All Lytle did was try to neutralize Matt he did nothing offensive.
Im in total agreement on you with this. Matt showed his dominance on the ground. I'm glad we saw the old Matt return I think it might have been the fans who wish nothing but a knockout from UFC competitors that drove him to lose his belt in the first place. He was constantly moving not just laying holding him down a'la Kos would have done. And all Lytle could resort to was a guillotin trying to hold Matt down.
As far as Dana goes I don't know about him any more. He talks trash on many occasions about Pride Fighters and then doesn't put his money where his mouth is. Who cares if Wanderlei lost; his a great fighter and that truly is MMA going up against someone who is going to challenge you. And you know what unlike UFC, Pride doesn't care about a tarnished record they want pure competition. Take a look at Diaz lost a couple of fights and is gone in the UFC, foolish on Dana's part to let that happen.
In Dana's eyes MMA is nothing but a $$$ sign. And he won't ever see the competition in it.
