The UFC Heads Back to Indiana, August 28th

August is turning out to be a big month for Midwest MMA fans. UFC 164 has already been announced for August 31st in Milwaukee, WI and today MMA Junkie reports that just a few days prior, the UFC will hold the first UFC on Fox Sports event at the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Wednesday, August 28th.

“UFC and Bankers Life Fieldhouse officials on Saturday night announced the promotions plans to return to the venue, with tickets scheduled to go on sale June 14. Ticket prices and on-sale details will be announced in the coming weeks,” Junkie reports.

No one seems to have a line on official or rumored match ups for the card but we’re betting the UFC isn’t setting up a rematch between Frank Mir and Mirko “Cro Cop”. The last time the UFC visited Indy, back in 2010, they made good money – selling nearly 16,000 tickets for a gate of over $1.5 million – but few were happy with the action.

Dana White was so upset with headliner Frank Mir’s effort that, even though Mir beat “Cro Cop” with the only KO of the night, he didn’t get a knock out of the night, bonus. So, it wasn’t that awesome of a card.

But, Indiana home town kid Chris Lytle did win his rematch against Matt Serra at that event, however. The Fireman/Politician/Octagon Human Highlight Reel is retired but has told this writer that he’d return for a one-off bout under the right circumstances.

What do you say, nation? Want to see “Lights Out” back in action? If so, who would you match him up against?

- Elias Cepeda

Nevaeh. true that Melissa`s st0rry is surprising, on friday I bought a great new Citro├źn 2CV from making $8633 this-past/4 weeks and-even more than, 10 grand this past-month. without a question it is the nicest-job Ive ever done. I began this three months/ago and straight away began to bring in more than $84 per hour. I use the details on this web-site,======grand4.com=====

I like the way Lytle retired and I'd hate to see him come back and screw it all up by losing. Quit while you're ahead Chris, you did the right thing first time.

F'yeah! If he's game, I would love to see him fight. Maybe another fight with Matt Brown? (even though he has already beat him twice). Or let him avenge his loss to Diaz?

If Lytle is going to fight again, give him an immediate title shot against GSP. Not just for the (albeit impossible) possibility of the greatest tear-jerking upset victory ever, but also to watch Johny Hendricks lose his god damn mind for getting passed over again. Either of those scenarios are an epic win in my book.

Matt Serra, obviously.
