Finisher Highlight Fight Night (UFC Fight Night 45 Review)

The UFC’s constant quest to get fighting legalized in every corner of the world to eliminate any limitations on where they can host an event one city remains the crown jewel. That city is New York as it has been the goal of Dana White for years. Imagine how big the UFC could do an event at Madison Square Garden and what type of money that would generate for them.

Plenty of Thrills in Milwaukee

The UFC went to Milwaukee for their 5th Live on Versus event and it turned out to be better than many of the Pay Per View events. With 7 total finishes in the card there was enough great action to keep you interested and that including the main event. Before the fight Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle were both essentially preparing to fight for their lives.

With Hardy losing his last three fights and not looking great in all three he was on the brink of never fighting in the UFC again. As his last chance he was given a shot against UFC veteran Chris Lytle in order to get back into the conversation in the welterweight. Meanwhile Chris Lytle seemed to be looking to get to the top of the welterweight division after a long career that has had its ups and downs. This was not the case however as just before the weigh-ins Lytle announced that he would be leaving the UFC after this fight to focus on his family life
