Since Trigg says he isn't fighting Filho

Who does the WEC have to fight him? I was looking at there MW's and the only two that they have on there that have are known are Riggs and Mayhem and both have left. So do you guys think they'll sign a free agent to take him on or try and to sign Frank Trigg again?

Not that I don't believe you or anything like that Legend but you got a link?

I got no idea who they could bring in...or maybe try and have Franklin drop down?

BTW Riggs isn't under contract with Zuffa any longer they let him out of his deal.

Mayhem vs Filho is basically going to be Filho lying on Mayhem controlling him but it is two big names.

Honestly I don't think their is a worse org/fighter match than Filho and the WEC. I mean the WEC is all about exictment and Filho isn't.

Woah. Link to an article please?

And bbjd, Filho's last fight with Doerkson was pretty entertaining to me. He showed good striking, KO'ing the guy who's "only chance" was on the feet.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Yeah Mayhem is fighting Sean Salmon. Sean wrote about it in his article with MMAJunkie.com

And with Riggs fighting in Strikeforce, the WEC has no real challenge for Filho. They have to bring in Trigg, I think, cause he's the only logical free agent that is at the WEC's level. I can't think of any logical fights other than that.

I'll admit his last fight was pretty entertaining. and when he faces guys he is far better than he seems to dominate and once in a while chooses to finish. But then he'll fight Ninja who has a decent ground game and can reverse him if he makes a mistake and he just lies there. If he goes to the ground with Mayhem (which he obviously won't now) I don't think he would make any moves that could get reversed which would lead him to lay and praying just like usual.
