Don Frye: “If Dana White Doesn’t Get His Way He Throws A Fit”

UFC legend Don Frye recently shared his thoughts on the ongoing drama surrounding Conor McGregor and the UFC.

During his appearance on “Submission Radio” this week, “The Predator” explained why McGregor is “spot on” in how he is handling the situation, while at the same time he predicts that UFC President Dana White is “throwing a fit.”

“I think he’s right. He’s spot on,” said Frye of how McGregor is handling himself. “I mean that takes so much goddamn time away from you. You’re hired to be a fighter not to be an interview, you know, or interviewee. You’ve got things to do. When you’re training for a fight it’s a 24/7 job, and if they got you doing more interviews and promoting than they do fighting, well then you’re not going to last long. You’re not going to have a long career.”

Frye continued, “How do I say this without being rude? I guess I can’t, so I’ll piss on it. You know, Dana likes everything his way and if he doesn’t get his way he throws a fit, and that’s what’s happening. You know, and Conor’s spot on, man. You can’t spend more time doing interviews than training.”

As Frye explains, while MMA has gone from a fight, to a sport, to a TV show, it’s still a dangerous competition, and one that should be taken seriously.

“This is a dangerous sport, okay? And the thing is, it went from a fight to a sport to a TV show. And it’s still a dangerous thing. And so you gotta prepare yourself for it, because shit, just training — if you’re in one of those fights and you’re not hurt, you don’t get hurt, it still takes two weeks to recover cause of all the hard training. But if you’re not training you’re going to get hurt.”
