I called the fight 29-28 UD for Lytle (before the official result)
IMO, this was a really sloppy fight and was appalled when Rogan was giving it props. Let's all give props to a technically sloppy fight
griffin bonnar came to mind as i watched it, and just because it got sloppy takes nothing away from it IMO. i dont need to have every fight be two guys crisply striking and showing great scrambles, if two guys are out there and lay it all on the line like these two did thats about as good as it gets in this sport. just because we are die hard fans of the sport, i dont think the fights that make the casual viewer excited should make us any less so.
i wouldnt have been up in arms if it went the other way, both guys were just unloading the whole time. i thought lytle did enough to win, but i wouldnt have been surprised if taylor stole it somehow at the end(rememeber bisping hammill, the judges tend to like hometown boys). great fight, was really fun to watch, especially since i had a few people there that dont watch mma, and both guys are going to be sore as HELL today.
