Mike Trizano isn’t interested in the trash-talking side of the game. He lets his performances speak for themselves.
Unlike some of the other cast members on the show, the Ultimate Fighter 27 lightweight winner wasn’t much of a character. He didn’t need to be.
Trizano defeated Thailand Clark and John Gunther to land a spot in the finale against Joe Giannetti. He came into that fight a slight underdog, but he exited with the TUF trophy and a UFC contract.
After his most recent win against Luis Pena, Trizano made the decision to drop down to featherweight, and he will make his 145-pound debut at UFC Fight Night 152 against Grant Dawson.
Before the fight, Trizano spoke with John Hyon Ko of The Body Lock about training at Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts, his approach to fighting and the task at hand in Rochester, New York.
