Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

And Now He’s Arrested: Frank Trigg in Custody on Battery Charges

Let me get this straight: You come to me empty-handed, and you want my help?

Earlier this year, we passed along a rather disturbing story regarding former UFC fighter and HDNet commentator, Frank Trigg. For those of you who don’t remember: In October 2011, Trigg allegedly choked his wife unconscious in front of their children. posted a graphic picture of his wife’s throat following the incident, and one affair with a twenty-three year old assistant producer later, Trigg was out of work with HDNet.

Today, is reporting that Trigg was arrested yesterday on charges of battery over the incident. He’s currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas on a $15,000 bond, and will be appearing in court tomorrow.

I’m not a lawyer, and I realize you’re innocent until proven guilty, but I’m not liking Trigg’s odds of (ahem) beating this case.

We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on this story as more information becomes available. As for now, send “Twinkle Toes” your regards in the comment section. And don’t hold back.

Battery charges? Like putting D-cells in a sweat sock?

The bitch shouldn't have tried to leave the house with her purse and her shoes when there's dishes to be done anyways.

It's called tough love, it's for her own good.

But wait, I thought tapping was for bitches?! I guess Mrs. Trigg does not agree.

She probably told him that compared to Matt Hughes he fights like Steve Urkel.

Crow42- actually, the reason they waited this long was because they were waiting to have an air tight case. 80% of domestic battery cases never make it to the D.A., but this one is one of the few that make it. His daughter testified to a judge that she saw him choke her step mother unconcious and that he called her a "cunt" while she was lying, passed out, on the floor. She recalled vivid details of the event to the judge. So as far as him beating this case, I would have to bet a big NO.

This is actually very sad news. I know he always mentions his daughters in post-fight interviews and stuff. I feel badly for his kids AND his wife (ex-wife). Im not a Trigg fan.....but I am even more of a fan of NO violence outside the cage. Its actually very disappointing.

Twinkle Toes is not a good name in prison. "Taking his back" takes on a whole new meaning.

That sucks! First fight he's won in years only to have the outcome likely decided by a judge. Judges are ruining this sport.

Hey Frank! You aren't a very good fighter! And you're bald!

(was that good?)

It's not his fault if she didn't tap.
Crow42- August 9, 2012 at 2:27 pm
Probably will beat the case , if they waited this long to charge him
