    Former UFC fighter Chris Lytle may have never challenged for a title but when it came to event-bonuses “Lights Out” was a divisional king. The seasoned scrapper won ten extra paychecks during his time in the Octagon including six Fight of the Night awards. Though Lytle retired in his relative prime, opting to focus on his loved ones and an attempt at being elected to public office instead of in-ring glory, that’s not to say the 38-year old hasn’t considered a return to the ring.

    Well, it’s that time. I’ve been saying that I had this idea in mind for the last several days, and now that my post-event coverage of “UFC on Versus 5” has officially wrapped up, it’s now time to say my piece on Chris Lytle. Lytle retired following a very exciting performance at "UFC on Versus 5", and much has been made about the way he retired: on top, having won five out of his last six with three stoppages.

    It’s that time once again: another major MMA event has come and gone, and it’s time for my unofficial “Best Performance of the Night” award. And you know what? Sometimes the most obvious choice can still be the best one. I’ve never hidden my fandom of Chris Lytle, in fact, I’ve used the term “original dark horse favorite” so many times in the last few days that I’ll do my best to only mention it again in my official farewell post to Chris Lytle. But there can be no doubt that Lytle’s...

    The UFC’s fifth event on Versus had everything you could have asked for and more, with a little bit of everything that makes MMA so special and worth watching.

    When Chris Lytle handed UFC President Dana White a sealed envelope at yesterday’s weigh-ins, MMA fans everywhere began speculating on what its contents may have been. Now there’s an answer. According to NBC Sports, Lytle is hanging up his gloves after UFC Live 5 in order to focus on his family and other interests back home in Indiana. “I’ve been fighting since ’98, fighting forever, a lot of it is just that I’m not doing my responsibilities like I need to at home. I feel like I’m not being the...
