Two-time welterweight title challenger Frank Trigg is returning to the UFC after more than three years away and he has his sights set on another run at the 170-pound title.

One of the fight game’s most charismatic figures, the 37-year old Trigg wrestled for the University of Oklahoma and competed in the 2000 Olympic trials, but it has been in mixed martial arts where he has truly made his mark. A pro since 1997, Trigg (19-6) made appearances in PRIDE, Shooto, and the WFA before debuting in the UFC in 2003 against welterweight champion Matt Hughes. Trigg fell short in that bout, but after wins over Dennis Hallman and Renato Verissimo, he engaged in a rematch with Hughes at UFC 52 in 2005 that is considered one of the greatest bouts in UFC history, despite his submission defeat to the future Hall of Famer.

Trigg’s first stint in the UFC ended later that year after a defeat to Georges St-Pierre, but the Rochester, New York native has since been on a tear, winning seven of nine bouts, including victories over Ronald Jhun, Mayhem Miller, Kazuo Misaki, Edwin Dewees, and Falaniko Vitale. Currently riding a four fight winning streak, Trigg is a welcome addition to an already stacked welterweight division.

A date and opponent for Trigg’s UFC return has not been determined.
