Icon Sport Signs Frank Trigg vs. Mayhem Miller

September 18, 2006 Honolulu, HI. Frank “Twinkle Toes” Trigg, the former number one U.F.C. welterweight contender, is back. And he's hoping to stop the “Mayhem.”

On Friday, December 1st Trigg will square off with Jason “Mayhem” Miller for the Icon Sport World Middleweight Title. This will be Mayhem's first title defense in the middleweight division.

Like Mayhem and Robbie Lawler before him, Trigg is moving up from welterweight (170lbs) to middleweight (185lbs) in Icon Spot.

Trigg recently considered retiring from MMA, but his non-stop training regimen indicates that he is anything but retired. In the last few months Trigg has intensified his workouts under legendary grappler and trainer Rico Chiapparelli. He has also focused on strength training, and is rumored to be both fit and agile at 200-plus pounds.

When not training, Trigg serves as the color commentator for Pride Fighting Championships broadcasts on Fox Sports Net.
