Brawl For It All Cancelled, Street Fight Erupts

Saturdays, No Limits Fighting “Brawl For It All” was officially cancelled by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) because the ring was put together wrongly. Fans were greeted at the door with signs stating the show was cancelled and ticket refunds could be obtained from the point of sale.

Last week we reported that the CSAC had to release the official fight card, because the promotion was selling tickets and advertising big name fighters for the card, that were not fighting. According to Sherdog:

The MMA card at the Cow Palace was cancelled Saturday afternoon when California State Athletic Commission executive officer Armando Garcia said he notified arena officials that the event, which had garnered just 300 tickets sold, was off because the caged fighting enclosure was missing two support beams.

During a meeting to determine whether the fighters will be paid, Don Frye and “Sonny”, Leland Chapman’s bodyguard went outside and fought. Police were called, but the two managed to run into each other later in the parking lot and the fight continued.

The fight with Don Frye and “Sonny,” who was Leland Chapman’s bodyguard, started when promoter Chris Salsbury told Scott Steiner that MMA promoter Phil Flathres would be in charge of paying the wrestlers. The wrestlers came to Flathers for their money. Somehow the MMA people and wrestling people were played against each other and tension developed. “Sonny” started making remarks about pro wrestling, which saw an MMA fighter/pro wrestler, Frye, telling him to shut up. Frye had been drinking and was loaded. It wound up with them going outside.

“Sonny” allegedly sucker punched Frye, bloodying him up. Frye then allegedly single legged Sonny and was punching him hard from the mount when it was pulled apart. The second confrontation in the parking lot saw Sonny knock down Frye and Sonny and Leland Chapman ran off as Scott Norton came and Frye got up. It should be noted that we’ve gotten many different versions and all are slightly different but this seems to be the best detailed version.

    You're a idiot Ryan. Can you even READ?!!?!? Dog the bounty Hunters son MOUTHED OFF TO Don MOTHER F'N FRYE!!!! His Body guard Sunny SUCKER punched him in the back of the head. This took place between 2 MMA guys, one of which used his body guard to do the fighting for him. Before making stupid comments, perhaps you should try reading it a 2nd time. Let me say it again, you're F'N STUPID.

    I am an MMA master, and i am disgusted by what I have just read. Don Frye is a legend in mma, although many of you may not know it, he is one of most loyal, passionate, hard working and beloved fighters in all of pride. The man is a living legend and it disgusts me that Leland chapman, a poor fighter at best, has the audacity to talk badly to Don frye. Him and his body guard would have absolutly no chance in a fair 1-2 fight verson don, his face is made of the toughest leather to ever grace the actogon. Put leland in taht fight against Yoshiro Takayama (also a legend) and I can say with sincerity that leland chapman and sonny would both be burried under a heap of dirt. I love Dog Chapman, but even that dog would be scared to bite DON FRYE! May this be a lesson to all mma'rs, STAY AWAY FROM DON FRYE IF YOU WANT TO LIVE, THAT MAN IS PURE LEGEND!!!!!!!!

    Okay, correct me if I'm wrong but I DON'T see where Leland was smarting off to anyone. I'm fairly certain I can read and ummm didn't see that in there. Now as to what the hell Sonny was thinking, I have no idea. Come on guys get it together already.

    Angel: This is really old but, It's kind of a funny story. I'm not putting much stock into it. Rumors tend to get blown out of proportion. People tend to exaggerate or say things that are completely untrue. For example, the person who posted above you wrote, "I am an MMA master." I wouldn't put much stock in that either…lol :-/

    The most important part of that article was this :

    "It should be noted that we’ve gotten many different versions and all are slightly different……"

    I have seen the video. It happened in a lobby of some sort with frye knocking sonny down. after that sonny gets up and starts to kick frye's ass. as it was being broken up it looked like frye was attempting a leg takedown that didn't work because they were separated. my opinion is that sonny has no chance in the ring, but in the streets he kicked fry's ass
