I really shouldn’t be making fun of Frank Trigg for his inability to defend a choke. I’m built like a fucking giraffe and couldn’t stop my 3 year old from taking me out, let alone some of the best MMA fighters in the world. But I’m just some douche writing for a blog and he’s a pro MMA fighter. Not being able to defend a choke in his situation would be like me trying to run this site with no damned fingers. And trust me people, it’s hard enough missing one thumb. Don’t ask.
Anyways, it looks like Frank Trigg might be returning to the Zuffa fold. At the moment talks are underway which may see Trigg returning to fight Paulo Filho in December, possibly replacing Jason Miller who seems to be cheating on Zuffa with ProElite every chance he gets. This behavior apparently trumps Trigg’s bad behavior which involved shilling for PRIDE and badmouthing the UFC for the past few years.
My bet is this will be the beginning of many new signings by the UFC going on over the next few weeks to prevent all this new competition from scooping up a lot of talent. And it’s about fucking time too. If the UFC wants to pretend it’s the only major league in town, they really need to step it up and only ditch name fighters like Trigg when they’re worthless husks who can’t even put over a TUF fighter anymore.
