Following Frank Trigg’s first round TKO loss at the hands of Josh Koscheck at UFC 103, rumours stemming from www.mmajunkie.com, a source close to the fighter, suggested that the word inside the organisation was that they were set to drop the fighter. This came as somewhat of a surprise considering the fighter had only just been re-signed by the UFC after four years fighting in smaller promotions. For whatever reason it seems that this is now not the case with Trigg himself reporting to mmajunkie that “They said I’ll get one more shot, another fight, to prove I belong here.”
This seems like a sensible decision, though Trigg may not a title contender at this stage a loss against Josh Koscheck is certainly no disgrace and there are still interesting fights that can be made with the 37 year old in the welterweight division. Another loss would however likely see not just the end of the fighters run in the UFC, but also his professional career as he confesses that they thought of fighting in the smaller shows again no longer and option he would care to pursue.
