“I’m pretty much quitting MMA. I’ve had enough of the (expletive). I’m done with it,” announced Frye. “The competitive urges still flow through me, but I’m tired of the (expletive) of the promoters.
“I’m tired of the (expletive) treatment, being lied to and tired of getting bounced checks from people. They can go pound sand as far as I’m concerned.”
With his announcement, Frye joins Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as fighters who’ve decided to make acting their main occupation. And Frye is working hard to become better at it.
“I’m taking acting lessons up in Scottsdale from Peter Stelzer and his wife, Marla Finn. They’re putting up with me enough to take my money and correct my stupidity,” chuckled Frye.
“It’s hard work. It’s not like you just stand there in front of the camera, make faces and read lines – you’ve got to put effort into it.”
As Frye puts it, acting is a respectful profession, unlike what he feels MMA has become.
“The fight game isn’t a respectful profession any more,” he stated. “They’ve made a mockery out of it by letting Jose Canseco fight, and now Hershel Walker, and all these other jackasses in their 40’s who have never fought.
“They’re getting paid more than the guys who have been putting years into it. It’s an embarrassment and a shame.”
