PRIDE 2002 – Don Frye vs Yoshihiro Takayama

29th of June 2016

PRIDE Fighting Championships    The Freddie Mercury of MMA: Don Frye

Very impressive fight, even 14 years later. In PRIDE (And K-1) drug testing was practically absent. Many fighters were

caught for using steroids and such at other events that were tested. For example Sapp, Hari, Overeem, Randleman etc.

But still, legendary TKO win for Frye. If they would film a 2016 version of Deliverance, Don Frye would have to

get Burt Reynolds’ role 🙂

an English owner named Paul who previously had an 80m (262 ft) yacht. Because that large boat didn’t fit in most marinas

he switched to a much smaller one. Price / cost: 3 million Euros
