Trigg says Jacare isn't happening.

Frank Trigg (16-6) says there's no truth to a report that he's signed to fight Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (7-1) in the April 29 DREAM middleweight grand prix.

A report out of Japan prompted a rash of stories about the Trigg-Souza fight and other bouts. And while Trigg has no idea about the status of the other the fights, he tells MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that reports of his supposed bout with Souza have no merit.

"I'm literally sitting in a car right now trying to get to Wrigley Field to throw out a first pitch," Trigg said. "I haven't heard anything from [DREAM] in about a week and a half. We started talking about a month ago, but lately, there's been no communication. I really haven't even thought about it lately."

If Trigg were to fight in the tournament, he'd have to leave in just four days. And he doesn't even have a visa to travel to Japan.

"We have no contract, and we have no numbers we're even close to agreeing on," he said.

Trigg also said he was unlikely to fight for DREAM unless the event were to air on HDNet. Without an American audience, "it does no good for the my brand as a fighter, broadcaster, writer or for my company Triggonomics," he said. "No one would see me."

Trigg confirmed that HDNet has been in ongoing negotiations with DREAM executives to pick up the event ("HDNet CEO Andrew Simon has been working his butt off to get it," Trigg said), but as far as he knows, a deal still hasn't been reached.

Trigg says he tried to quelch the rumors of the Souza fight with phone calls, message board postings, and even his own radio show, TAGG Radio.

"Like I mentioned on TAGG, my wife is very pregnant and can't fly," Trigg said. "She'd miss the whole tournament, and that's a big deal for to take a fight without her there by my side."

In addition to Trigg vs. Souza, reports out of Japan mentioned tournament bouts of Ikuhisa Minowa vs. Taiei Kin, Shungo Oyama vs. Yoon Dong Sik, and Zelg Galesic vs. Magomed Sultanakhmadov. All of the fights are currently listed on DREAM's official website.

MMAjunkie.com couldn't confirm the status of those reported fights.

Bouts previously confirmed for the event were Denis Kang vs. Gegard Mousasi, Andrews Nakahara vs. Kazushi Sakuraba, and Masakatsu Fuanki vs. Kiyoshi Tamura. Shinya Aoki and Gesias Calvancante meet in a (non-tournament) main event at the DREAM event.

I hope so too man. That would give DREAM an American audience and would work out for both companies.

I'm sure it will. HDNet has become my new favorite source for MMA info (second only to the forums). HDNet brings in everything to do with MMA and televises it for my viewing pleasure (and my wife's disdain) other than UFC. I'm perfectly okay with the SpikeTV relationship with the UFC since I get that channel too. As soon as EliteXC gets on CBS on a regular basis, my satisfaction will be complete and my DVR will be full. muahahaha

I really like Frank, it sounds like he's right on point here too. to bad they aren't fighting, it would be a good fight.
