Frank Trigg Released By HDNet For Alleged Spousal Abuse & Adultery

By Mark Carrillo:
Former UFC fighter, Frank Trigg has been relieved of his duties as a commentator for HDNet for alleged domestic violence and having an improper relationship with a co-worker.

Trigg allegedly choked his wife unconscious in front of their children back in October of 2011, and is now in the middle of a very messy divorce.

As if that wasn’t enough, he was also found to be having an affair with a 23 year old assistant producer for HDNet. The company did not approve of the improper relationship he was having or the allegations of abuse, and in turn they have fired him from his job as a commentator.

Trigg, who was also a former commentator for Pride, did the play-by-play commentary for several different MMA promotions that aired on the popular HDNet channel, including Dream and Legacy Fighting Championships.

Many are used to seeing Trigg side by side with the animated Michael Schiavello, but for now Schiavello will be without his friend.

There are many unanswered questions at this time, and Trigg has chosen not to comment on any of it, only stating, “he does not comment on personal business”.

    And let’s not forget, Trigg penned the “Ask Trigg” love advice column for years. How ironic is that.

      If by “penned a column for years” you mean “a few months, and it was surprisingly well received and popular”, you’d be correct. Dude allegedly roughed up his wife (which, for all intents and purposes, may very well be true), and for that he deserves no respect… But I’m astonished that a site such as would run such gossipy news with the only “source” being a website such as – yet had the sense to NOT source them. Yahoo fell into the same hits-craving trap. It’s embarrassing for both sites, and I’m somewhat disappointed that I’ll no longer be frequenting this site or yahoo.

      Come on give Trigg a break he couldn’t win a fight to save his life so he showed who he really is and took it out on his wife. punk ass woman beater. Frank Triggs days in MMA business are all but over

  2. Xaninho says:

    Was it a rear naked choke or a triangle choke?

  3. Xaninho says:

    She should have tapped.

  4. Joseph Colunga says:

    @xaninho you’re an asshole for that

  5. DMAC says:

    Trigg can’t get a relivent win so he takes it out on his wife, sad case. And he was always talking about his wife and family with the upmost, no ones perfect but damnit man.

    Nooo She Wasn’t Ready *Kevin Hart Voice*

    Later “Twinkle Toes.”

  8. Ko_King says:

    He is that shit I’m surprised she never got out the choke and fucked him up!

  9. McLovin says:

    Never liked Trigg and his shady fight tactics anyways. Maybe they’ll find someone a bit more relevant.

  10. Lo says:

    He obviously needs more practice with the rear naked choke, considering he always lost because of them.

  11. John C. says:

    I wonder what the other woman looks like…

  12. koolG says:

    with a name like twinkle toes is anyone really surprised?

  13. MJ says:

    He like to get in fights with announcers also, he is basically a bald, wife beating punk, with short man’s complex and no rnc defense.

  14. Joe "High Kick" Rogan says:

    Frank Trigg is 1 and 0 against his bitch. He won with an impressive choke. Two more good wins like that and I say he needs to be back in the UFC.
