"I think it would be awesome. I know exactly how he feels. He wants to go out there and fight. Just get out there and bang. He didn't get to do that in his last fight and I'm all about it. Let's do it!"

UFC Welterweight scrap machine Chris Lytle tells Duane Finley that he accepts Dan Hardy's challenge with open arms. After Hardy lost a lopsided decision to Anthony Johnson he posted on his Twitter account that he was disappointed and wanted to face an opponent who was looking to actually fight him. He then went on to address "Mr. Lytle" directly and now "Lights Out" has answered back. Lytle has been vocal throughout his career that he is only interested in fighting opponents who come into the octagon with the intention to fight him and with Hardy having lost three straight, the British slugger's back is against the wall. A potential matchup between two of the division's most exciting stand-up fighters would certainly produce fireworks and now it is up to the UFC to make it happen.

Sounds like a great idea for a Fight Night main event or co-main event.

There's a good chance, yeah. But there's also a good chance we see a slugfest of epic proportions.

lytle is gonna stand and bang for a good part of this fight, but u will see him go for a couple of takedowns, I'm glad to hear this especially because of the rumours of lytle retiring, hardy needs to be careful or he will def get his walking papers if he loses this fight

...and Lytle will take him down and finish him by submission 30 seconds into round 1.

Doubt that. Hardy is pretty tough to sub. See GSP fight and Rumble fight.

I'm not sure Hardy thought this through.

Lytle has much better submission skills then GSP & Rumble.

Dan Hardy submission losses- 3 (9%)
Dan Hardy win ratio- 72%
Chris Lytle win ratio- 56%
Hardy's toughest competition- GSP
Lytle's toughest competition- Koscheck (debatably)


I'm not sure Lytle thought this through.
