Lytle has no Plans, Just Expects a Tough Fight

Originally posted on

When you think of potentially great fights, Marcus Davis against Chris Lytle has to be an exciting thought. Just like Davis, Lytle has been involved in a number of great fights, including his previous contest against Paul Taylor. That fight, as exciting as it was, may be an afterthought after he and Davis mix it up at UFC 93.

The interesting aspect of this fight is that both fighters have called the other out. But it's not the fact that they don't like each other. In fact, it's quite the opposite. They get along fine and have an extreme respect for each other. They both just know that this is just one of those fights that will have fans excited from start to finish.

Lytle is very excited about the prospect of getting in the cage with this type of fight on his hands. “This is the kind of fight I've been looking for, the kind of fight I like right now,” said Lytle in a recent interview with “So the second they gave me the opportunity to do it, I jumped all over it.”

The welterweight division has its share of large fighters like Georges St. Pierre, Thiago Alves, and Josh Koscheck. Weight is never an issue for, Lytle who doesn't lose an extreme amount of weight to make the 170-pound limit.

“It's usually pretty easy for me,” explained the Indiana native. “I'm not one of these guys who are losing 30 pounds. I usually lose around 15 to 16 pounds. Usually when I get there, I'm 10 pounds over, so that's just a matter of working out at the right times and limiting my water intake and then find a place to sweat out the last few pounds at the very end. It's not that big of a deal for me.”
