Another bout is now rumored to be added to the growing card for the June Finale of “The Ultimate Fighter 9: US v. UK. Veteran welterweight Chris “Lights Out” Lytle will square off against Kevin “The Fire” Burns. According to a report at MMAWeekly.com both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout, and the contracts are expected to be signed soon.
Coming off of a disappointing loss to Marcus Davis at UFC 93, the Indianapolis firefighter Lytle will surely be looking to put out “The Fire”. Since losing to Matt Serra in the finale for “The Ultimate Fighter 4” Lytle has compiled a 4-4 record, alternating wins and losses in his last five fights.
Burns last fought at the TUF 8 finale, suffering a vicious knock out loss to Anthony Johnson in their fight to “redo” Burns’ controversial victory over Johnson at UFC Fight Night 14. Burns made his promotional debut at UFC 85 with an upset victory over highly touted Roan Carneiro, and now holds 2-1 UFC record and 7-2 professional MMA record.
