  1. I get the impression that the majority of people on this subreddit have just seen post-Connor MMA and have no idea who pioneers like Frye and Takayama are.

  2. It’s a shame to see such a tough mf’ing legend crippled! For years, whenever I decided to introduce someone new to MMA, I would show them this fight, and they would always respond the same way.

  3. Now I despise seeing images of Takayama. Even if you surround him with flowers, happy faces, and inspirational quotes, he will remain paralyzed for the rest of his life. I’m hoping that in the near future, there will be an experimental treatment or something that will enable him to live a decent life again.

  4. Minoru Suzuki founded the “Takayamania” charity to assist with medical expenses. To help collect money, there was also DLC for Fire Pro.

  5. Don Frye once told a story about meeting Wandy and expecting to be offered shit, but instead being offered gum. It’s a classic.

  6. Don Frye is a poor man. Listen to this interview if you want your heart to break. For his own good, man is just too tough.

  7. Whatever you think of him, Don is an important part of the sport’s history, serving as a missing link between the early days of UFC specialists and the advent of full warriors. He’s also the quintessential American fighter, having been the first to incorporate semi-legitimate boxing techniques into a full-fledged wrestling match. Definitely one of the sport’s founding fathers.

  8. At the Poirier vs. Gaethje battle, I got a picture with Frye. My friends and I had floor seats, which are reasonably priced at Phoenix events, and he stuck around to take pictures with the audience. I didn’t expect him to be a jerk, but he turned out to be a lot nicer than I had expected.

  9. I just finished reading this post. If anyone is interested, here it is. There are a few more images and a link to another post on Takayama inside the article.

  10. It’s 56 seconds into the video. incredible two formidable fighters who are equally matched.

    Don used to write a love advice column for Pride FC. I think it’s hilarious.

    He’s a classy, witty man.

  11. Oh, how I wish he could make a cameo or reprise his role as Gordon in some capacity for the Monsterverse or some new Godzilla film.
