“The Predator”

Don Frye Hall of Fame

Inducted into HOF(Pioneer Wing): July 10,2016 

Don Frye is a former mixed martial artist and professional wrestler. In MMA,  he was one of the sport’s earliest well-rounded fighters and he had instant success, winning the UFC 8 and Ultimate Ultimate 96 tournaments and finishing as runner-up UFC 10 in his first year of competition. 

Despite his accomplishments, he retired from MMA in 1997 to pursue a career in professional wrestling. After spending four years as one of Japan’s top gaijin wrestlers, Frye returned to MMA with the Pride Fighting Championships in September 2001, much more muscle-bound and sporting an American patriot persona in response to the September 11 attacks.

 After developing a reputation for toughness and fighting spirit, mostly due to his legendary bouts with Ken Shamrock and Yoshihiro Takayama during his two-year stint in Pride, Frye departed the promotion to compete in K-1 and Hero’s in 2004 but returned for the final Pride event in 2007.
