‘UFC on Versus 5′ Main Event Notes: Hardy Won’t Be Fired, Lytle Retires With $130,000 in Bonuses and a New Motorcycle


(If only our last day at the office could be this satisfying. Also, what’s up with the little bunny on Dan’s shorts? Photo courtesy of UFC.com)

After Dan Hardy tapped to a Chris Lytle guillotine choke last night at UFC on Versus 5 — Hardy’s fourth consecutive loss within the Octagon — many fans assumed that the Outlaw would be released by the UFC to get a couple of tune-up wins somewhere else. But Hardy doesn’t have to start updating his resume just yet. UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta confirmed via Twitter that Hardy won’t be cut. His reasoning: “I like guys that WAR!!!”

That’s great news for the former welterweight title contender. The question is, does Hardy even want another chance? Winless since 2009, Hardy appears to be in no rush to get back on the horse. As he told MMA Junkie:

I think if they are going to give me one more fight, then I really need to take some time and come back reinvented…There are a lot of things I can do. But right now, I need space from competing, and I need space in the gym getting beaten up by much better guys in every area. I’ll either improve or find another way. If I’ve got one more fight, then I’ll take one more fight. But maybe it won’t be for a little while…

I think I had the quickest rise and the quickest fall the UFC’s ever seen – four fights up, four fights down. But there were improvements to make. I know that. I just don’t think between fights I’ve really had the time to invest in working on those particular things. I know I’ve got it in me to learn them…

I think my head’s elsewhere to be honest. I’m going to step back a little bit and take some time — just enjoy being in the gym for a little while and see where the future takes me…I’ll see where my life takes me after a couple of days off. I think I just need to really dedicate the time to it and either come back in a blaze of glory and make a run for the belt or do something else. I’m not sure yet.”

Coincidentally, Lytle’s farewell win over Hardy brought both of their UFC records to the .500 mark. Of course, Lytle’s story couldn’t be more different than Hardy’s, as he now leaves the sport with an impressive victory, and joins the very short list of fighters who went out on top. Making the moment even sweeter is the $130,000 in bonus money that Lights Out made for his efforts. $65,000 performance bonuses for UFC on Versus 5 were distributed to the following fighters…

Fight of the Night: Chris Lytle and Dan Hardy for their main event slugfest, which lived up to its billing and then some.

Submission of the Night: Chris Lytle again, beating out Ed Herman, Jimy Hettes, and Cole Miller, who also scored submission victories during the prelims.

Knockout of the Night: Donald Cerrone, for his first-round mollywopping of Charles Oliveira.

Chris Lytle’s two final UFC bonuses once again make him the most bonus-worthy fighter in UFC history, with 10 overall bonuses and a whopping $515,000 in career bonus money. Oh yeah, and he also won a 2012 Harley-Davidson Blackline for defeating Hardy. Beats the hell out of gold watch, doesn’t it?

That damp basement is a perfect replica and looks just like the one in "The Silence of the Lambs!"
.
I was gonna try to get witty with a quote, but there was simply too many good ones to chose from for poor agent 2DaDeath.
.
I's sure he will know exactly which one was my favorite.

damn, Xeno sure is wordy. @2DaDeath - Don't do man, you'll end up tied up in a damp basement somewhere, having all of your old CP posts being read back to you.

CP - still looks like Michael J. Fox is doing the captcha
Morningwood- August 16, 2011 at 8:00 am
I can't even get a free cage potato t-shirt. I must be as low on CP as I am in life...Although I did get an honorable mention in the caption contest once. It's really the little things that keep me going.
dranokills- August 16, 2011 at 6:37 am
Love me some Dan hardy, guys jut class.


Really...who is actually reading anything sheenaphone is writing?
really? who?
I can't believe that fucking troll is still here.
2DaDeath- August 16, 2011 at 2:01 am
$100 and lotto tickets? It's nice to know what being a "senior member" can get me.

