TBT: remember Don Frye vs. Gilbert Yvel in 2001, two weeks after 9/11

The date was September 24, 2001, less than two weeks after the attacks.

Don Frye was set to fight Gilbert Yvel in Japan, as part of Pride 16, but his heart was with the people of New York and all the other victms.

He entered the arena holding a masted American flag and a t-shirt that read Terrorists Sucks in the front and Air Force in the back.

There were no smiles and he went into the ring and did his job.
