Damn, Lytle will be missed. One of my favourite fighters and a tough sob. I can't wait to watch the card tonight. It'll be something special.



Always a pleasure to watch Lytle fight.

dang, i always liked to see Lytle's name on a card. his fights were always pretty good. he always brings a fight. i was rooting for him over Hardy anyways but now i really want him to win. get 1 last W on his record. i wish him nothing but luck on his future endeavors.

That's what I thought. Made me change my pick to Hardy though.

I've always liked watching Lytle fight. No doubt he'll be bringing it tonight. I just hope the knee injury has fully healed and he has one last gem left in him. I originally had Hardy, but switched to Lytle after hearing the retirement talk, even with him claiming to keep the fight standing. Hardy will have a big reach advantage but I'm hoping Lytle will get inside and land some bombs.

Read the last sentence of the article.

I agree with him.... but:

I enjoy seeing sick submissions, vicious ground and pound, and fast/technical striking matches just as much as I enjoy sloppy brawls.

Lytle is capable of all those things and only ever attempts to give us one of them. Still one of my favorite fighters. I'm not trying to bash.
