Frank Trigg Still Has The Fight

Frank Trigg isn't calling it a career yet.

The man nicknamed Twinkle Toes is making a comeback to the sport of MMA. On November 9th Trigg is expected to face Roy Neeman in Tel Aviv, Israel for the International Fighting Championship. This will be Trigg's first fight since June 2nd where he was defeated by Matt Serra at UFC 109.

Trigg is no stranger to the sport as he has compiled over 27 fights in his career with his first fight in the Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation. Trigg has had a long career in the UFC organization with his first appearance being at UFC 45.

After his fight at UFC 109, Trigg was contemplating retirement and told MMA Junkie that he was on the fence at the time and wasn't going to make a decision. Being 38 years old Trigg is being looked at his career almost being over but with people like Randy Couture you can't rule him fighting up to that age and possibly beyond.

Trigg does train out of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Nevada and currently is an HD NET broadcaster that covers MFC, Dream, and World Victory Road. Trigg has being staying busy outside of the octagon as he is a contributor to the new Tapout VTC website which is expected to debut in early November.

Trigg's opponent Roy Neeman even though only one official fight under his belt, has been training karate for a few years. He is currently one of the few people in Israel to hold a black belt in BJJ. He has been a part of many karate tournaments and is very well known throughout his native country.

This fight will be interesting for both fightersm as Trigg is looking to get back on his winning ways and for Neeman who is looking to make an early impact on his MMA career. Both men are sure to put on a great fight for the fans in Israel and both look to start different part of their MMA careers on the winning side.
