The UFC Releases Frank Trigg

You can add Frank Trigg to the list of names that were released from the UFC following UFC 109. Trigg confirmed the news with MMA Junkie earlier this evening.

After posting a 6-1 record to earn his way back into the organization and signing a new deal with the UFC in 2009, Trigg was notified on Monday that he had been dropped from the UFC after a knockout loss to Matt Serra at this past weekend’s UFC 109 event.

Trigg confirmed the news with ( on Wednesday.

Trigg said he held off on sharing the news until he could notify family members. He said he’s undecided if he’ll pursue opportunities outside the organization.

Bummer for Trigg. He repeatedly stated in interviews leading up to UFC 109 that he didn’t have anything to fall back on if he got cut, but hopefully he keeps his chin up and lands on his feet somewhere. I’m sure there’s plenty of places in this industry that would be a good fit for Trigg’s talents if he chooses to retire.
