Lytle Wins at UFC 89 in a Thriller

Originally posted on

The welterweights kicked off UFC 89 on Saturday night in Birmingham, England, in ultra exciting fashion as Americans Chris Lytle and Marcus Davis picked up wins in each of their respective bouts with an unbelievable pace in both bouts.

Chris Lytle and Paul Taylor spoke to each other during the weigh-ins before their fight agreeing that they could easily put on a fight of the night performance and they did not disappoint in any way.

Both Lytle and Taylor came out early in the first round throwing heavy leather with each fighter connecting at different points scoring jabs, uppercuts, kicks and virtually any standing strike possible. Lytle seemed to land the bigger shots as he swung with seemingly everything he had with every punch, but Taylor was able to counter with strong kicks to the body and legs of his opponent.

The fight barely saw any ground action despite Lytle's obvious advantage in that area of the contest, but he wanted a standing war and that's exactly what the fans got for three straight rounds.

"I love the way Paul fights, he's a great fighter, I love him to death," Lytle said following the fight. "I love his style and that fight was exactly what I wanted. Me and him standing toe to toe and banging and that's what it was. It was awesome."
