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

The UFC May Have Finally Convinced Don Frye to Buy a Pay-Per-View

(No Don, there is not going to be free tequila at this film festival. And no, we are not shitting you about that.)

There are two types of old school MMA legends: the ones who will gladly tell you how much better the sport and its athletes are now than they were ten years ago, and the ones who will insist that the fighters of today are all a bunch of gutless pussies. Don Frye is in the latter camp. He frequently says that he doesn’t watch the UFC or even follow the sport in general with much interest, and yet he also seems certain that the kids these days are a bunch of punks who spend more time styling their hair than beating people up. It’s sort of like how your grandfather can manage to hate gays and people of other ethnicities despite not personally knowing anyone from either demographic. Some gifts just come with age.

But now the UFC may have finally put together a fight that interests Frye. Talking with The Rumble this week, “The Predator” admitted that even he can’t pass up the chance to see Mark Coleman and Randy Couture go at it in the main event of UFC 109:

"This might be the first UFC I buy and actually watch in about 10 years, you know?" Frye said. "These two guys, it’s going to be one hell of a barnburner. They’re going to show these new guys how to fight."

And for those of you who don’t think these new guys really need to be shown how to fight? Frye respectfully disagrees:

"You don’t come (to fighting) to quote movies or thank your sponsors," Frye said. "You don’t come to have your fingernails or your toenails painted. Goddamn, you come to fight, not to be a fairy. Fight, that’s what these two old boys are going to do."

Indeed they are. If you need Don between now and UFC 109, he’ll be down at the mall yelling at the kids inside Hot Topic. Someone has to, and if their dads are anything like today’s professional fighters they probably don’t have the stomach for it.

In related news, J.J. Abrams decided to try and top the batshit lunacy of time travel in his "Star Trek" special effects orgy by having a wormhole open up in the early 21st century to finally give Capt. Kirk a worthy opponent.

All silliness aside, Frye was one of the first in the UFC to bring a real mixed threat with boxing and wrestling. Granted he was out of his prime midway through Pride, but at the time of his debut he was one of the more well rounded fighters the UFC had. His old school tough guy persona has endeared him to many when compared to the tattooed create-a-fighter clones out there today.

Mayhem, King Mo, and others have their own shtick, but kinda like Nick Diaz and Diego, Don Frye's routine is the real thing (at least it appears that way in my opinion). Like it or not, it is who he is. Nostalgia and unique personality keep the Predator popular with many, and the fact that he nuts up and continues to fight is pretty cool as well.

If one more person shoe horns Don Frye into a Chuck Norris joke, I'm going to bite their fucking nose bridge.

Don Frye's moustache is not pleased by these last few comments. He demands a sacrifice.

Dont care for Don Frye myself.

He was kind of a petty asshole on the mmanews forum.
Da Spied Her- December 23, 2009 at 9:35 am
So Couture pressing a gassed Coleman against the cage for three rounds is going to be a "fight"? Go ahead Mr. Frye, waste your money on the PPV and let the mustache go without wax for a month.
fACE7biter- December 23, 2009 at 8:14 am
Holy shit, get off this guys dick. He's an old, bitter, irrelevant old man. The whiny bitch is condemning the whole sport because it's different than when he competed, and you're all acting like he's some brilliant pundit. Dude is corny, grow the fuck up.

Frye vs. Norris.
- The fight we all want to see..

PurplePickle- December 22, 2009 at 10:24 pm
Normally I would threaten to kill anyone who doubted The Predator's badassery, but then Mr Frye would probably consider that to be too gay to kill in defense of another man's honor so I will stand down. You lucky cocksuckers.

FYI, if you order a t-shirt from Don Frye's website, he will send you a free autographed photo. Mr Frye looks down from my DVD rack as I write this. UFC 8, motherfuckers. Watch it.
Sunburned- December 22, 2009 at 10:11 pm

I wonder how Frye got along every day when he was in Japan..
BobLoblaw- December 22, 2009 at 9:46 pm
blah - hahahahaha!! Robocop and Seoul Brother, those were some awesome slams. Well played Sirs. You guys better call Magnum P.I. and tell him that Frye is coming to take his mustache back.
Cock Chestner- December 22, 2009 at 9:03 pm
the predator is so awesome he can say shit that isn't even true and i believe it!

the only thing coleman is gonna do is show the youngins how to get real tired real fast...but if don says otherwise then by golly i believe it.

I just watched a movie today with Don Frye, Randy Couture, Bob Sapp and Rob Schneider in it called Big Stan. Frye played a pansy ass skinhead in prison who gets his ass kicked by Rob Schneider, obviously thats one of the better things Frye does besides watching the UFC. Sapp played a rapist who turns out to be a sissy and Randy is the only 1 to have a decent role. Might explain why Frye wants to watch the Couture/Coleman fight.

Chuck Norris wears Don Frye Pj's
Seoul Brother- December 22, 2009 at 6:11 pm

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - Chuck Norris is a beta release of Don Frye.
ghostboner- December 22, 2009 at 6:04 pm
@ robocop ha ha ha ha amen! Don Frye is the only man who Chuck Norris will allow to make eye contact and speak to him directly.
Robocop Didnt Tap- December 22, 2009 at 5:37 pm
@ Seoul Brother

In the name of the Don, the Frye and holy moustache, Amen.

Don is like the American version of Bas Rutten. I bet he's got some stories to tell...
Seoul Brother- December 22, 2009 at 5:29 pm
@BobLoblaw, Don Frye has chunks of guys like Matt Hughes in his stool.
Seoul Brother- December 22, 2009 at 5:28 pm
"And yea, for blaspheming the name of Don Frye, the heathen will be smote down like the IFL. Heed my words, for I am the Holy Mustache."
The Gospels According to Don.
Robocop Didnt Tap- December 22, 2009 at 5:27 pm

How dare you insult the man attached to Don Frye's moustache. Don Frye could tear Matt Hughes' head off AND fuck his mother at the same time.
BobLoblaw- December 22, 2009 at 5:12 pm
what weight class is this guy in, anyway? if hw, i'd love to see a carwin or a mir rearrange his anatomy for a while. or, if he's a 205-er, then i want to be a fly in his dressing room after A. Silva jumps a weight class in order to do an exhibition fight and a knocks the first eleven years of his memory out his ass.
look closely, potato nation; this is what matt hughes is morphing into, and it's gonna take less than 5 years for him to be the next don frye, commentary wise.
