“the Predator” To Collide With “the Hammer”

From Dream Stage Entertainment USA:


LOS ANGELES, California -In what is shaping up to be one of the best fight cards of the year, Don "The Predator" Frye is now scheduled to fight Mark "The Hammer" Coleman on June 8, 2003 at PRIDE FC: BAD TO THE BONE (the event will premiere exclusively on Pay-Per-View on June 13th).

No strangers to each other, these legends of the sport have collided once before, back in 1996 at UFC 10. That night Coleman was victorious over Frye via TKO during an event in which both men fought two other competitors in the tournament before facing each other. Since then, each of their careers has shot up to astronomical levels: Coleman went on to win the prestigious title of PRIDE FC 2000 Grand Prix Champion and Frye became a superstar in PRIDE FC with incredible victories over the likes of Ken Shamrock and Gilbert Yvel.

Now these titans of the sport must meet once again! Coleman looks to prove once and for all that his previous victory over Frye was no fluke and that this match is nothing more than a stepping stone on his journey to reclaim his heavyweight championship. For Frye, it’s personal. Now a solid thirty pounds heavier than he was in his original fight with Coleman, "The Predator" is looking to avenge one of his only career defeats.

And this is just the beginning of an outstanding fight card! Also, scheduled: Newly crowned PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko will defend his title against the Japanese tank, Kazuyuki Fujita and fresh off of his upset of Kazushi Sakuraba, Antonio "Elvis" Schembri will do battle with Sakuraba’s teammate, wrestling star, Kazuhiro Hamanaka. More bouts will be scheduled soon! You don’t want to miss this card!
