Let's make it perfectly clear: Chris Lytle has no plans to come out of retirement.

After a recent storybook ending to a memorable UFC career, Lytle is focused on an Indiana State Senate run and spending more time with his family.

But admittedly, when he heard UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre had scratched from this weekend's UFC 137 event and that Carlos Condit might be without an opponent, he briefly entertained the idea of a comeback.

So there's still that itch to get back in the cage?

"Actually there is," Lytle recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I really didn't realize it that much until a few weeks ago. I heard Carlos Condit was going to fight GSP and GSP got injured, and I was thinking, "Hmmm, I'm not doing anything that day.'

"But I haven't been training or anything. I've been running for state Senate. That's keeping me really busy. I've been disappointed with how little I've been able to get into the gym. I've been able to get in there a little bit but not as much as I like."

If Lytle had been training or fought Condit when he was still fighting. That would have been a good fight.

Probably a good thing he didn't do it. If Carlos would have agreed, I think he would have beat Lytle pretty handily, full training camp in all.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Thankfully he didn't go for it. He had the perfect retirement. No reason to ruin it by losing to Condit.

Lytle did have a good ending to his career. Unlike many fighters who tend to fade into obscurity toward the end, Lytle actually came out on top with only a small blemish prior to his last fight with Hardy.

You had a good and solid career, Lytle. Stay away and good luck in your race to become State Senator.

Lytle would have made a fight of it but I agree, Condit would have beat him by UD
