Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Quote(s) of the Day: Don Frye Bashes Dana White, Brock Lesnar, and Himself

(Fact: Don Frye charged each of these women a ZJ for this photo.)

For all the “creative” insults and red-blooded rants Chael Sonnen is able to come up with out of the blue, he will never hold a candle to the crass, old timey anecdotes of Don Frye. The man has more bravado than a Sherman tank full of other Sherman tanks, more wisdom than a Tibetan monk achieving Buddhahood, and would fight his own mother in your basement for a shot of Jack Daniels if you asked him correctly. He makes the Brawny man look like a metrosexual, and orders grilled bison when your mother takes him to that hip new Vegan restaurant in town. Matter of fact, Frye’s masculinity has grown so powerful that it even manifested itself in the greatest television character of all time: Ron fucking Swanson.

So you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that, during a recent interview with Sherdog’s “Savage Dog Show,” Frye was unrelenting in his mockery of everyone from Dana White to Brock Lesnar, unleashing a hellstorm of one liners that will surely make you feel like less of a man for not even having the gonads to dream them up.

First, let’s start with Frye’s assessment of the current UFC fighter pay scale:

Oh my God, it’s a crime. It’s a crime. You see some of these guys only getting two or three or six thousand dollars and you’ve got Dana bragging about having 30 Ferraris. Come on. You have a sponsor and he charges a sponsor what, a hundred and fifty grand to have your stuff on the fighter? That’s money he’s stealing from the fighter. Then he goes and he pays them two or three thousand dollars. That’s crazy.

Now, we’re not going to say anything that a poorly executed ESPN segment hasn’t already attempted to say in regards to fighter pay. If fighters feel they are being mistreated, they have several options:

1. Form a union, which Dana White has long stated is “up to them,”
2. Goad Zuffa into firing them under the belief that other promotions will pay more ie. Rampage Jackson.
3. Use a combination of arrogance, pleading, and incomprehensibility to confuse the Zuffa brass into paying them millions ie. James Toney.

We would say that it is unfair for Frye to base the income of the President of the UFC against that of its lower-tier fighters, but honestly, we are too afraid of Frye to state it outwardly.

Anyway, Frye continued his verbal assault on The Baldfather throughout the interview, which can be heard in its entirety here. But nothing hit harder than Frye’s claim that White had “ruined the sport” he loved so dearly:

The fans are fantastic. Fantastic fans. But the thing is, Dana White’s just ruined the sport. I got to thinking about it today and you know, he ruined it for me. I thought, ‘Why am I letting that asshole dictate my life and take all of the fun out of it for me?’ I just ignore him and go on with my life.

We don’t care how thick skinned DW claims to be, that one must have hurt.

A few of our other favorite tidbits are as follows:

On whether or not he brings it every fight: “A couple of times I didn’t pull it off. I screwed up, but I’m not like Brock Lesnar where there’s a trail of piss from the locker room to the cage. I come to fight. I’m not walking in there looking for a soft spot to land.”

On motivation: “Yeah, it’s called an empty wallet.”

On his most recent KO loss to Ruben Villareal: “I didn’t train. I worked out, but I didn’t train. There’s quite a difference, quite a difference. We had the weigh-ins. Ruben took off his shirt and looked like Tarzan. I tell you what, if I had a car, I’d have jumped in it and left right then and there. I deserved it. Ruben Villareal, he stomped the s–t out of me and I deserved it because I thought I’d go in there just as Don Frye and my press clippings would impress him. Apparently he never learned to read on the reservation. He wasn’t impressed with my print.”

Just like those talks with your senile grandfather, it wouldn’t be a Don Frye moment if it didn’t contain just a tinge of racism, right?

Back in the 70s and 80s, Don Frye's moustache went 268-0 in full contact Kumite-style fights

What the fuck. I write a whole comment, then it tells me to log in and erases my comment.

Fuckit I'm not writing that again. I'm leaving for another 4 weeks and we'll see how much further this site sinks in that amount of time.

The key to not doing that again is just hit post a comment and leave it blank - it then has you sign in. So don't type shit until you have signed in otherwise you get nothing. I have done it before and it sucks ass.

Don Frye needs to write a book already. He'll probably make more than he did his entire fighting career.

Give Done Fry the people's championship Mustache Strap already. His lip fringe is a transcended homage to Magnum PI. It's peerless.

New proposed nicks:

Don "The Prejudice Pugilist" Frye
Don "Coochie Mane" Frye
Donaldinho "Predador Velho" Frye
Don "The Bumpkin Blastard" Frye

dana ruined it for me the day it went to fox. i cant speak for anyone else, but i cringe everytime i hear sunday night football music and have to sit through the c.g.i. dancing robot with shoulder pads station identification break. i feel out of place watching a sport that ive followed since dan severn and ken shamrocks interperative movment. i turned on the cain, santos fight and a little guy in black and white popped out of my t.v. and told me that in order for me to continue viewing i was required to adorn an "iceman" jersey and have a seven layer bean dip present in the room.

Ok, so this is your lame reason he ruined mma? Did you know that the UFC is all about the fighters and the fights that he puts on...and your complaining about this shit..get your head out of your ass If you watch mma for all the intros and whatever else your bitching about then you shouldn't be watching it anyway.
flampoo- April 2, 2012 at 10:30 am
You liked MMA before it was mainstre... er, network tv'd.
The12ozCurls- April 2, 2012 at 10:20 am
So, how was the dip? Sounds delicious.

Photo caption should have been:
Although that is all the physical contact Don Frye had with those women at Hooters, all 3 are now pregnant.
Kurgarra u Galatur- April 3, 2012 at 2:51 am
12oz wins the internet.
Fried Taco- April 2, 2012 at 9:59 am
Don Frye would have made Rashad sign that photo.
Kurgarra u Galatur- April 3, 2012 at 2:52 am
FT wins everything else.
The12ozCurls- April 2, 2012 at 10:18 am
Hell ya he would have.
He would have made Rashad sign the picture in Rashad's own blood. And he also would have made him sign it "Stanky-leg Evans"
