Don Frye's 2, 3, 4 vertabre of his neck are collapsing and he's gonna need surgery. His fight with Coleman was probably his last. he re-injured it training for the Shamrock fight last year. Frye's doing a pro-wrestling match with Vader in a couple weeks, so that could be his last match all together. He 5, 6, 7 vertabre's are already fused and has a plate in it. He has one fight left on his PRIDE contract, and he said if they really needed him to fight, he would.

He called into WOL just now and he told Dave Meltzer that.

That sucks. Hope it doesn't turn into anything too detrimental to his long term health.

Something tells me that won't be the last we hear of Don Frye, he'll train some bad ass fighter that will dominate everybody.

That sucks. I hope he heals well.

I think its time for him to hang it up, he hasn't fared well as of late and I hate to see him fighting now that he is past his prime. IMO he should of stayed retired after the Takayama fight.
