    agreed. granted filho's a good wrestler and is an iron blanket, but trigg can probably get underhooks and stuff his takedowns
    same, but trigg's still a savage. i still like the guy, despite being a very vanilla commentator :o

    now official


    Team Link: Thiago Silva and Paulo Filho join Gabriel Gonzaga in Ludlow, Mass., camp

    Props: MassLive.com
    Quoteworthy:

    “Gabriel Gonzaga put Ludlow on the mixed martial arts map. His manager, Marco Alvan, is trying to make sure it stays there. Alvan has added two renowned fighters to his Team Link stable, which already includes Gonzaga - a top heavyweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Thiago Silva is 11-0 and will fight at next month’s “UFC 78″ in Newark, N.J., while Paulo Filho is the middleweight champion of UFC’s sister promotion - World Extreme Cagefighting.”

    Interesting aside: In the article Filho confirms his rumored WEC 185-pound title bout against former UFC welterweight contender Frank Trigg on December 12. Good fight.

    and it's unofficial again :joshers:



    by Loretta Hunt
    www.fightnetwork.com

    Despite a published report last week to the contrary, Frank Trigg (15-6) says he has not been offered a bout with World Extreme Cagefighting Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho (15-0) for its Dec. 12 event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The former UFC welterweight contender said he’d been told that the Brazilian Top Team member has been presented with a bout agreement bearing Trigg’s name, though he has not received the complimentary paperwork on his end. Trigg has not been contacted by WEC officials, but said he is open to the bout.

    Dropping two straight in the Octagon in 2005, Trigg found success in Hawaii's Icon Sport promotion, cinching the middleweight title from Jason Miller last December via a second round TKO. Trigg lost the title to the hardhitting Robbie Lawler last March. The outspoken middleweight wrestler trains at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas.

    Filho recently transferred to the Team Link facility in Ludlow, Mass., home to UFC heavyweight competitor Gabriel Gonzaga. The undefeated Filho earned the WEC crown via a first round stoppage over Joe Doerksen at Aug. 5’s WEC 29 in Las Vegas.
