Welterweight Frank Trigg received the same news that Tim Hague, Phillipe Nover and Mark Coleman got earlier today … his services will no longer be needed by the UFC.

Trigg confirmed his unemployment status with MMAJunkie on Wednesday evening and stated that he wanted to keep the news quiet until he let his family and friends know first.

Trigg was put to sleep by Matt Serra in the 1stRound of their UFC 109 bout this past weekend, however preceded that performance with another knockout loss to Josh Koscheck at UFC 103.

Clearly, both events led to the UFC’s decision to let Trigg go once again.

After a good run at middleweight outside of the UFC, Trigg decided to return to the world’s premier MMA promotion at 170-pounds but just couldn’t find the magic he had re-captured outside of the Octagon.

It’s unclear whether the 37-year-old will return to fighting or look to continue his career as a respected MMA color commentator.

He holds a 19-8 professional record.
