Hermes França disputes UFC belt

The Brazilian faces Sean Sherk for lightweight title.

Yet another Brazilian will have a chance of strapping on the most coveted belt in MMA at the moment. After an impeccable 2006, with seven wins in seven fights, the Brazilian earned the right to face the current champion of the division, the American Sean Serk. The battle is set for UFC 71, on the seventh of April, the same day Anderson Silva returns to the octagon.

“Thank God I have made it to this point,” says Hermes exclusively to “I am training a lot," the leader of team The Armory tells. And the Brazilian will need all the training he can get, as Sherk has an impressive re”ord of 31 wins and only two losses. As he has been injured, the American has not fought since October of last year.
