While the executives of M-1 Global are no strangers to controversy and criticism, the organization's upcoming "M-1 Global presents Breakthrough" took a hit when original headliner Don Frye backed out of his fight with Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.
While M-1 Global CEO Joost Raimond immediately went on the offensive, issuing a press release that questioned Frye's motives for backing out, "The Predator" remained relatively silent on the subject.
That is, until now.

The 'stache is where it's at. Frye is the man.

"The position of douchebag fight promoter, who thinks he's tough because he hangs out with fighters and insults fighters – that position's already taken. We don't need that, OK?"



You gotta love Don Frye, man. This dude is hilarious!!!

I dont believe Don Frye would back down from any fight.

"I may have to reach up and punch him in the kneecap."
lol
Don Frye should have a 15ft solid gold statue made in his image.

I love Don Frye. Has anybody ever seen the promos he did for YAMMA where he was going to fight Oleg Taktarov? They're priceless. Quality comedy.
