Chris Lytle posted on Twitter late Tuesday night that he was denied in his bid to reach the Indiana State Senate for District 28. Lytle retired from the UFC after going 5-1 in his last six fights to spend more time with his family and run for office.
“Almost,” wrote Lytle. “I finished 2nd. It was a good fight.”
Lytle’s last fight came in 2011 against Dan Hardy, a bout he won. He earned six Fight of the Night honors during his career.
