Trigg Reportedly Signs with WEC
According to George Garcia, also known as Gorgeous George of the TAGG Radio program, his radio partner Frank Trigg, a former UFC welterweight contender and ICON middleweight champ, has been talking about returning to the middleweight ranks, this time under the Zuffa-owned WEC banner.
Garcia said on the MMAWeekly forum that Trigg has signed with the WEC and is scheduled to face Paulo Filho, the WEC's newly-crowned WEC middleweight champion, in a December title match.
I'm never crazy about the idea of signing a guy and having his first fight be for the title, especially when fans haven't really had an opportunity to get to know and rally behind the current champ. Come to think of it, these exact sentiments were expressed by Trigg himself on TAGG RAdio a few weeks back amidst talk of the WEC signing Chris Lytle to face welterweight champ Carlos Condit. Oh well....
