Frye: I can't afford to watch MMA

April 1, 2012

Frye on whether he watches MMA: “I can’t afford to [laughs]. If it’s on free TV, I can watch it. They’re great athletes. It’s amazing how the sport has transformed. I’ve said a hundred times, it’s like NASCAR. I’m one of the old-time moonshiners and now you’ve got the 500-horsepower cars. These days they’re so technically fantastic. They’re great athletes. I get a kick out of watching them fight.

On putting on a show every time out: “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 whether there’s anything that could motivate him to fight again: “Yeah, it’s called an empty wallet.”
