In case you missed it last night. Here are ESPN's highlights from the UFC on Versus 5 main event bout between Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle. This was Lytle's last UFC bout, and they also won a $65,000 Fight of the Night bonus, so watching the full fight is definitely a must. Check out the finish.
Here's Brent Brookhouse's Play-by-Play from the event's live blog:
Chris Lytle vs. Dan Hardy - Round 1 - Lytle with a right hand and then goes to the body. Both men landing some heavy shots early. Hardy probably landed the hardest shot of the round. Lytle is being a touch more consistent in going to the body and now wings an overhand right. Two solid shots land for Lytle. Hardy is getting hit a bit more cleanly but he is still having his moments. Lytle is probably doing enough to take the round with one minute left. 10-9 Lytle. Fun round.
Round 2- Back to the stand-up and Hardy hurts Lytle a bit and backs him up. Hard right hand by Hardy buckles the legs of Lytle. Now Lytle pushes him into the care. Now it's Lytle throwing huge hooks back at Hardy after an accidental eye poke. Big uppercut by Hardy and then a knee. Hardy with a takedown attempt for absolutely no reason and Lytle keeps it standing. More big shots by Hardy and this is his round with 1:40 left. Huge right hand by Lytle just misses and a left hand lands. Body shot by Lytle. Hardy with an overhand right and a body kick. Nice body punch by Lytle. 10-9 Hardy to even it up.
Round 3 - Both guys continue to throw. Lytle with a left hook that lands clean and then a beautiful body shot. Left hook by Lytle again. The left hook is landing with a bit more regularity. Lytle continues working over the body with punches and kicks. Hardy is firing back but Lytle is getting the better of this round as far as I'm concerned. Lytle lands some nice shots and now Hardy pushes in and gets a takedown for no reason. Lytle locks in a guillotine choke and Hardy has to tap out. What the hell was Hardy thinking shooting there? Chris Lytle wins by submission (guillotine choke), round 3.
