UFC 116 Results: Chris Lytle Humanizes "The Immortal"

Sam NassarCorrespondent IJuly 4, 2010

Chris Lytle is the definition of a journeyman fighter.  Chris seems to be more on a hunt for good fights rather than glory or belts. Matt Brown is a serious competitor who always comes into his fights focused, angry and ready to inflict damage. 
These two fighters have met before but in this sport fighters are constantly re-inventing themselves.  The fight started with striking early with Lytle trying for his power punches and Brown working his crisp Muay Thai. 

Surprisingly, Brown worked it to the ground for a d’arce choke attempting to put Lytle’s “Lights Out.”  However, as long as there is still breath in him, Chris refuses to give up.  He weathered the storm and recovered position.

Lytle bounced back throwing strikes galore with bad intentions.  Brown attempted to mix up his game adding knees and kicks to try and catch the veteran slipping.  As usual Chris weathered the storm gaining top position and gained a submission that needs to be looked up in a Ju-Jitsu handbook.  Lytle secured a top position triangle choke as well as a straight armbar leaving his opponent screaming “I TAP.”  

Lytle declared himself worthy of the submission of the night bonus.  Lytle most likely will be getting a call from Fabricio Werdum congratulating him for being the second man to pull off a dual submission this month.
