Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The Don Frye YAMMA Promos You Never Saw

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.)

Don Frye is Haggar- April 12, 2009 at 2:26 pm
Bahaha I'm glad someone else found the resemblance as uncanny as I did.

If they can pump out a shit fest Dragonball movie then I think the fans deserve Don Frye as Mike Haggar. Spinning piledriver anyone?

If I watch anymore Yamma highlights Yamma throw up on myself.

What the fuck is a YAMMA?

I want to have Don Frye's babies. That dude is all man. You can tell by the mustache and the fact that his voice sounds like my grandmas (who has smoked for the last 40 years-how is she still alive?).

Holy Shit! Don Frye has been punched in the head way too many times. He sounds just like that guy from the movie, "Sling Blade." Is this what is going to happen to all MMA fighters when they get old. Their brains will turn to mush, but hopefully they will still be doing awesome interviews like this.

RIP Don Frye's Brain

Dear god. Make it stop.

Oh. Nevermind. The viewing public already did by not paying to see this shite. At least they didn't include any of scott ferral's announcing.

Yamma Pit Fighting? More like Fatty Pit Fighting.

Butterbean trying to shrimp reminded me of Jabba-the-fucking-hutt for Christ's sake. Did anyone actually pay for a PVP of this shit?

That man is a genius. The UFC needs to get this guy in there as a guest announcer.

the most hilarious part about the bucket-butthole statement was his grimace after he said it as if he got a bad mental picture. I replayed it and seriously laughed out loud.

I didn't know Tom Selleck was in MMA.

I filmed those 2 dopes. It was the toughest 3 minutes of my life

After the fight, Butterbean was disappointed at the ineffectiveness of his "beached whale" guard technique.

Someone needs to get Don Frye to star in a Final Fight movie as Mayor Mike Haggar!

Dana White sucks!- April 9, 2009 at 4:21 pm
Five gallon bucket of shitty MMA more like it!

"...five gallon bucket of assholes."

not even a teleprompter could save these two gorgeous, inept women. for the love of god ladies, just smile...just smile at the camera and don't speak, not even a word...unless it's something dirty and indicates which case, let loose the stream of consciousness amongst other things...

Nope, the dramatic music doesn't make the Butterbean/Pat Smith "fight" less tragic.

Don Frye is great, but does he really need to bash Krispy Kreme doughnuts? They're delicious!