So Xeno, you want to take me out for dinner and drinks and lotto tickets so that you can try to convince me about just how awesome you used to be? Wow. That is just a terrible fucking idea. No thanks.
XENOPHON- August 15, 2011 at 11:27 pm
@2DaDeath

LOL - Pushups first, you got to be kidding! Your the who said: "I don’t believe you when you say you had anything to do with anything. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone with that sentiment."
.
Now this is your chance to be the leader of the pack. Show the rest of this group a little esprit de corps. Like back in
UFC 1. Just show up and see what happens. All I am asking for is for you to name a place and time, no threats. You do live in San Clemente don't you? Or did you just put that on your CP profile?
.
Get serious, in the 80's there was no camera built into any cell phones. Fucking pagers had just began being sold to the public. Don't mistake the OC in the mid 80's. It was not the same thing as Dana White pretending to slam dance at the edge of the pit with 100 security officers ringed around him to ensure no one got a bump or a bruise.
.
The last thing anyone ever thought of during a back yard gig of 1945 w/ the gong, was to take a picture. Most were more concerned about when the cops would arrive, was the keg still flowing, and which chick from across town was willing to do a tag team with her friend in the bathroom.

First you said you couldn't believe me. You actually called me out. Now its all shifted to being about providing you and all the forum a picture - as if they care.
.
Are you next going to want to see an authentic signature of the whole band smoking some dirt weed with me or the ticket stubs from the Nest? Give me break, only a poser is concerned with saving the moment.
.
A Polaroid Instamatic camera never made it into my stocking stuffer. If it did I would taken it to hawk shop for some gas money so I could make my way across the border to K-38, when it was still a dirt lot and Federale's could still be bribed with just a 10 spot.
.
If you drink Primo, then you likely spend your time at Ole's Tavern. Comm'on, I'll sweeten the pot for you. If your nervous I will go to your bar of choice, so you can have plenty of well placed back up.
.
On top of the $100 dollar tab I already stepped up to, and the free Lotto tickets, I'll throw in an original "DON'T BE SCARED HOMIE" T-shirt for you. If I don't hear from you in the 24 hours, I already know what color shirt to get cha, Yellow.

Ha! I need to see that movie eventually.

@ morningwood
It was a reference to Rebel Without A Cause.

@ xeno
Hmm... meet a stranger off the internet? Can I have a week to do a bunch of pushups first?

OK now in all seriousness, unless you have pictures of you with Social D in a backyard, you at Cuckoo's Nest, you at any of the places you've bragged about... we might as well not waste each others time. Proof. Words are worthless. On the internet AND in real life. Why don't you post all these pics on the forum and then we'll see if I let you take me out on the town. BTW, I drink Primo's.

xeno the laziest rapist ever
Morningwood- August 15, 2011 at 8:28 pm
Redping, wouldn't more then just 2DaDeath need to meet Xeno for us to know if he's a serial killer? And before you ask, I'm busy. So, I can't go!!
Morningwood- August 15, 2011 at 8:25 pm
Well Xeno, your statements probably mean your not going to like me either since I too like Tosh, and was once a security guard. Never worked at a Wal-mart. But, I sometimes chuckle at a good "fucked your mother in the ass joke." I don't use the "G" word, and used to watch the AWA, WWF, WWE, WCW, ECW, all that fake shit. That's all there was for wrestlers to watch before Jon Fitch.

Anyways, a lot of the commentators (ElGuapo, Fried Taco, Ben, Rex, RwilsonR, Jimbonics)on CP are typically pretty funny and I enjoy the site. They do have a way of keeping others inline too so they probably just think you fell out of line. Throw in a couple "Arianny is such an effing cunt jokes" and you'll probably win them all back! LOL!
Redping- August 15, 2011 at 8:01 pm
2DaDeath, you have to go meet up with Xenophon so we can know if he's a serial killer or not. Do it for your CP buddies
dthrckt- August 15, 2011 at 7:04 pm
holy shit, does anyone really have time to read all that. I started and realized I'd better go pluck my nose hair instead
XENOPHON- August 15, 2011 at 5:16 pm
@2DaDeath

