VIDEO: Don Frye Returns, Gets Knocked Out Badly

Earlier this year, a 52-year-old Dan Severn was knocked out badly in an effort to earn his 100th victory. It was a sad scene that played out in front of a small audience. Fans in Lincoln, California, got their own "Severn moment" as 46-year-old Don Frye returned to action for the first time in over two years in a rematch against 41-year-old Ruben Villareal last Sunday.

The match was for the Gladiator Challenge promotion and their light heavyweight title. The two first fought to a draw for King Of The Cage back in 2006 and Villareal was an injury sub for the 5-6 Mike Gonzalez this time around. Villareal (19-23-3) has been a bit more active than Frye, fighting four times this year...except he lost all four and has dropped five of his last seven.

He did get back on the winning track in quick fashion last weekend though:

It was the first action for Frye (20-8-1-1) since he lost to Dave Herman in sixty seconds by first round KO.
