Shortly after inking a new deal with the UFC, Frank Trigg (19-6 MMA, 2-3 UFC) now has an opponent. The MMA veteran will face Josh Koscheck (12-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) at UFC 103 in Dallas.
Sources close to the event have recently confirmed the news of the bout to MMAJunkie.com.
Trigg will be making his first appearance in the UFC since 2005. He recently signed a four fight deal to return to the organization after back-to-back losses to Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes led to his release from the company four years ago.
Trigg is currently riding a four-fight win streak heading into his bout with Koscheck
After winning seven of his first eight fights in the UFC, Koscheck has gone just 3-3 in his last six fights. Tough decision losses to Georges St. Pierre and Thiago Alves are understandable but then came a surprising TKO defeat to Paulo Thiago in his most recent outing.
Koscheck will look to get back on track September 26 when he steps into the cage against Trigg.
