As time goes on and more people jump on the MMA news bandwagon, you better beleive there’s gonna be more false and misleading information floating around. In this case, the false news was that Trigg/Filho was a done deal for December:



Despite a published report last week to the contrary, Frank Trigg (15-6) says he has not been offered a bout with World Extreme Cagefighting Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho (15-0) for its Dec. 12 event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The former UFC welterweight contender said he’d been told that the Brazilian Top Team member has been presented with a bout agreement bearing Trigg’s name, though he has not received the complimentary paperwork on his end. Trigg has not been contacted by WEC officials, but said he is open to the bout.

What the h*ll? I was also under the impression that this was a done deal. Wonder who "leaked" it before it was even discussed b/t the fighters?

And no apparent mention of this on TAGG Radio? That's what really surprises me here. It's Trigg's station after all so for sure he'd have brought it up there.

im not even sure how something like this happens

how does paulo filho think this fight is happening and then trigg has no idea whatsoever


it reminds me of when Diego Sanchez was supposed to fight Mach Sakurai a few ufc's ago and Mach had no idea whatsoever he was on that card. He was at home on his couch when he got a call from someone wanting an interview lol

i would really like to see this fight because filho needs to be tested and i think twinkle toes can do it.I would have to give a slight advantage to paulo but it would easily be his biggest challenge.I really hate how people link false news though.

seems like a really bad match up for trigg to me. maybe he can outstrike him but i see him getting subbed or pounded out on the ground.

i still hope it happens as it is more interesting than anything else i can think of for filho except fighting silva in the ufc.

I knew this was going to turn out false and the admin on here had seriously jumped the gun adding it to the picks page, it may still happen but it was never reported from a valued source

Who else could Filho fight? cant think if any decent MW's in WEC?
Well they did have Mayhem and Riggs but let them go for retarded reason, wtf then?
