Chris Lytle joins FOX analyst team


Last week Chael Sonnen was released from his broadcast contract with the UFC and FOX, leaving an empty space for an analyst. Today the UFC announced that Chris Lytle will serve as an analyst for Wednesday's UFC Fight Night 45: Cerrone vs. Miller:

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.
UFC on FOX analysts Kenny Florian, Daniel Cormier and host Karyn Bryant welcome former UFC welterweight contender Chris Lytle to the analyst desk as he makes his debut at the UFC FIGHT NIGHT WEIGH-IN on Tuesday, July 15 and works the PREFIGHT and POSTFIGHT coverage on FOX Sports 1 as well. Jon Anik and Brian Stann call the fights on FOX Sports 1 live from the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, while Victor Dávila and Fabricio Werdum call the action for FOX Deportes.

The press release did not specify whether or not this is a trial run, one-time event, or a permanent addition to the team.

excellent decision. I got to meet him at the Expo last week and we chatted politics for a minute. Super articulate and will be a great addition.
