Chris Lytle to join UFC on FOX Analyst Panel
With Chael Sonnen being handed his pink slip last week a void was left at the desk of the fight analysts. Enter retired mixed martial artist, Chris “Lights Out” Lytle.
Lytle left the sport with a win over Dan Hardy back in 2011 but will now take his talent and knowledge of the sport and make use of them as an analyst for at least one UFC on FOX event. It is uncertain if this will be a permanent move for Lytle (31-18).
The Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) is bringing the Octagon® back to Atlantic City for a clash of top-10 ranked lightweights at UFC FIGHT NIGHT: CERRONE vs. MILLER live on FOX Sports 1 on Wednesday, July 16 (9:00 PM ET), headlined by No. 6-ranked Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone against No. 7-ranked and New Jersey’s own Jim Miller.