I got an idea...since around here your considered a "senior member", you must have some juice, true? I can accept that.
.
Since we live so fucking close to one another, why don't we meet in person? If you live closer to Cypress Shores we can meet at Big Helyns. If you are close to "T" street, then lets meet at the Red Fox...we can run an open tab.
.
If your closer to 204's, Pico, or up in Talega I suggest we head north to the harbor, Turks is fine with me?
.
I'll you think the pier is neutral, that's good for me. Hell, to meet you in person, I'll even do Antoines for a kingboy steak and egg breakfast a couple cold beers - I got the entire tab covered bro.
.
What about it, I'm offering $100 bucks - and I'll thrown in some Lotto Tickets to meet you in person, and talk? Since we have no beef, and you hold such clout around here, you can come to your own opinion (I'll show up alone) and you can either vouch for me, or tell em all I am a douche that pusses out and does nothing but talks shit.
.
As there is always a smart way to settle any disagreement, let me know what you think sounds best?
XENOPHON- August 15, 2011 at 4:53 pm
@Morningwood
.
That's a fair question, here's my take. Let the others squawk.
.
I made some upfront statements and have a few dissenters. No foul, no harm. There are likely hundreds of members, and less than a dozen of them have a problem. I suspect most of these few are in real life flunkies, so it doesn't matter.
.
One has the theme song to WWE has their favorite tune, another follows some clown named "danieltosh" on twitter, another is a woman masquerading as a man, and into state of the art hair removal products. Although like most females I've pissed off in the past, I've been given second chance (GRIN).

The biggest fuck of them all has a half-ass'ed website pronouncing his marketing finesse. I suspect he his actually one of Dana White's paid fluffer's out to pump and protect the image of the UFC.
.
Let's just keep it real for a few minutes, it's not all that hard to become a believer in the UFC, as I see these hapless born-again's do it daily. Aside from 2 people I know for a fact fight for living on this website, when looking at most of these punks screen they sound like the citizen band handles of teen ager X-Box 360 geeks.
.
Most of the same post at the oddest hours, so they own a 4G Android and work part-time as Pinkerton security guard, or they stock shelves at the local Walmart superstore, use their phones while hiding in the shitter out of the watchful view of the floor set lead person.
.
And the biggest fake of all without doubt has to be the asshole located in the Philippines. He is no doubt one of the millions of gooks you connect to over the phone that claim to be expert level help. As we all know 99% of the time the same can't ever fix a simple problem. To make it more amazing they always have all your account information directly in front of them.

The proof is in the posts or replies of the few, most can't take a conversation into anything with depth...unless its about shooting a wad of cum into someone's mouth, or fucking some ones mother in the ass. Only someone who's fronting, and never been in a real fight gets wood when a flunkie like Hardy hangs his own neck out on a silver plate to a guy like Lytle.
.
So you know, these are the same who have never served their nation in uniform, but want to correct someone who has. I'll go on the record right now, if we ever cross paths and they talk their smack...I'll break their fucking jaw.
.
As you can see, that my take. No foul, no harm.
Morningwood- August 15, 2011 at 2:50 pm
Xeno,

I've been away for a bit. What did you do to warrant such hostilities?
Morningwood- August 15, 2011 at 2:46 pm
2DaDeath, I feel your advice is very sound and I will turn down any offer for a chickie run. To be safe can you explain to me what a "chickie run" is? thanks in advance.
NinjaVanish- August 15, 2011 at 2:07 pm
That fight would have ended quick if Hardy threw a damn knee lol. It's the only time I've ever seen the words "Knnnneeeee!" actually have meaning in the middle of a fight.
El Guapo- August 15, 2011 at 2:00 pm
If Xeno says he used to chill with Dana Fkn White and was in the special forces and the speedo wearing dude can sue the UFC and he beat up Maori warriors in New Zealand and hit a latina in a tree and threw a desk at a black chick and had Social Distortion play in his backyard and Kimbo's gonna take the boxing world by storm... Why wouldn't you believe him?
2DaDeath- August 15, 2011 at 1:07 pm
@xeno
I don't believe you when you say you had anything to do with anything. I'm pretty sure i'm not alone with that sentiment.

@morningwood
Didn't your dad ever teach you to not let your friends choose you? Whatever you do at this point, just don't agree to a chickie run. It'll only end up in tragedy.
