As soon as I saw what he did I was positive he tapped out. I posted it immediately on Dana White's and Joe Rogan's Twitter pages

I thought he tapped when I first saw it, but it really isn't Chris' style and he did only hit the mat once--so it could be caused by a lot of things--like he was trying to post up and he was hit and went a little limp etc. If he was tapping he probably would have at least hit the mat 3 times or until the ref stepped in. He's lucky though, because I could see a lot of refs stepping in at that moment.

He didn't tap out LOL.

I saw this on TV as well, and it LOOKED like he was tapping, but he wasn't even in a position to get tapped.

I am a huge Lytle fan but I did notice "the tap". I will watch it again later but I am positive he did tap for a second.

jus wached a few times in slow motion looks like after he gets rocked he maybe thinks about tapping but the hand only taps the mat once so i believe you have to tap the mat 2 or 3 times not sure, watching it live i did thought he tapped.

Looks like he was waving the ref away before he jumped in. No tapping there, he didn't even come close to hitting the mat.



that's exactly how i saw it. if you look closely, you can see that herb started to close in on the two fighters, and Lytle wanted to make sure that the fight wasn't going to be stopped so he signaled to herb.

As stated above, he didn't tap against anything.

I personally, watching it live, thought he was indecisive about using that arm to defend a punch coming under the chin or towards the back of the head, hence the arm movement, and then decided to stand.

Regardless, there doesn't have to be a reason like above for it, because he never tapped and wasn't in a position to be needing to tap.
