Not so horrible at all.

Only Hughes, Chuck, Handy, BJ and Tito have more.
Do you mean they have more bonuses, Adam? I was reading Chris' "wiki" page and it says he has the most in UFC history. Did they get it wrong?

Chris Scott Lytle (born August 18, 1974) is a retired American mixed martial artist, boxer and a veteran of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Lytle was prominently featured as a welterweight on The Ultimate Fighter 4: The Comeback. In Chris's MMA and boxing career, he was never knocked out or submitted, though he did lose in MMA competition by TKO by way of cut stoppage. Also notable is the fact that Lytle won ten UFC fight bonuses, the most in UFC history, including six Fight of the Night Honors, three Submission of the Night Honors, and one Knockout Of The Night Honors.

He was tough as nails, and most of his losses were close fights that he possibly would have won. Still, the records are the records. If we go too far down that road, we might as well say Chael Sonnen is the greatest middleweight of all time.

Lytle seemed to always just go balls out (in a good way, not in a Dennis Hallman way) and I think the fact that he has made as much money as he has in bonuses proves that alone.
yup .. many people think he won that fight with serra to earn the shot ... and look what serra did .. LOL .... so i am sure the fact that he was so close to a shot and a potential title that it bothers him ... well, it may not bother him, but i am sure he replays the what-ifs in his mind over and over ...

GSP has 2 of those 22 spots. Last night, Chris Lytle secured his 4th. For someone with no 5 round title fights to his credit to be able to rack up an unprecedented achievement like that is amazing & speaks to the historic wars that Chris was a part of.
I'm sorry but my first thought was: How do you land 100+ significant strikes and not knock a guy out?

Seems like maybe the guy that took those 100+ shots should be getting the achievement award.

LOL .. yeah, the UFC should go to Timex and get sponsorship for that award .. "Takes a licking and keeps on ticking" award (that was timex right?)

or maybe get sponsorship from Viagra ... the "Still standing after 3 rounds" award ...
