Evan Tanner Scheduled For Summer Return

Former UFC middleweight champion Evan Tanner has announced on his official website,, that he will be returning to the Octagon this summer:

“Just talked with Joe Silva, the UFC matchmaker. He gave me a date and an opponent. Looks like I’ll be back in the Octagon this summer.

It’s good to have a fight scheduled. The last two weeks have been really rough. I’ll tell the story on that in the next few days.”

Tanner returned to the UFC earlier this month following a two-year hiatus in his MMA career caused by an alcohol addiction. He was defeated in the bout by middleweight contender Yushin Okami via second-round knockout.

No opponent or date has been announced for the summer fight.
