Former UFC Middleweight Champion Evan Tanner has signed a four-fight deal with the UFC.
Tanner announced the news earlier today on his official website.
Tanner has not competed inside the Octagon since April of last year when he submitted Justin Levens with a triangle at UFC 59. He became the third UFC Middleweight Champion in history when he stopped David Terrell at UFC 51 in 2005. He would go on to lose the belt in his very next fight against Rich Franklin at UFC 53.
