UFC Classics: Ultimate Fighting Championship: Vol. 9

Don Frye, a professional wrestler, has decided to retire this year. The prime reason of his retirement is his children. They need him now, so he wants to be there for them while they grow up. Done Frye is also an actor and a martial arts fighter.

Don Frye started his career in 1984 and got his training under UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). He won two Olympic events in the initial period of his career. Afterwards, Don Frye helped his friend Dan Severn to become a wrestling professional. In 1995-96, Dan Severn was Frye’s manager for the 8th championship of the UFC. In this event, Frye made a record by defeating his opponent in just three minutes. He also has made a record of the quickest knockout, in 8 seconds.

With his achievements in wrestling, Don Frye was selected for the K-1 competition of Japan. This was a mixed martial arts platform. There he earned fame and became a professional wrestler. Don Frye has a Black Belt in Judo and has also done boxing.

In February 2010, when he was asked about his retirement, he said, “Yeah, yeah… I'm done with it. I just lost my desire. A lot of it were the promoters, and the time commitment. You know, to be a top athlete, it's a pretty selfish endeavor.”

He has appeared in many movies as well. In 2004, he was in Godzilla (Final Wars). In 2005, he acted in Just Another Romantic Wrestling, No Rules and Nagurimono. In 2006, he starred in Miami Vice.
