Once I was a Champion - Evan Tanner documentary



Looks like the old www.evantanner.net domain hasn't been renewed, which is a shame, but most of the content seems to be hosted here now:

http://www.onceiwasachampion.com/

Sounds like there's a documentary on the go that chronicles Evan's life.

An excerpt (may or may not make the final cut):



For those who haven't seen it, Evan Tanner wasn't your run-of-the-mill MMA fighter. Not in the least.

Right on, thanks for sharing. I'm really looking forward to this, Evan was a remarkable man, a genuine good soul.

Yeah, I look forward to it. Evan Tanner was the athlete I probably admired most in the sport. A shame his "Evan Tanner House" didn't work out.

There was an interview with the director on ESPN radio... might wanna check it out: http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2010/9/2/...mpion-the-evan

Sounds like he thought he had finished the movie, but then Dana White contacted him and said he wanted to do an interview.

It was in post production until Dana White wanted in on it. Sounds like the fillmmaker is off to Vegas to do that interview, then more editing and such. Unclear.

I'm glad Dana is getting in on it, it would've been a real shame to not have someone from the UFC pay respect to him after all he gave the company.

Same here, I don't usually idolize athletes but Evan was a remarkable person. RIP Evan.
