Don Frye may watch first UFC in a decade

by Chad Dunda | source:

The former UFC tournament champion and veteran MMA fighter told The Rumble last week that he can't wait for legends Mark Coleman and Randy Couture to get their scrap on at UFC 109, and didn't mince words when it came to voicing his opinion about the current state of the sport.

"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."

Frye said he would definitely be watching when Coleman and Couture step into the Octagon in Las Vegas come February, hoping for a real, old school brawl.

"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."

Frye fought Coleman twice during a professional career that has thus far spanned 13 years. The pair first met at UFC X in July of 1997, in what was Coleman's first MMA event. They fought again at Pride 26 in 2003. Coleman won both battles.

I agree with Don. This is a fight I've been wanting to see for a long time.

I think Coleman will have his moments early, but his notoriously shallow gas tank will be his undoing.  Couture will have his way with the Hammer in the second and third rounds.

As a huge fan of Coleman, I'm really excited to see this fight. I strongly believe that Coleman will win this fight.

I'm mildly interested in the Koscheck/Thiago fight and Coleman/Couture is interesting as an oddity, but the card as a whole feels like something that should be a ppv in Europe and free in the states. No disrespect to Frye, but this card is weak sauce. If Randy is ever going to score a standing KO, this is his best opportunity. Coleman is about as limited a striker as you'll find at LHW. He has a solid chin though, so I'm not expecting it.

Oh my does Don know what year it is?And people are killing 108 but to me from undercard up 108 has much more interesting fights than this 109.I order every PPV in HD (55.00 on FIOS) and i'll probably get it but this is the least exciting card I can remember IMO of course.
