Frank Trigg Signs Multi-Fight Deal With The UFC



Welterweight veteran Frank Trigg announced on the MMAJunkie radio show that he has signed a multi-fight deal to return to the UFC. Trigg didn’t have much details about the contract, except that it took nine months to complete.

“We tried real hard to make a deal for the WEC, back when they still had a welterweight division, and we just couldn’t come together … I talked to them again, and (WEC matchmaker) Sean Shelby and (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva and I got together and worked it all out.”

Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg, 37, hasn’t competed in the UFC since 2005. Trigg went 2-3 in the UFC, two of those losses were to then UFC welterweight champ Matt Hughes (UFC 45 and UFC 52).

Trigg has gone 4-0 as of late, racking up wins over Edwin Dewees, Makoto Takimoto, Falaniko Vitale and Danny Babcock.

    I hope money is motivating him to do this cuz I doubt dude will go anywhere in this WW division. If he looks to capture the belt then dude might as well not even fight in the UFC

    I would like to see Trigg fight Matt Serra. A fight with Koscheck would be good to.

    triggs a good fighter he will never beat GSP but he is still a force to wreckin with if it wasnt for hughes an GSP he woulda been champion. Good addition to an all ready stacked welter weight division. Makes more matchups since Swick wont figh Fitch or Kos. I too would like to see him fight Serra.
