Chris Lytle meets Kevin Burns at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale in June

Originally posted on

Following his January split-decision loss to Marcus Davis in a highly anticipated UFC 93 bout, veteran UFC welterweight Chris Lytle (26-17-5 MMA, 5-9 UFC) will return to action against Kevin Burns (7-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale.

Sources close to both fighters told ( bout agreements were distributed today and are in the process of being finalized.

The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale takes place June 20 at The Pearl in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. It airs on Spike TV.

The live finale concludes the ninth season of "The Ultimate Fighter," which debuts April 1 with a "U.S. vs. U.K." theme.

Following his loss to Davis, Lytle is now 2-3 in his past five fights. However, the pro boxer, who was "The Ultimate Fighter 4" welterweight runner-up, is a crowd-pleaser who – despite his mediocre record in the octagon – has remained a fixture in the UFC since UFC 28.
