The now-retired Chris Lytle did well on his bid to go out on a high note when he submitted Dan Hardy in their UFC on Versus 5 main event. The tough feeling of being away from family for training seemed to hit a high point prior to the fight and the 13-year veteran decided to call it quits, putting a close to an exciting career of more than a decade.

The ending seemed perfect, especially with Lytle’s opponent willing to trade with him for the duration of the fight. The fans in Milwaukee certainly got a treat with seeing Lytle put a close to his career with a guillotine choke, but it’s time for him to move on and start a career in politics.

MMAWeekly.com‘s Damon Martin caught up with an emotional Lytle after his fight and talked about his career, as well as how the win was something straight out of a movie script.

    Chris Lytle has always been one of my favorite fighters to watch compete.He is the type of fighter who always puts on good fights,regardless if he wins or loses the fight,he gives it all…Which is a lot.

    I’m glad he won his last fight,especially the way he stayed in the pocket,trading punches with little regard for his opponents offense,all while he dished out more then he received!
    I would vote for Lytle,if only he lived in California

    Great night of fights!

    9/14 fights in the ufc had bonuses attached to them and last night’s was a double.

    seriously exciting and humble guy, wish him all the best in his future.

    The guy is amazing and it’s sad to see him go, but I’m glad he left on his own terms.
