TYSON GRIFFIN ANNOUNCES WINNER OF IMPACT FIGHT CHARITY WITH A SURPRISE

Oct 26, 2011
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Featherweight standout, Tyson Griffin has selected a winner of his Impact Fight Charities/Boys Town of Nevada fundraiser: KENT FRYE of Bow, Washington.

Tyson Griffin has selected the 44-year old Frye randomly out of all the participants who donated to the fundraiser over the course of the campaign. All funds donated go to The Boys Town of Nevada, which Griffin wants to bring more awareness to. Kent Frye will receive two tickets to Griffin’s fight this Saturday, October 29th at UFC 137 against Bart Palasewzki at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I thought one of my buddies was playing a practical joke on me,” said Frye, “I still can't believe it. This is my sixth UFC live event this year so life is good! My friends call me the UFC super fan. I saw Tyson fight live at UFC 115 in Vancouver; action packed fight, this dude can brawl. I think of him as a bulldog, never a dull moment when he's fighting and I’m looking forward to watching him kick some butt! It's pretty neat he does this charity work for kids in Nevada, my wife and I are huge supporters of charity work for children.”

However, there is an added surprise for winner Kent Frye. Beyond The Cage (www.mma-beyondthecage.com), publishers of the only fine art line in MMA are giving Frye a one-of-a-kind high-end art piece from their extensive portfolio. The line features mixed martial arts giants like Randy “The Natural” Couture, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell and Anderson “The Spider” Silva among many others. According to spokesman Jerry G., once Beyond The Cage found out about Griffin’s charitable efforts they had to get involved.

“We at Beyond The Cage are privileged to be working with Tyson Griffin who is truly and inspiration to all,” says Jerry G., spokesman for Beyond The Cage. “We hope with our combined efforts we make it a little easier to help such a worthy cause and the people at Boys Town of Nevada.

Naturally, winner Kent Frye is more than elated about this surprise.

“What I like about Beyond the Cage is the originality of the artwork and the authentication makes for a good conversation piece in any home, especially the home of an MMA fan,” said Frye. “This one of a kind MMA artwork hanging on my wall is great. It's nice to add to my collection!”
