UFC veteran Chris Lytle lost his bid to win the Republican state Senate nomination in Indiana on Tuesday. He came in second with 30 percent of the vote behind Mike Crider who had 41 percent.

Lytle's last MMA bout was a win over Dan Hardy in August. He announced his retirement just before the bout, then won by a submission. His campaign started less than a month after the bout.

Lytle earned a record of 31-18-5 and picked up $515,000 in fight night bonuses during his 12-year fight career.

 I will offer my services to Lytle as a consultant for free if he chooses to take another run for public office in 2014.

You're lucky fighters tend to keep their politics to themselves then. Most of these guys are college athletes who end up succeeding based on their own hard word. Their merit. A toxic notion to a liberal.Nobody can hand unearned success to a professional athlete.

I hope he develops more and wins next time. Stay involved and get stuff done, then the office will be there.

Ha, no, definitely not a Ron Paul fan. While I see why his positions on social issues is attractive to people who aren't all that informed on his real policies, he's really just a die hard advocate of an unfettered free market, and history has shown what that leads to (hello financial crisis).But I digress...I think Lytle is actually far less conservative than a Ron Paul - and maybe he would have been ok - hard to believe any politician these days.

Impressive for someone with no public experience.

 Damn, he should have asked me to manage his campaign.  I would have given him a discount.
