Anderson Silva will retire in 2009

by: Jack Bratcher

We’ve heard all the rumors and the so-called “mistranslations” but it doesn’t seem to get any more clear than this new interview with Anderson Silva where he says he will retire once his current contract with the UFC is up.  He has six fights on his contract until June of 2009.  Silva says, “everything has it’s time and I believe my time is already over.”

When asked if it had anything to do with the salary he makes from the UFC he assures us it has nothing to do with that and that he has never fought for the money.  The reporter tells Silva that he is sad to hear this and Silva tells him not to be sad because he will be sitting at the side of the Octagon with a fat belly eating popcorn cheering on the fighters.

Don Frye – An American Bad Ass

by: Cory Brady

Don “The Predator” Frye is among the last of a dying breed. A real all-American bad ass. Believe it or not, Don actually ended up fighting for nothing but the love of fighting in his first bout, when the fighters pay fell through at the last minute. Don could have just turned around and went back to where he had come from, but he stepped up to the plate and the rest is MMA history. Don has fought all over the world in every elite fighting organization including UFC, Pride FC, K-1, Deep, King of the Cage, and more.  The man is nothing short of a living legend in MMA.

As we began our conversation Don started talking about possible retirement and I wanted nothing more than to change the subject. After the countless MMA memories Don has provided for all of us, I could not fathom this man they call The Predator really stepping away for good. Don will be one of those guys that people will miss more when he’s gone, unfortunately. If Don does decide to hang up his 5 oz. MMA gloves for good, we at Pro MMA would like to thank him on behalf of countless fans for all of the timeless memories this extraordinary athlete has provided for us. Thank you Don.
