Chris Lytle thinking retirement, fought with knee injury

Wow. Just wow. Sad day if he actually retires. And sucks that he fought on a bum knee. Wish he just would have pulled out of the fight.

*Mental injury* - that was his biggest problem going into this fight.
He had high hopes in fighting Codit, especially with Condit's named being mentioned in the same sentence as "title shot", after the Hardy fight.

Lytle had good reasons to believe that a win over Condit would get him very close to a title fight.

But a win against Ebersole, wouldn't have meant anything for his title hopes. I think he *disconnected* when he found out Condit pulled out.
But of course, he can't/won't admit it!

.



BELIEVE!

so he lies about having knee surgery instead??


im not buying that. He could have said a bunch of way easier to conceal injuries than that, nevermind surgery. I believe he had knee surgery.

Yah. There was simply no upsides for Chris to fight that guy. To lose to such an unorthodox fighter too, sucked the wind out of em physically and mentally. Chris worked hella hard to get there. It's like Ebersole just collected all of his (Chris) wins.

He had that rare ability of being one of the most humblest (sincere, not front) dudes you would find while at the same time had the ability to tear an arm or knock your head off. Definitely one of my favorite fighters. If true I'm gonna miss the fastball rights.
