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”.
