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

Frank Trigg? Yeah, He Got Fired Too

(Frank’s the guy in the background who is being assured by Josh Rosenthal that everything is going to be all right.  Well, not everything, but you get the point. Photo courtesy of Fight Magazine.)

We left one name out of yesterday’s recap of the post-UFC 109 contract-cutting bloodbath, and it is perhaps the least surprising one of all.  Frank Trigg, who suffered his second KO loss in as many fights after being brought back to the UFC in 2009, was also invited to seek other opportunities/paychecks this week.  One has to think that Trigg saw the firing coming after his poor showing against Matt Serra last Saturday.  Not only did he get knocked out, but this fight had loser-leaves-town written all over it from the start.  Why Trigg would dare show up for a fight of that importance with hair is beyond us.

Unlike Mark Coleman, Trigg says he’s not sure yet whether he’ll try to land a gig fighting outside the UFC.  He has some on-camera experience and can probably land a job of some sort in broadcasting, or maybe he’s had enough of working for other people and will resurrect the Triggonomics brand as MMA’s next clothing giant.  Changing the name so it no longer "sounds like a lemonade stand" might be a good first step.

Serra is the real deal, a true athlete, he deserved this win.
If you desire to debate this, just look at the picture above.

Let me know when you can duplicate it. (I know i could not). He defeated GSP in honest fashion, and his loss to Hughes was more of a popularity contest (imo).

He [Serra] is short, does that matter? He'd kick my ass because he is a professional. Trigg can broadcast though, he isn't actually that bad at it (imo).

Strikeforce should replace Frank Shamrock with Frank Trigg. He was a pretty good commentator, i think. Then get rid of the other losers and add Bas. That actually might be too awesome for strikeforce, though...

If I wanted a t-shirt that shows my support for someone who was never really all that good to begin with, I'd pick up a Nomar Garciaparra jersey from the Salvation Army.

When he was firing Trigg, I bet Joe Silva gave him a nice little heartfelt speech.

"Frank anyone who built an empire or changed the world sat where you sit right now and it's because they sat there that they were able to do it."

Matt Serra is the Homie, but watches way to much Cirque IMO.

The best nickname in the history of MMA, was also cut.

Soon as I saw that he'd grown his hair out, I knew he was going to lose.

Here's hoping Chuck re-shaves the sides off his mohawk in time for his fight.
