro - Evan Tanner was my first favorite fighter. I always respected him for the way he carried himself. Guy was a class act. Phone Post
He was my father and I's favorite fighter. We always rooted for opposites, but not when Tanner was fighting. Phone Post

Sorry didn't see this message until today!  We killed the battery on our camera so my wife took this pic with my old phone that didn't have a flash... turned out pretty shitty and blurry but the picture still cracks me up.

Good times!

I'm sure this has been covered before, but I watched the trailer and I was wondering what the story was with Chael's comments. I am a Chael fan, but everyone was so positive about this guy and that comment about his intelligence seemed out of place. Is it taken out of context? what else did he say? Were they not friends?

Someone enlighten me.

I wondered the same thing when I first saw that clip, but I'm guessing by his "intelligent" comments that he's meaning that he doesn't think Evan was "all there" towards the end of his life.  They definitely had a falling out though because I've seen other clips where Sonnen talks about Evan always being on myspace and not being a responsible adult and answering phone calls.

I don't know a whole lot about it but the impression I got in the clips that I've seen online is that Sonnen and Tanner grew apart when Evan was really struggling in life.
