Yet. For reasons known only to a select few, UFC has decided not to cut Frank Trigg despite reports to the contrary recently. Trigg will now get at least one more fight in UFC, he has 3 fights left on his current contract.

On a side note...it seems like the UFC is beginning to just announce stuff to see the fans' reactions before they actually make a final decision.

good for him, hes not ready to retire and wants to show he can still compete and im glad theyre giving him another shot because he got handed a super tough opponent in kos. there are a lot of other fighters in the ufc that kos would wreck so im glad theyre giving trigg another go, and with a win he could probably finish his contract.

I would really love to see Trigg vs Serra, I think it would be great, they would throwing bombs at eachother and it would be a great fight for the fans. Even though Frank's last couple of performances have been really bad I still think he has something to offer the mma world.

I wouldn't mind seening Trigg replace Mike Goldberg as color commentator once he retires. Just a thought, no one shoot me over it.

Goldberg is the play by play guy, Rogan is the color guy.

im sorry bro but the difference meens very little to me in mma, goldberg is not a very good play by play guy IMO, he stumbles so much and rogan constantly steps in to make the correction, and I dont think that is opinion, all you have to do is go back and listen to him, UFN 19 would be a good start. Two good MMA guys would be solid, they could handle both ends of the deal and be very entertaining during live events, Goldberg is a sportscaster, allthough I like him there could be a much better fit with rogan. Colored caster/play by play is old school IMO.

Goldy and Rogan are both color and play by play commentator hybrids, Joe is more on the color side Goldy is more on the play by play side. Lets all just be glad Tito isnt commentating or this might happen again

I don't see why they would ever have bothered to sign him in the first place if they were going to cut him after that fight... They can't possibly have expected him to beat Koscheck. Unless they just wanted to get someone somewhat recognizable for Josh to hand his ass to after his upset against Paulo.

He should get another fight or two, they must have known that he wouldn't be even top10 in the welterweight division, why cut him after a loss to a top5 guy?
