View Full Version : Do you think Frye vs Yoshida was a work?

Answer the question. I think it is fishy. Frye used to be the best but used to be are the key words. No doubt that Yoshida is a great Judo man but he is a rookie. Of course that doesn't mean he can't win. Sperry beat Igor before anyone had really heard of the Zen Machine. People thought that was a work. But the fact that Frye's arm was popped out may be an attempt to make the fight look real and after the Royce fight....I don't know, my gut says work but I am open to persuasion.

i don't think so

I did think it was a work when I was doing the play by play, but I dont think Frye would risk an arm injury just so people will think Yoshida is the real deal.....

No way, not a chance.

Yoshida got the best of Frye in the first 30 secs with that big take down, Frye never seemed to get the advantage after that. Yoshida caught Frye and almost broke him arm.....kaps is right, why would Frye let it go so far if it was a work.

there was on time when frye was tripoding on yosh, he ****ed his arm back and there was a clear path to yoshida's face, he didn't punch after that. I am not sure, but i think Frye definetly wasn't his usual self that night
