Frank Trigg Likely To Retire If UFC Drops Contract

MMAJunkie.com talked to Dana White and Frank Trigg following UFC 103:

Following the Sept. 19 event, UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Trigg probably won't get another fight in the organization. If that's the case, Trigg today said, his career is likely over.

“I think Trigg is one of those guys (like Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipovic),” White said after the conclusion of the UFC 103 post-fight press conference. “These (other) guys are young and explosive. There's just a whole other level of talent out there, man, and that's the way it works. That's the way this business is.”

So, will he give it some thought before terminating the contract?

“I doubt it,” White shrugged. “He got smoked tonight.”

“I made a stupid mistake,” Trigg said. “I stood on his foot in the corner, and I got caught with a punch.”

If White does go through with his plans to cut Trigg, the 37-year-old fighter said his career has likely concluded.

“If they say I'm done, I'm done,” he said. “If the UFC cuts me, I'm done fighting. I don't have the strength or determination to go fight in the minor leagues anymore. I've done it before.

“I didn't come back here for one fight … so I could say I retired as a UFC fighter. I came back to make a run at a title fight. I want to fight. But if they're done with me, that's it.”
