Chris Lytle at UFC 116

Chris Lytle at UFC 116

UFC veteran Chris “Lights Out” Lytle has had his sights set on entering the political arena for several few months.  The firefighter has had a long illustrious career in MMA, and currently holds the record of 10 post-fight bonuses, but he’s finally decided enough is enough, hanging up his gloves.

Outside of the cage, Lytle is known as a father, a husband, and is universally well liked.

The humble 38-year-old believes that not only would entering the political arena be beneficial to him, but also it would be beneficial to his family, as he could work in the daytime when his kids are at school.

“The thing is, I’ve studied a little bit of the political realm around here,” Lytle told MMAWeekly Radio.

“The good thing about that is the Indiana legislature meets around four months out of the year and it’s usually during the day.  I’ve already been looking into doing that and if I were able to do that, that would still give me a lot of time with the family and time to still do everything I want to do.  It shouldn’t interfere with that too much, so I would look into that and it would take a lot less family time from me.”

In the next week or so, Lytle will begin planning for his political future and, at this time, he believes he will make a run in 2012.  With Lytle trading his TapouT shorts for a suit and tie, the former mixed martial arts fighter is looking forward to shifting gears.

“I’m going to sit down with my political people in the next week and talk about formulating what I want to do and see what direction I’m going to go in.

“I don’t have that much of that kind of stuff.  Everybody, whoever sees me, knows that I don’t dress real fancy.  I don’t know, I guess maybe I got to buy a couple of suits. I got a little bit of money laying around now.”
