On this week's episode I welcomed UFC Hall of Famer Mr. Frank 'Twinkle Toes' Trigg into the virtual studio. Frank is a former mixed martial arts fighter, Actor and Stunt performer for TV and Film, colour commentator, television personality, radio host, and MMA spokesman. He has been involved in the combat sports industry, in some capacity, for more than 15 years. As a fighter, Frank Trigg has fought for some of the most prestigious fight promotions in the world, including Ultimate Fighting Championship, PRIDE Fighting Championships, Rumble on the Rock, Icon Sport and World Fighting Alliance.
Trigg began his fight career in 1996 fighting for various upstart promotions and got his big break in 1999 when he signed on to fight for PRIDE Fighting Championships. Trigg made his debut for the promotion at Pride 8, where he clinched an impressive TKO victory over Fabiano Iha. The Olympic trials wrestling finalist and second degree Judo Black Belt went on to claim numerous titles, including the World Fighting Alliance Welterweight World title and the Icon Middleweight Championship title.
Trigg Stopped fighting in 2011 to pursue acting and stunt work full-time. Frank Trigg is revered as much for his accolades in the cage as he is for his unpredictable humour, first-hand knowledge of the sport, and expert commentating. He is recognized worldwide as a colour commentator, popular radio and television personality, and MMA spokesperson. It is safe to say that the success of this American mixed martial artist extends well beyond the cage. As an Interviewer Trigg can be seen giving one of a kind interviews on MmaOddsBreaker.com with fighters from different promotions.
As a radio personality, Trigg is the former co-host of the MMAWeekly.com radio show and TAGG radio. On television, Trigg has appeared on the VH1 reality show ‘Kept” where he tried to win the affections of former supermodel Jerry Hall, and was also featured on an episode of the popular sitcom ‘King of Queens, Hawaii Five-0, Murder in the first, Houdini, The Bridge and NCIS LA just to name a few. A few of the films he has been in are Red Belt, Frank and Lola, Awakening, Street and is currently filming Any Which Way They Come.
When he is not busy acting and training for stunts, the dedicated father of four devotes his time to his family and to giving back to the community through youth mentoring, involvement with Phi Beta Sigma fraternity and motivational speaking. Trigg is also very active on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter and Instagram.
