    From the original thread in GnG.

    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.

    Edit: Confirmed
