Trigg, Monson, Sokoudjou, Other UFC Vets Slated for Israel FC

Frank Trigg, Jeff Monson, Ricco Rodriguez, Hermes Franca, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett, Daniel Gracie and Shonie Carter are all slated to compete in Israel on Nov. 9 for the Israel Fighting Championship group.

The matchups after the jump.

Former UFC heavyweight title contender Monson refuses to let age slow down his work schedule. When he faces Sergey Shemetov on Nov. 9, the American Top Team heavyweight will be fighting for his eight time this year.

Trigg, who fell out of active competition after his February loss to Matt Serra, will return to action against Roy Neeman.

Former UFC champ Rodriguez recently pulled out of a Bellator 31 fight against Dave Herman due to a knee injury and his spot on the card is not 100%. However, if the fight goes through, he is scheduled to meet KSW veteran Daniel Tabera.

This past Friday Franca came out of retirement and lost again to Eric Wisely, whom Franca lost to in January. He'll look to snap a three-fight losing streak against Moshe Kaitz.

Sokoudjou lost to Houston Alexander at Shark Fights 13 and will look to bounce back against Lithuania's Valdas Pocevicius.

The full lineup:

Jeff Monson vs. Sergey Shemetov
Frank Trigg vs. Roy Neeman
Ricco Rodriguez vs. Daniel Tabera
