Frank Trigg wins at 'Rumble in Race Town'

Frank Trigg fought his last fight as a middleweight Saturday, unanimously outpointing Danny Babcock in the main event of "Rumble in Race Town" in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Trigg began his career as a welterweight and while he was successful, Trigg couldn't get pass the likes of Matt Hughes (twice), Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit. But Trigg's career was rejuvenated when he came across a title opportunity in December 2006 with the Hawaii-based Icon Sport promotion as a middleweight.

Trigg stopped fan favorite Jason "Mayhem" Miller to win the belt and in his next fight, earned himself a spot as a top ten middleweight with a victory over PRIDE GP winner Kazuo Misaki.

Six-time UFC competitor Terry Martin continued his slump, losing to Zak Cummings via split decision. Martin has dropped five of his last seven, three of which were knockout losses.

Results:

1. Ryan Keenan def. Blake Bowman via TKO (strikes) - R1
2. Gilbert Burgos def. Chris Thorne via TKO (cut) - R1
3. TJ Cook def. Scott Harper via TKO (strikes) - R1
4. Todd Cutler def. Jeremy May via TKO (strikes) - R1
5. Marcus Jones def. John Juarez via TKO (strikes) - R1
6. Jesse Taylor def. Steve Ramos via submission (RNC) - R2
7. Zak Cummings def. Terry Martin via split decision
8. Frank Trigg def. Danny Babcock via unanimous decision
