Previewish – TUF 9 Finale – Kevin Burns vs. Chris Lytle

June 18, 2009

When there are UFC events, I’m going to do short previews for every single fight on the card individually. It’ll be a great chance to try and get to know the lesser known guys that fill out the spaces in the PPV shows that are created after quick stoppages. Sometimes, they make the PPV worth the buy.

Kevin “Bertrand” Burns (7-2) vs. Chris “Lights Out” Lytle (26-17-5)

Welterweights

ChrisLytleBurns middle name is Bertrand. That’s not his nickname. Sorry for the confusion. Burns is 2-1 in the UFC. He dropped his last fight to Anthony Johnson at the TUF 8 finale. The Johnson fight was a rematch from UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin. Johnson was poked in the eye multiple times before Burns finished him.

Chris Lytle has a few more fights under his belt. In addition to his 13-1-1 boxing record, he’s had 48 MMA bouts. He originally fought in the UFC 9 years ago at UFC 28. That was a day or two ago. He appeared on TUF 4 where he lost to Matt Serra in the finale. Yeah, he’s been around. 4 of his last 5 fights won Fight of the Night honors. The one that didn’t ended with him looking like that.
