Don Frye wins at 'Shark Fight 4' in Texas

UFC old-schooler Don Frye submitted former national judo champ Rich Moss Saturday at "Shark Fight 4" in Lubbock, Texas.

Frye took Moss' back from avoiding a hip toss and finished with a rear naked choke at the official time of 2:12 of the opening round.

Frye, who in 1996 won UFC tournaments at UFC 8 and "Ultimate Ultimate 96," is back on the win column. The 43-year-old fought twice in 2008, knocking out Bryan Pardoe in January and then submitting to Ikuhisa Minowa in August.

Moss, a Judo black belt who fought primarily for the Rage in the Cage promotion in Arizona from 2002-2004, was making his return after almost five years away from MMA competition.
