MMA Legend Don "The Predator" Frye To Be "Unleashed"


August 27, 2011

Thunder Valley Casino Resort

Lincoln, California



The recently announced "Unleashed" Gladiator Challenge event, which

will take place August 27th at Thunder Valley Casino, will feature a very

special guest: MMA legend and pioneer Don "The Predator" Frye. The

winner of the tournament at UFC 8 in 1996, Frye has carved out his

place in the annals of the history of MMA.


An NCAA Division I wrestler in college, Frye was trained by fellow fight

legend Dan "The Beast" Severn (incidentally, Severn will be competing

for the GC Super Heavyweight Championship at "Unleashed"). En route

to winning UFC 8, Frye set the record (since broken) for fastest

knockout in UFC history at eight seconds. One of the first fighters to be

"cross-trained," in that he was proficient in more than one discipline,

"The Predator" holds a black belt in judo, and has pro boxing and

kickboxing experience. He holds a 20-8-1-1 record in MMA, and has faced notable fighters such as Gary

Goodridge, Mark Coleman, Tank Abbott, Gilbert Yvel, Ken Shamrock, Hidehiko Yoshida, Ruben Villareal,

and Dave Herman.


GC is proud to have its old friend appear at "Unleashed." Make sure you come out too Thunder Valley and

say hello to "The Predator!"
