UFC 116: Forget the main event, 'Lights Out' wants you to remember 'Lytle vs Brown'

Quoteworthy:

"I thought it was going to be an easy fight (the first time) and that wasn’t the case. [Matt Brown] was tough. I didn’t know what to expect out of him, but he was coming after me. He’s gonna try and knock me out and I’m gonna try to knock him out. That’s the kind of fights I want and (the UFC) gave me a guy I really wanted to fight. He’s improved just because of the experience he’s gained alone. He’s explosive and confident and he’s gonna come after me the same way I’m going after him. I like to fight on the big cards. I want people to be like ‘That main event was cool, but the real fight was the Lytle vs. Brown match.’ This fight should have everything. If you don’t like this, I don’t know why you’re watching."

Electrifying welterweight strikers Chris Lytle and Matt Brown will throw leather on the upcoming UFC 116: "Lesnar vs. Carwin" fight card on July 3 in Las Vegas in a bout that "Lights Out" is expecting to steal the show. "The Immortal" was choked out by the Indiana native when they met under the UFL banner back in 2007 and wants to not only get his revenge, but also be the first person to knock Lytle out. Will it remain standing long enough for that to happen? Or will Brown find his way on the wrong end of a slick submission much like Brian Foster did at UFC 110?
