As The Fight Nerd reminds us, this weekend marks one year since the MMAbortion known as YAMMA Pit Fighting was forced upon the world. In honor of this YAMMAversary, our nerdy friend has dug up some promo material that never saw the light of day. Remember when Don Frye was originally scheduled to take on Oleg Taktarov in the "Master’s Division" (read: old guys), and then had to pull out with an injury? It proved to be Frye’s smartest career move, but fortunately for us he had time to film some promos for YAMMA first.
Say what you will about "The Predator," but he is the master of totally sweet burns that sound like something you’d hear down at the hardware store. Plus, his delivery is second to none. Today’s fighters just don’t compare their opponents’ heads to a "five-gallon bucket full of buttholes" quite the way Don used to.
After the jump, relive the awful shitshow that was YAMMA, and then be glad that it went away forever.
(I’m not sure if "highlight" is the right term for this.)
(Do yourself a favor and skip to the 0:23 mark. Then become depressed.)
