Toronto, Canada October 18th, 2006 The Fight Network TM, North Americas first and only twenty-four (24) hour combatant sports and entertainment channel, announced today that Frank Trigg, a world-class mixed martial arts competitor and color commentator for PRIDE Fighting Championships, has joined The Fight Network broadcast team, as an on-air analyst for the Networks expanding news coverage for the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) across all of its distribution platforms of television, radio, mobile and web.
We are very excited to have Frank join our team of experts, said Mike Garrow, President of The Fight Network. Frank is a unique talent and selection from an on-air perspective given the fact that he is still an active competitor and coach in the sport who is very candid with his opinions and thoughts, which I feel will only add another exciting dimension for our consumers who come to The Fight Network looking for that edge with their news and analysis coverage each and everyday for MMA.
Frank Trigg is an American mixed martial arts fighter who has competed all over the world with such promotions as PRIDE Fighting Championships, UFC, Rumble on the Rock and the World Fighting Alliance. Frank has also coached wrestling at the University of Oklahoma, where he is also a graduate with a degree in Public Affairs. Triggs media experience comes in the form of various articles he has written for fight-orientated magazines and Internet websites that cover the sport of MMA. Trigg is the former co-host of the MMA Weekly radio show with the late Ryan Bennett and is the current color commentator for PRIDE Fighting Championships pay-per-view events. Trigg is also the owner of an urban athletic wear company called Triggonomics.
I am fired up, said Trigg. I never pull any punches when it comes to my views on the sport I love. Now with the multiple media platforms The Fight Network provides at my disposal, all I can say is tune in - there will be fireworks.
