Chris Lytle Open To Being Late Injury Replacement


Chris “Lights Out” Lytle recently told Jake Chastain of BjPenn.Com Radio that he would be open to fighting in the octagon again as a last minute replacement.  He doesn’t believe he can spare the time away from his family to put in a full 8 week camp, however if the UFC needed him to fight on 1-14 days notice, he would love to return to fighting.


“I’ve made this comment to them before, I said, ‘Hey man, I’m not willing to put in eight weeks of training but if you called me and said, hey, I have this possible fight Chris. Somebody backed out and we need you in a week. We need you in five days, we need you here. I could take it. There’s a couple guys I do want to fight on short notice because I wouldn’t have to spend all that time away from my family and, like I said, I’m still training some, I still feel like I’m in good shape right now. And as veteran I know how to condition myself to where I could last three rounds. So, you never know. If you have something last minute, let me know. That’s the only way I could see it. If it was like two weeks before a fight or something, but you give me two months I don’t think I could…I mean, I can’t say never. ”


Although he  retired in August of 2011 to spend time with family and get involved in local politics, it appears that Lytle could be eyeing a possible fight opportunity when the UFC returns to his hometown of Indianapolis, IN on August 28th, 2013.
