At UFC 270, Don Frye shows that cage fighters aren’t the only ones willing to throw punches at someone. During a heated argument in the stands, Frye threw and punched an angry fan in the face.
The encounter was recorded on another fan’s cell phone as he watched the spat unfold. After the former UFC heavyweight hit the fans, many of the patrons around were shocked, while some cheered more enthusiastically.

It’s unclear what started the controversy between the UFC original and the die-hard fan. So far, there have been no reports of Frye being charged with a punch to the face.
‘The Predator’ fought in the early days of the UFC in 1996. He then continued his career in other organizations, such as Pride and K1, before retiring in 2011.

I feel like I’ve done something different. out, I did what I said I would… I’m going out there and I’ll fight him… I’ll confront him if he wants to fight and I will submit to him I will break his leg if I get his leg I’m not happy with that… I’ve lost a lot of punches that I shouldn’t have taken, but that’s because I haven’t fought in a while.”
