Don Frye Vs Oleg Taktarov for April 11th!!

Quote:
The upstart YAMMA Pit Fighting organization, which was recently founded by UFC creator Bob Meyrowitz, has booked a fight between UFC pioneers Don Frye (18-6-1) and Oleg “The Russian Bear” Taktarov (15-5-2).

According to Frye, the fight will take place at the organization’s inaguaral show, which is set for April 11 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J.

Frye broke the news on TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), a content partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

“I hope (YAMMA) made the announcement because I just signed to fight Oleg Taktarov,” Frye said.

The Frye vs. Taktarov bout will be a “Master’s Fight” that will supplement an eight-man heavyweight tournament also planned for the event. The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board has tentatively approved the tournament using a modified system of rules that call for shorter rounds and between-fight medical examinations.

Details of the upstart YPF organization first surfaced early last week, though there were few to speak of. Other than promising a “revolutionary” fighting surface that will alter the way fighters compete in MMA, as well as confirming that the organization will bring back tournament-style events that were popular in MMA’s early days, YAMMA executives released few details.

Frye competed in some of the earliest UFC events, where tournament formats required winning fighters to compete more than once per night. He was the tournament winner of UFC 8, as well as the Ultimate Ultimate 96 (“UFC 11.5”) event that took place in 1996. The former Arizona State University wrestler has competed in the UFC, PRIDE, K-1, King of the Cage and other top organizations. The 42-year-old fighter last fought at PRIDE 34 and suffered a first-round TKO to James Thompson.

Taktarov made his MMA debut at UFC 5 and won the UFC 6 tournament, thanks to his background in Sambo and Judo. The 40-year-old Russian quit competing in 1998 for 10 years before returning this past November for a BodogFIGHT victory over John Marsh.

So who takes it? Taktarov or Frye??!

Jeebus effin christ. This is about old skool as you can get. It could ony get more old skool if they had Severn reffing and Ken doing the commentary with. . . Blatnick! I hope this goes through, because it could be an epic war.

Holy crap, I actually want to see this fight. Oleg still rules, and Frye probably won't die here, so that rules. Oleg Taktarov should sub Don, though. Well, he'll probably break a limb, since Frye doesn't tap. It's the badassery in his system.

Yep, I moved it.

It's, like, my dreams are coming true, e-thug. Hell, maybe Bas Rutten vs Frank Shamrock 4 can happen in the near future? That would rule.

This is indeed old school. Frye is such a badass, and Oleg is such a bear. I can't wait!
