Chris Lytle Career

Lytle began training for a fight in 1998, stating “something to keep me active” as his motivation. In addition to his full-time work as a firefighter, he trains part-time at single-discipline facilities rather than MMA camps. He has won championships in Hook N’ Shoot, Absolute Fighting Championship, and Cage Rage World Welterweight. He won the Indiana state boxing championship at 175 pounds, saying, “By the end of 2004, I expect to have won a few smaller boxing titles.”

Lytle was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 4 on Spike in 2006, where he defeated Pete Spratt & Din Thomas to advance to the welterweight final. Matt Serra defeated Lytle by a split decision on November 11 in The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale. Serra locked up and used foot stomps until he acquired takedowns; at this point, he became the more active fighter, with Lytle holding guard & appearing to wait for the referee to stand the fight up. Three judges scored the fight 30–27 for Serra, and one judge scored it 30–27 for Lytle, but despite the tallies, the contest was extremely close.

Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes defeated him unanimously on March 3 at UFC 68 in Columbus, Ohio. On July 7, 2007, Lytle fought Jason Gilliam at UFC 73. In the first round, Lytle controlled the fight’s pace and ultimately took Gilliam to the ground. Lytle applied effort from the top position and finally secured an inverted triangle choke from the top position. He used an inverted armbar to Gilliam’s open arm to win the fight, causing him to submit. On August 11, 2007, at a United Fight League tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana, Lytle defeated Matt Brown with a guillotine hold in the second round.

On August 14, 2011, Lytle faced former UFC welterweight title contender Dan Hardy at UFC on Versus 5. Chris Lytle stated at the weigh-ins that he would retire regardless of the fight’s outcome. Regarding his retirement, Chris said, “I don’t feel like the kind of father I want to be. I have four children and frequently experience a crushing feeling of regret for not being present when I should be.

Lytle concluded his MMA career with a victory and a 10–10 record in the UFC by submitting Hardy with a guillotine choke in the third round after utilizing his superior boxing to earn early success. The performance earned Lytle the Fight of the Night, Submission of the Night awards and a 2012 Softail Blackline motorcycle from Harley-Davidson.
