Sad day :(

MILWAUKEE - On the eve of his UFC Live on Versus 5 fight against Dan Hardy, Chris "Lights Out" Lytle has decided that Sunday night's bout will be his last.

The popular welterweight exclusively informed NBCSports.com of his decision Saturday evening.

"I've been fighting since '98, fighting forever, a lot of it is just that I'm not doing my responsibilities like I need to at home," he said. "I feel like I'm not being the type of dad I want to. I got four kids and lots of times I feel just an immense sense of guilt for not being there in times when I should."

 I hope he comes out and wins by super slick sub in the opening seconds and goes home with one last Sub of the Night bonus.

For those wondering, that paper Lytle handed Dana at the weigh-ins was his retirement and thank you letter.

MonsterBalls - Some of you guys don't understand what stand and wang means. Guys like Lytle and Hardy are stand up fighters so when they do it they are doing what they are supposed to. Guys that "wang" it are guys that belong on the ground but instead stand up and Wang it.

 Has Lytle ever finished a fight on the feet? He has finished many on the ground. I think he's a much better submission fighter than striker.
