gotta disagree here, Koscheck will probably control the ground, but i doubt we will see him finish lytle, Hughes could do much damage on top, and lytle is pretty hard to hurt on the bottom, plus he is a tough SOB. Stand up wise i dont think koscheck should stand there too long, IMO lytle is very agressive, and Koscheck isnt too technical to say the least. so i say Koscheck UD.

I'm starting to like Chris "Lights Out" Lytle and I've always hated Josh Koscheck.

I'm all for Chris Lytle implementing his new aggressive style against Josh Koscheck.

I have a feeling Koscheck will probably play this one safely and ground n' pound this one out to a decision.

Word for word how I see it going as well. I would rather see Lytle take the W though.

if Lytle can land a good punch the fight can be defined at that moment, otherwise Kos will do a lot of wrestling and LnP en route to a UD via "octagon control"

Im going with Lytle on this one. but IMO, this fight can go either way. If KOS succeeds in TD and Controls Lytle, KOS has it in the bag. But don't Lytle Lightly. Stand up, Toughness, Submission game goes to Lytle. If Lytle puts pressure on KOS and avoids the TD's, it's probably gonna go his way.

Lytle Round 2 Submission

IF Kos wins it will be a UD, he won't be able to outstrike Chris...but he can outwrestle him I bet. I sure hope Lytle wins though...I hate Kos!!!

Lytle Round 2 Submission



Don't take Lytle Lightly.....I like it, has a nice ring to it. I agree, he shouldn't be taken Lytley , he is a tough dude and definitely has the ability to pull off the upset. I think to call a win for him by submission is a stretch, as I think his best chance to win this fight is via a TKO/KO.

my fave 2 170s. this sucks. i see kos possibly standing with him for a bit but then going for wrestling. lytle is tough and very good in all areas but wrestling hasnt shown to be that great. he has better standup and subs but kos can control him like hughes did but hopefully there will be more action then that fight. they just let hughes lay there and hopefully this wont be like that

if kos keeps taking opponents down and waiting for the bell he's going to end up in a bad situation where nobody wants to see him fight but hopefully he can keep it interesting if he takes this one down
