Middleweight champion Frank Trigg will face Robbie Lawler in the main event of the Icon Sport: Epic card on March 31 at the Blaisdell Center Arena.
The championship bout was finalized this week by the Icon Sport organization.

Trigg will be making his first title defense since defeating Jason "Mayhem" Miller for the championship last December. Trigg, who trains in Las Vegas, recently defeated Japan's Kazuo Misaki in Las Vegas to improve to 15-5.

Trigg is now ranked No. 7 in the world in the 185-pound class by mmaweekly.com.

Lawler, who trains in Iowa, is 13-4. He held the Icon Sport middleweight championship belt for one year before losing to Miller last October.

Miller, Renato "Charuto" Verissimo and several other Hawai'i fighters are expected to fight on the undercard.

Tickets will go on sale Sunday at the Blaisdell box office and online at ticketmaster.com.

Trigg. We have all seen Robbies Ground game. And if he is on top he is decent. But on bottom he is in trouble esipcally against a guy like Trigg. Frank is too strong for Robbie and will be able to take him down for GNP at will.

I think this is very much depending on who can better impose there will. On the feet, I'm giving it to Lawler. On the ground, Trigg.

Trigg said this would be a tough fight for him and I agree, I see him getting the TD though and TKO'ing him semi-early. Just gota watch out for those bombs Robbie throws. Oh and quick questions...is this PPV available to order?

I dont believe ICON has a PPV. Im not sure why but i recall after Mahyme fought Gamlin he was interviewed. The interviewer asked why he was doing this if he wasnt gonna be on PPV. And mayhem jsut siad it was all about hte money.

So im gonna say no PPV. even though they have pretty decent events from what i hear.

I'd have to say that I think Trigg takes this one. Lawler better come in shape or Trigg will expose him. If Lawler does beat him, it will because of his normal 2 minute flurry of punches. All Trigg has to do is weather the storm of Lawler. After that, the fight is all his.

Have you seen Lawler fight? He is defintly a striker. I cant see Robbie winning this fight on the ground at all.
And Trigg is famous for getting Choked by Hughes and GSP............. the top two WW's in the world.

i saw an icon ppv and robbie lawler was fighting someone i cant remember whom.. but after lawler won some ladies came on stage all mad wanting to fight him.. silly hawaiian women!

if i was him i'd knock the women out 1 vs 1 just to impose fear into others.

yeah i was at that fight the big somoan broad who charged robbie was niko vitales sister and her cousin. they thought that robbie got a late hit in. hawaii is the ghettoest place on the planet im glad i moved((oh yeah icon sport definately does not have pay per view if you live there they usually show the fights on rumblevision like a month later)
