MMAJunkie has the scoop:

Veteran fighter Frank Trigg (19-6 MMA, 2-3 UFC) is returning to the Ultimate Fighting Championship after signing a four-fight deal with the organization.

Trigg, who's a daily host for MMAjunkie.com Radio, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) about the signing, which took nearly nine months to complete.

Trigg, who recently turned 37, went 2-3 in his first UFC stint from 2003-2005, but he's perhaps best remembered for two unsuccessful attempts at Matt Hughes' UFC welterweight title.

The Xtreme Couture fighter is expected to fight in late fall or early winter, though no specific date or opponent has yet been determined for his UFC return. Although he's competed as a middleweight in some recent fights, he'll remain at welterweight in the UFC.

As far as this "no specific date or opponent has yet been determined for his UFC return" business goes, there is a good chance that the UFC is planning Matt Hughes/Trigg 3..

There was serious bad blood between the two during Trigg's first tenure with the UFC, and their second match produced one of the most exciting moments in UFC history when Hughes slammed Trigg to the canvas after recovering from a groin shot.

Given the outcome of their past two matches, both of which Hughes won, giving them a third go at it could allow Hughes to exit the UFC on a high note.
