PostSubject: ICON Sport Results ***Spolier***   Sun 01 Apr 2007, 1:20 pm





"Ruthless" Robbie Lawler knocked out Frank Trigg in the fourth round to regain the ICON Sport Middleweight Championship at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday night.
The main event of ICON Sport "Epic" was just that: Epic. Frank Trigg looked to be in control of the fight in the first round, securing multiple takedowns and working his ground and pound offense within Lawler's guard. Round two saw Lawler rebound, landing big shots that sent Trigg to the canvas on two seperate occasions.
Trigg came back and won round three, but was brutally knocked out by a combination of punches from Lawler mid-way the fourth round.
Also on the card, Jason "Mayhem" Miller dominated his opponent, and Renato "Charuto" Verissimo moved into potential ICON title contention.
Miller looked very impressive and made quick work of Hector Urbina, knocking him out early in round one, while Verissimo took out Lars Havens by TKO after getting the fight to the ground and transitioning to the mount position.
The ICON Middleweight division has a new contender, a new champion with a familiar face, and several interesting potential match-ups on the table. Let the rematches begin.

FULL RESULTS:
-Robbie Lawler def. Frank Trigg by KO in Round 4
-Renato "Charuto" Verissimo def. Lars Havens by TKO (referee stoppage due to strikes) early in Round 1

I think Trigg was in control all the way up to the point of him getting caught with that combo..Trigg worked the jab and came in behind it with the Thai clinch and landed good knees. Lawler looked like he lured Trigg in and gave him a false sense of security on their feet. That is what happen when you stand in front of a puncher, good game plan Frank but you were too stationary at the end of the fight.

Yeah but most of everything he threw after the first round Lawler was slipping and rolling with…That just takes the power away from the shot…Lawler was landing all the hard blows you could just see it coming !!! Trigg was done after he got his nose broke in the second I’m not saying he quit but that was the beginning of the end …Trigg has heart he kept coming and taking hard shots and giving them back his chin is great no one punch did him in it was exhaustion and a nasty 4 punch comb…

Trigg took too many hard shots in the second round. He became very sluggish and never recovered. At that point, it looked like Lawler was kind of toying with him letting Trigg keep throwing punches and picking his spots to throw more big shots. The ending was very tough to watch.

I agree completely I thought Lawler could have ended it earlier if he wanted he just hung around slipping and rolling with punches let Trigg wear himself out and punished him I hope Trigg is ok!

Same here. Physically and mentally. In interviews I've seen him do, he talked about how he has fallen into deep depressions after a loss.

He will almost for sure want to go back to broadcasting and his clothing line he was talking about that before that he didn’t need the money so why keep fighting! He said he would fight in Icon until he lost the belt...
I don’t know what that means for Pride/UFC...
