Frank Trigg didn’t come back to the UFC for the hell of it. He’s back to make one last run at the title.
“Let’s be honest: This is a title run,” Trigg said following a vigorous workout Wednesday at Xtreme Couture. “I’ve kind of always been that way, where I’d rather run myself into a brick wall and fail at the attempt than keep running my mouth. Let’s face facts, guys: I’m a good mouth runner. I can talk about anything at any time I want. But the real guys will talk about it and then go out and do it.
“I don’t have much time left. I’m 37 years old and I’m only going to be around four, five more years. (The sport is) going to develop too much around me. No matter what I’m going to do, I’m not going to be able to develop. Age and wisdom can only take you so far before age catches up to you. I want to go up at least having made the attempt of being one of the best guys out there.”
I kinda doubt Frank Trigg is the guy to do it, but someone needs to step up in the welterweight division and emerge as a compelling challenger for George St. Pierre. We’ll find out next Saturday if Trigg could be the one.
