DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA – Fighter and broadcaster Frank Trigg is ready to make his 2009 debut with Xtreme Cagefighting Federation at the DynaPep “Rumble In Race Town” Saturday, Feb. 14 at the Daytona Beach Ocean Center. Coming off three straight wins, Trigg is ready to keep his win streak alive in the main event.
Trigg is a veteran of the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Pride Fighting Championships with fourteen of his eighteen wins being finishes. “I am excited to be headlining at XCF’s ‘Rumble In Race Town’ and working with Bland Sports to bring MMA to a whole new audience. We had several options this year for fights, but NASCAR racing and the Daytona 500 is the biggest of the big. So fighting the night before the 500 is something I could not turn down. Come February 14th my engine will be primed and ready to roll.” said Trigg.
For the first time in mixed martial arts and motor sports history, both sports will share the same city on the same weekend. “What more could the fan base of both sports ask for in one weekend?” says Doug Bland, Founder of Xtreme Cagefighting Federation. “With over 200,000 people expected in Daytona that weekend, it allows the Xtreme Cagefighting Federation the opportunity to help make history by introducing each sports fan base to something new.”, says Bland who has 14 years of experience in Motorsports. “Having Frank Trigg to help make that introduction of MMA to racing fans is incredible.” he added.
Also scheduled to fight on the card are former UFC fighter’s Terry Martin, Jesse Taylor and Jeremy May. Along with former All-Pro Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defensive End, Marcus Jones and Daytona’s very own Todd Cutler.
