Frank Trigg is all for the UFC bringing women into their promotion. His biggest question is how the UFC moves ahead after Ronda Rousey has her first fight, as he doesn’t see a stable division in place.
“They shouldn’t have given [the belt] to her,” said Trigg to MMA Weekly. “She should have fought for it. If she wins, now who does she fight? The UFC didn’t put together a women’s division. They put together a fight.”
The fight Trigg mentions is Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche at UFC 157. UFC president Dana White said that after the two meet for Rousey’s bantamweight championship, more female MMA fights would be announced. The UFC has not commented on other females who have signed with the promotion.
Trigg hasn’t fought since 2011, but is yet to make an official announcement regarding his future in the sport.
The first UFC female fight takes place February 23 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA and will be the main event.
