PRIDE and UFC veteran Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg made his debut on Tagg Radio this past week. Trigg told listeners he had no new information on the Fertitta’s purchase of PRIDE but he did state that his services are no longer being rendered.
“All I know is there is a gentleman there by the name of Jamie who is supposively going to be the new president. Works for the UFC currently right now and he is getting ready to move his wife and family over there and that’s all I know. I didn’t get spoken to by anybody, ah nobody else was there from the powers that be so I don’t know what’s going on. As of right now to my knowledge I believe my services are no longer being rendered.”
Trigg also said he is still looking to fight but he isn’t currently under contract with any organization. His fight against Robbie Lawler was the last on his Icon Sport contract and his PRIDE contract was only a one-fight deal.
So as of right now, Frank Trigg’s future with PRIDE is in limbo but we should know more come May 1st.
