I think that this fight will be a war! I'm picking Trigg to win, Misaki has had alot of luck here lately and I think it's going to end. Misaki beat a horrible looking Dan Henderson that didn't look like he wanted to fight he just stood in the ring looking at Misaki lol. Lost to Filho. Then beat a badly hurt Dennis Kang. I don't see why people are picking Misaki to win. Trigg is coming off a huge win over very talented Miller and beat him fairly easily. I think that Trigg will pull out the Dec. after a crazy exciting fight.

Who do you think is going to win and why?

Kinda useless poll since you just have to check the picks and you know the real result.

But if you did it because you wanted to know the reason behind the pick I understand you.
I feel kinda stupid but I just wouldn't be able to stand the thought of an almost retired Trigg with back to back losses in the 170 division beating the guy who won the freakin 183 pound GP and beat Denis Kang in the finals.

I know it might be a pretty big possibility but I just don't want it to happen. I don't want any idiots doing MMAth all over the place saying Trigg is one of the best 183-185er in the world.

Hopefully Misaki has more tools in his box to beat Trigg and I also think his boxing is a little sharper.

I pick Misaki.

I don't see Trigg winning at all. just because Trigg beat Mayhem mean nothing. Misaki fight with top 10 fighters, and Trigg haven't at middleweight.

Misaki is no top 5er, but neither is trigg. Misaki seems to still have room for improvement. I think Trigg has shown what he has and was lucky to get such a dominant win so late in his career. And who doesn't lose to filho? So far he looks to be the man to rule the 183/5 lbs divisions for the next few years. I think the only way this goes to decision is if it is boring. If it is exciting, I'm sure one of them will end it. I'm going w/ Misaki, mainly on a feeling.

Trigg looked great against Mayhem but Misaki has been going up against top competition and I'm expecting him to pull it out. My gut says Trigg will get the upset here though; this is one of the Pride fights that I'm really unsure of.

Yeah, this fight should be a good one. I was having a tough time choosing as well, but decided to go with Trigg. Could go either way in my opinion, but I feel Trigg can take this one home.

Trigg is getting kinda old for the fightgame. Before his match with miller he was + 200 lbs. We will never see him at WW again. I dont see him being able to use his size as much at 185. Seems like he won't have the same strength.

Misaki is starting to get hot and who knows how long it can last. He seems to have a lot of skill and he just has to fight smart and he would be tough for anyone to beat.

Trigg is past his prime...plain and simple, its all downhill from here for Frank

trigg i think has the tools and the experience......consistency has been his problem.....


never been a huge trigg fan, but nobody wants to see a fighter go out on a string of losses......win one and then retire

I think Trigg is an overratted fighter. Most of his fights that he has won is because of his "dirty" fighting style. I'm sure we can see Trigg punching Misaki a couple times in the face when the ref tells them to separate. And we'll see Trigg kick Misaki a couple times in the balls hoping the ref doesn't catch it. With those elements combined Trigg can pull something off. Trigg may take it to the distance but I don't think he's going to over whelm Misaki.

I agree that Trigg only wins if he fight's dirty.Masaki is a much more complete fighter IMO. I'd like it if Misaki nutted him first.

I think everyone underestimates Trigg. I don;'t know if he'll win but he will put up a heck of a fight. Don't forget he almost got Hughes.

I don't understand how you people think Trigg moving up in weight and then fighting one of the best in the division is a good sign at all. Trigg is just a well known face who is being brought in to be beat by their GP winner, Misaki.

Plus, Misaki's got that ballerific vest.
