Default YAMMA Pit Fighting Debuts April 11 with Frye vs. Taktarov, Eight-Man Heavyweight Tourney

YAMMA Pit Fighting Debuts April 11 with Frye vs. Taktarov, Eight-Man Heavyweight Tourney -- MMAjunkie.com
Posted by MMA Junkie on February 26, 2008 at 2:02 pm ET

YAMMA Pit FightingYAMMA Pit Fighting, an upstart MMA promotion founded by UFC creator Bob Meyrowitz, has unveiled part of its debut fight card, which features a main event between Don Frye (19-6-1) and Oleg Taktarov (15-5-2), as well as an eight-man heavyweight tournament.

The event takes place April 11 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J. The event airs on pay-per-view.

Frye and Taktarov will fight meet in what YAMMA executives call a “Masters Superfight.” The organization plans to feature “MMA’s most illustrious and legendary fighters” in these types of fights.

In addition to that one-on-one bout, YAMMA will host a heavyweight tournament that will include one-time UFC fighter Sherman Pendergarst (10-8), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and world champion grappler Marcelo Pereira (5-0), Strikeforce veteran and former Indianapolis Colts lineman Rex Richards (4-1), FightFest up-and-comer Tony Sylvester (10-1), and UFC/PRIDE/IFL veteran Travis Wiuff (47-11).

The organization today stated that three additional tournament fighters will be announced in the next few weeks. However, the organization’s website lists undefeated Ohio prospect George Bush (5-0), undefeated Dakota Fighting Championships champ Chris Tuchscherer (10-0), and former BodogFIGHT competitor Alexey Oleynik (6-3).

A fight between super heavyweights Gary Goodridge (23-15-1) and Eric “Butterbean” Esch (10-5-1) is also listed on the site but was not announced in today’s release.

The tournament will require fighters to compete in up to three bouts in one night. However, the fights will use modified rules. Preliminary and semifinal fights last just one round of five minutes, and the tournament finale lasts three rounds of three minutes each. Advancing fighters must pass physical exams between each round of the tournament.

Frye competed in some of the earliest UFC events. He was the tournament winner at UFC 8 and at an Ultimate Ultimate 96 (“UFC 11.5”) event that took place in 1996. The former Arizona State University wrestler has competed in the UFC, PRIDE, K-1, King of the Cage and other top organizations. The 42-year-old last defeated Bryan Pardoe at a No Limit Fighting event in Dallas.

Taktarov made his MMA debut at UFC 5 and won the UFC 6 tournament, thanks to his background in Sambo and Judo. The 40-year-old Russian quit competing in 1998 for 10 years before returning this past November for a BodogFIGHT victory over John Marsh.

“Don Frye needs to do only two things: fly to Russia and stay there for 10 years to study Sambo,” Taktarov stated in today’s release. “Then, maybe he’ll be ready.“

Tickets for the show go on sale March 8 at all Ticketmaster locations.

interesting that he sells off the ufc but then shortly after the sport becomes profitable again he jumps back in. i doubt it will last long though. organizations can only sell so many tickets with guys who are names out of their primes.
