I am in no way a Hermes Franca fan but he will beat Edgar. He is stronger, has experience, far superior grappling, and definately hits harder than Frankie. Frankie would not be able to use his wrestling like Sherk did because he is not stronger than Hermes and he would not survive the submissions that Sherk did.
Edgar is a great fighter. I think he'll out box Hermes and beat him on the ground too. I'm shocked that so many of you think Hermes is going to win. Edgar has only lost to Gray who has become an awesome fighter. Gray used his reach real well to out box Frank. That's not going to happen against Hermes. Frank beat both Spencer Fisher and Tyson Griffin standing. I think both are probably better strikers than Hermes.
I had to drop points on Franca because I really see this one going either way, but with the odds I gotta give the nod to Franca. For some reason I see him coming back with a vengeance after th Sherk debacle.
