Yeah man totally.
I can't believe this is happening! Lashley seems like he might be milking the whole MMA thing in the same way he did with prowrestling. Don Frye is a great guy, (albeit a product of a weird environment)and I don't think this is safe at all. How is Lashley getting these openweight fights?!?! This isn't even fair. The guy has all the potential in the world, but he isn't living up to any hype whatsoever with any of these fights he's taking, and he seems to be making a joke of it. He needed to be on TUF bad in my opinion, and since he didn't, he is fighting as many non-submission guys as he can. I've gone from completely supporting him and wishing he would do well, to waiting for him to get subbed I wouldn't be surprized if he quit after his first loss.

These are all jerky comments, but come on, Don Frye?! Why not a guy like Dan Evenson or some gooper like that who has SOME name recognition if you are still afraid of sub guys.

I think he is just taking every fight he can get his hands on right now. Might as well be against a guy we have actually heard of. It is still only his fifth fight so we cant tear at him to much.

Its to bad Don Frye hasnt got it anymore, you know your career is done when you have a loss to James Thompson lol

Smart business decision and thats all these pro wrestlers really are, business man. He will just beat guys who are over the hill who used to be good back in the day.

I've never watched a full Don Frye fight (only been watching MMA since 2006) but I have seen clips of the guy and it sounds like he's still more of a challenge than Bob Sapp was so why flame Lashley now for picking a guy who can fight instead of a guy who can't take a punch?

Lashley wants to fight 2 more times this year I say why not?

Lashley will take him down and lay on him til it gets stopped. Frye is one of my favorite fighters but he is older now and isnt as fast with tackdown defense as he was. Pretty sure lashley will win but ill still root for my man Frye....guys a tough SOB and his fights are always exciting

I think Lashley is being very intelligent with the way he is picking his fights. He is fighting guys that are the same caliber of most other pros that are just starting out (albeit because they are old or freaks), except that these are guys with some kind of name recognition. For only having five fights Sapp, Frye, and Jason Guida hold some good name value as wins. I bet his next fight after Frye will be with Ken Shamrock.

I'd rather see Lashley somewhere on UFC preliminary bouts than his fight with Frye. Don is a legend of this sport, but he's no longer what he used to be. I can't see him winning this and Lashley obviously wants to decorate his MMA record by having Frye's name on it.

I don't like this at all. Frye's my boy but come on man. He better find a cure for his Shamrocolis. Frye's been an old man 5 years ago, and Lashly just lost my respect. At least Brock fought Mir as his second fight.
