Don Frye vs Yoshihiro Takayama Pride FC 21 Fight Video slug fest. This week marks the 13 year anniversary since the final PRIDE Fighting Championship event. Take a look back at one of the most memorable fights in the promotion’s history between Don Frye and Yoshihiro Takayama in 2002.
This fight at Pride 21 (on June 23, 2002) that became Frye vs. Takayama was not originally scheduled to be MMA fighter vs. wrestler, but instead a battle of two former UFC veterans, Frye vs. Mark Coleman. But, after Coleman backed out due to injury, Takayama took his place only two weeks before the bout.
