Chris Lytle -
 
I cannot express how happy and proud I am to know you, call you a friend and mentor.  Your work ethic and gamness were something that we as a gym/team hung our hats on and everyday you made sure we kept to the standards you set. 

I know you'll be in the gym when committments don't hold you back but I feel like I need to tell you that I promise you that I will represent Integrated with as much class, dignity and respect as you and the founders have for so long.  I know Im not a posterboy for PC and I'm prone to doing dumb shit from time to time but I will carry your flag with as much integrity and pride as I can. I promise.  I'll teach what I can and continue to learn what I can until this lovely sport sends me packing. 

You changed my life for the better and the interest you've taken in my development is more flattering and inspiring than I am able to express right now.  I truly hope to show the world what you seem to see in me and if I can get close to it than I will have outperformed even my own lofty expectations. 

Enjoy you what you've worked so hard to build and while you're out living the dream, I'll be holding it down.


Respectfully,

Matt Mitrione

It was nice to see a guy like Chris Lytle get to go out on such a high note. Fight sports generally aren't that kind to it's combatants, you're usually chewed up and spit out. Everything I've ever heard about the guy backs up exactly what Matt is saying here.

The fact that Mr. Mitrione is connected to a guy like Lytle only makes me like him all the more. Good luck to you Matt with Kongo.

War Meathead. F*** TUF editors. This guy walks the walk and is a talented guy. He also seems to have learned a great deal from Lytle. Stay classy and humble Meathead! War Mittrione! Phone Post

 Like they said, classy stuff. That was a kind gesture to a legend of the game, and more importantly a truly good person. I  wish you and Chris the best.

I've been a big Chris Lytle fan since first watching him and Robbie Lawler beat the hell out of each other. Always thought he was incredbily well-rounded and was obviously tough as nails.

I have to admit that I teared up a little watching him with his kids in the ring after the fight. * turning in my Man-Card now *

How many times do we get to see a fighter with such class go out on his terms like that?

Great post, Matt. I really enjoy watching you fight and look forward to seeing you carry on in his footsteps.

MUCH Respect!
