No one’s told Frank Trigg he’s fighting Paulo Filho

As time goes on and more people jump on the MMA news bandwagon, you better believe there’s gonna be more false and misleading information floating around. In this case, the false news was that Trigg/Filho was a done deal for December:

Despite a published report last week to the contrary, Frank Trigg (15-6) says he has not been offered a bout with World Extreme Cagefighting Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho (15-0) for its Dec. 12 event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The former UFC welterweight contender said he’d been told that the Brazilian Top Team member has been presented with a bout agreement bearing Trigg’s name, though he has not received the complimentary paperwork on his end. Trigg has not been contacted by WEC officials, but said he is open to the bout.

I was waiting for Frank to confirm this fight through his radio show, which I’ve upgraded from ‘frequently wrong’ to ‘reliable enough to trust on matters relating to Frank Trigg’. It is interesting to note that Trigg hasn’t been in touch with WEC people despite the fact that the WEC has already sent out paperwork with his name on it. One would hope the WEC would lock him into a contract before putting out bout agreements with his name on it … but hey, I’m not a superstar businessman so maybe that’s just not how real organizations roll.

    Zuffa has so much control over everyone that they don’t even bother to notify fighters of when they are fighting. Or you can just be put on the bench like Arvloski. Great business.

    Who the fuck cares? Does anyone seriously want to see someone perform another heimlich on Trigg. He actually wasn’t bad as a Pride color guy, but that is as far as it went. His days of fighting were over before he kicked Hughes in the nuts. Fuck, if you wanna blow somebody I could sure use one, quite huggin his nuts already. Payback comes tenfold so bring it.

    Think Cro Cop is gonna get benched too?

  • Ted Dibiase says:

    i dont know… i could watch trigg get heimlich’d again

    whats arlovski supposed to do for money since hes on the shelf? go on the jerry springer show? maybe if andre works hard enuff and sacrifices he could have his own show like steve.

    a football player dont sign contacts for play for 16 games. they sign for a time limit. per year. fuck dana white and his shady contracts.

  • rob daniel says:

    That’s part of his punishment for shit talking the UFC on his ‘lil Pride FSN show. Dana will drug Trigg and he will later wake up in the cage w/ Filho whereupon he will get KTFO. Payback’s a beach.

    I’m sure Arlovski is making huge bank off his lucrative Soyo endorsements. Nothing says BELARUSIAN HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHTER like your stylized face-logo on a tee-vee, y’know?
