    can't imagine how you would confuse them, since they look nothing alike...

    hey, didn't one of them used to be the lead singer for queen?

    I have no idea what they look like and couldn't be bothered to google them.

    I just wanted to make a "he who shall not be named" reference.

    Tank Abbott used to mistake Dan Severn for Freddy Mercury.

    Actually, I think Don Frye is a very poor example.
    I personally think that Frye was the very first truly rounded fighter in the UFC. He could strike effectively, and Grapple like a champ.

    A much better example is Dan Severn, Ken Shamrock or Oleg Taktarov imo.
    Watch UFC 1-10 and you will see that pure grappling dominance was the rule, not the exception.

    I used to think Dan Severn was Haggard from Final Fight. Probably is.

    I did Judo with Oleg in New Orleans, at a seminar he and Gene Lebell put on. Oleg has very good Judo/Sambo to say the least, was funny, cool guy, and a good teacher. Everybody but me was there for the leg locks, though.

    And he does not look like Freddy Mercury, who lived and (and died) in New Orleans.

    Now,who in MMA looks like Trent Reznor?
