Back in September, reports populated all the ‘internets’ that Frank Trigg was going to be dropped by the UFC not from his loss to Josh Koscheck at UFC 103, but from Trigg signing a contract to appear in EA Sports MMA.
The real reason Frank Trigg was dropped from his UFC contract and then quickly undropped? Dana White was furious when he found out Trigg was a part of the upcoming EA Sports MMA video game. White had decreed no one who had signed with EA, in competition with his own UFC games, would ever fight for his promotion. When he found out about Trigg, White was livid. Cooler heads prevailed, but look for Trigg to get another tough fight. If he loses again, he’s gone.
We told you guys about it months ago and no one really believed us. It’s cool. Sometimes we don’t even believe ourselves. Tonight, EA Sports MMA dropped the news that Frank Trigg has signed with EA Sports MMA and all we can say is ‘I told you so, sucker’.
