I still can't believe that he lost his life on the trip that he told us all he was going to do.  It's just unreal... I remember following him through his struggles with alcoholism.  He was very inspirational to so many in that journey back to the Octagon.  Though he didn't win in his return, he'd already won many times over not only in the Octagon, but in reclaiming his life.

Yeah.

Inspiration should definitely be a factor. Aside from fighting, his interaction with the MMA community is a thing of legend, too. Official HOF or not, his persona transcends what it means to be HOF. True legend.

Someone posted a thread the other day asking which fighters will be forgotten in a number of years. Evan Tanner will never be forgotten because *he meant something to people*. He represented the struggle of humanity, and if you're reading this and can't identify with that, congratulations, you've lived a very nice life.

I drove through the same desert he was in (Palo Verde region, was it?) within a day or two of when he would have been there. What a silent, isolated, hot place. Still kind of crazy to think about it.

RIP, Champ.
