Although Chris Lytle retired from professional mixed martial arts in 2011, it may not be the end of his career in professional combat sports:


Retired UFC welterweight Chris Lytle (31-18-5 MMA, 10-10 UFC), who at 39 years old hasn’t competed since August 2011, is reportedly in negotiations for a boxing match against current World Boxing Union cruiserweight champion Roy Jones Jr.

Ariel Helwani revealed the plans on Wednesday’s new edition of “UFC Tonight,” stating that Lytle is “very hopeful” that a 10-round, 175-pound contest can be scheduled for later this year.

While his experience pales in comparison to that of Jones, Lytle wouldn’t enter the boxing ring as a complete neophyte. “Lights Out” boxed professionally 15 times from 2002 to 2005, earning an impressive 13-1-1 record that included seven knockouts. Of course, the totality of that run comprises of 74 rounds of boxing compared to the 448 rounds Jones Jr. has amassed while building a 57-8 record in the sport.

Lytle is reportedly pursuing just the one boxing appearance before calling it a career in combat sports. MMA is not currently in his plans.

I don't like the sound of this. Lytle might have professional boxing credentials, but it's like if the San Jose Earthquakes scrimmaged Real Madrid. Their experience and talent level don't compare very well.

Why does RJJ want to box MMA fighters and not boxers?

when jones jr faces boxers these days he tends to get sparked out.

exhibition boxing matches against guys from other sports might be a safer way for him to earn a living.
