(Jason Miller, not a fan of looking conventionally tough.)

Oh, it is on. HDNet Fights’s second MMA event (“Reckless Abandon” [!!!]) goes down tomorrow night in Dallas. As mentioned earlier, Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg (15-6-0) and Jason “Mayhem” Miller (19-5-0) share top billing in separate fights, and if both fighters win we could be looking at a rematch of their 2006 Icon Sport fight that saw Trigg drop Mr. Mayhem in round 2.
But first they have to get through tomorrow. Frank Trigg is going up against Edwin Dewees (34-10-0, best known for bleeding all over Gideon Ray in TUF 4) and is heavily favored to kick ass. While “Babyface” Dewees isn’t a push-over, many of his wins have come against suspect fighters. He’s coming off two losses in a row, and he hasn’t fought since the Ultimate Fighter 4 finale in November ’06. Look for Trigg to win, and win early.
Meanwhile, the night’s other headliner will be going toe-to-toe with Tim Kennedy (8-1-0). You may be aware that Kennedy won a 2003 Extreme Challenge bout against Jason Miller, and he’s been undefeated since. Kennedy is a replacement for the medically suspended Sean Salmon, and the move gives Miller a chance to avenge his loss. This one is almost a toss-up, but something tells me Tim Kennedy might crawl out of the fight less battered than Jason Miller; we’ll give it to Kennedy by decision.
The rest of the card looks like this:
