Chris Lytle Fights Fires, Bas Rutten Cranks Necks

A funny thing happened while Ariel Helwani and I were interviewing Chris Lytle about his upcoming bout with Josh Koscheck at UFC 86. Lytle was at the firehouse, where he works as — surprise — a fireman, and in the middle of the interview he calmly explained that he had to go because there was a fire that needed fighting. As interviews go, that was a first. He came back later and explained what had happened, and also explained what it’s like to be fighting fires just a few days before fighting for the UFC. If that kind of thing interests you, head over to MMA Rated to listen to the radio show. The Lytle interview starts at around the thirty-five minute mark. Yeah, it’s basically a half-hour of us arguing over stuff up until then. That’s what happens when you don’t have a real job.

If that kind of thing doesn’t interest you, then maybe this will. Bas Rutten appeared on ESPN’s “MMA Live” to demonstrate the aptly-named “Exorcist” neck crank. It looks…unpleasant.

I just wanted to say that as a full-time firefighter and amateur mixed martial artist myself, Chris Lytle is such a role-model. Being able to maintain a full-time training schedule is difficult enough not to mention maintaining a full-time job. War Lytle I can't wait to see you fight Koscheck.

Funny thing about that exorcist move is that Kimbo tried it during his fight with JT. It failed
