Former UFC Middleweight champion Evan Tanner was found Monday in the Palo Verde mountain area of Brawley, California. Tanner was in the desert area on a camping trip and text messaged friends on Thursday that he was out of water and his motorcycle was out of fuel. That sparked a search by officials.

Tanner was a two time state champion in wrestling and began fighting in MMA on what he describes as a whim. He was famous for being self taught, having taught himself submissions and striking from video tape instructionals.

Tanner's last fight was a decision loss to Kendall Grove at UFC's The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale.
