James Thompson vs. Don Frye
Artist: PRIDE 34
Frye's comeback to the PRIDE fighting ring after a four-year hiatus wasn't exactly triumphant, but he did cement his rep as one of MMA's toughest S.O.B.s. Sure, he ate over a minute of brutal fists and knees (beginning at 5:29 of this clip) before the ref mercifully (and belatedly) stepped in. But through it all, Frye was like the chick you'd never wife: He.refused.to.go.down.
