Chris Lytle's Indiana Senate run came up a bit short.

Lytle, who retired from the UFC this past year after a long and productive fighting career, lost the Republican bid for a state Senate nomination in District 28.

In Tuesday's three-horse race, Lytle (30 percent of the vote) finished behind winner Mike Crider (41 percent) but ahead of John Merlau (29 percent).

"Almost," Lytle tweeted on Tuesday after the vote tallies. "I finished 2nd. It was a good fight."

Unlucky Lytle. He seems such a good person and role model he would do well in this kind of position.

I'd understand Lytle not wanting to come back. He went out the best way he possibly could have but this is a fight I've wanted to see at Welterweight since Penn fought St.Pierre the 2nd time. It could easily be an FX headliner later on this year. 1 more match Lytle

Chris Lytle makes every fight exciting.

I'd tune in to watch him fight a cold.

No way Penn takes that fight (as good fun as it sounds)

I think it will take a Nick Diaz rematch to get BJ back in the Octagon.
