With Chael Sonnen being fired from Fox Sports and longtime UFC Welterweight, Chris Lytle joining the team, Lytle shared how the deal came about:

“I’ve had this planned for a month-and-a-half,” he told MMAjunkie Radio. “I’ve been trying to get this in the works, and then all of a sudden, the thing happens with Chael and they say I’m coming in as his replacement. That’s not the case.

“People think that I’m doing this because Chael is gone. I was actually supposed to be on the broadcast with Chael, and then last-minute, he’s not going to be there any more. So it’s not quite that I’m being brought in to fill his shoes, because that would be a difficult task.”

“But I’ll be honest, I don’t know everything like I should. So I’ve really been on a crash course.”

Lytle will be making his debut as an analist starting tonight for UFC Fight Night 45. He will be doing FOX Sports 1′s pre- and post-event coverage of the event in Atlantic City, N.J.
