Since his return from a self-imposed retirement, Frank Trigg has taken both of his fights at middleweight. In December, he took Jason Miller’s ICON middleweight title and last night in Las Vegas, Trigg put on a dominating performance against top ten fighter Kazuo Misaki.
Despite his impressive performances at middleweight, Trigg still hasn’t made a decision to continue his career in the ring. Faced with other career avenues, such as his position as a Pride broadcaster and owner of his own clothing line, he is in a new position where he doesn’t have to fight to make a living.
Last-minute replacement James Lee made an impressive debut in Pride. Travis Wiuff was initially slated to face Kazuhiro Nakamura, but Nakamura had to withdraw due to a knee injury. Despite his last minute status and some major weight cutting to make the fight, Lee was able to take care of Wiuff in just 39 seconds.
