yeah trigg won 2nd round by soccer kicks. I bet a lot of mayhem fans are upset about this
is the tracker working for anybody?
yeah, i saw the results because i couldn't wait. trigg by soccer kicks in the 2nd
I didn't even know that Icon allowed soccer kicks to the head
I want to see this fight now, for sure...also I think maybe Mayhem would start rethinking his "I can take a beating" gameplan
oh shit, mayhem lost this puts trigg back on the map for sure
52,000 people on Mayhem's myspace and no one has said anything yet
Do they allow that shit?
no sanctioning body in hawaii...pretty much anything goes there...in Rumble on the Rock i know they allow both elbows AND knees/stomps on the ground
but no upkicks?
I know how organizations can choose their own rules that areoperating outside of sanctioning bodies such as the NSAC or CSAC, I just figured that if they didn't allow upkicks they wouldn't allow stomps/soccer kicks to the head on the ground either
anyways, mmaweekly has some pictures...they only took 3 pictures for the main event
what is your problem dude, first of all that was an accident by the adminstrator and second how is that relevant to anything
i doubt there will be a vid for a long time for this...they still haven't gotten a vid for Mayhem vs Lawler
you can find vids for Mayhem vs. Lawler, but they are shot from canvas level and not the great...but still I agree it will probably be a month before we can see the vid for it, which sucks
they should charge $2 a pop for it on the net or something, I'd pay
Great. So Pride will continue to say that Trigg "is one of the best active mma fighters in the world".
now I want Trigg vs Lawler
sounded like a great fight...Mayhem had his back at one point
HONOLULU, Dec. 1 — After dropping three of his last four fights due to submissions, almost everyone counted Frank Trigg (Pictures) out against the younger, submission savvy Jason "Mayhem" Miller. But Friday night at ICON Sport’s “Unstoppable,” Trigg would not be denied in his comeback quest for the Icon middleweight belt, scoring a technical knockout over the champion in the second round.
Trigg stalked Miller around the ring, defending takedown attempts and taking the fight to “Mayhem”. The nearly 6,000 fans filling Oahu’s Neal S. Blaisdell Arena collectively gasped as Trigg walked into trouble early in the first round, giving up his back and standing-up into a rear-naked choke attempt from Miller that was eerily reminiscent of Trigg’s wars with Matt Hughes (Pictures).
“I didn’t panic this time,” Trigg told Sherdog.com after the fight. “I knew that I had to stay patient. It just was a case of me maintaining my position, making sure I always control the wrist, control the hand, and then throwing elbows whenever I can and then getting him off my back as quickly as possible without using too much energy, just picking the spot and picking the pace.”
But “Twinkle Toes” prevailed, escaping from back-control before eventually turning the tables by taking Miller’s back. “Mayhem” was able to defend against the choke, but appeared to have no answer for Trigg’s strength, as he was put on his back again and punished with kicks and punches.
With PRIDE rules in full effect, Trigg continued dishing out soccer kicks and punches to the head of the downed champion. Referee Yuji Shimada watched closely as “Mayhem” did his best to avoid the punishment as the final seconds of the first round ticked off the clock.
The second frame was more of the same. Trigg kept the pressure on, landing some good shots on the feet before once again putting Miller against the ropes and on his back. Trigg put on the pressure and let loose with a vicious flurry of brutal kicks and heavy hands that overwhelmed the champ and opened up a large cut over his eye.
With Miller seemingly defenseless and obviously taking damage, Shimada had no choice but to call a stop to the bout at the 2 minute, 53 second mark of the second round, giving Trigg the win and making him the new ICON Sport middleweight champion.
“Didn’t you see the fight? I got lickins!,” joked the dethroned Miller in his post-fight interview.
Big ups to Trigg. Sounds like he had a game plan and stayed composed.
Shoot... Miller is one of my favorites... Trigg is/was a top 170 contender, just not on par with a Hughes, GSP, or probably even Bj... Maybe 185 is a better weight for him??
Didn't he let chechen work with his highschool wrestling team?
