Hermes is an awesome fighter, i think he should be welcomed back with some top fights and in the immediate race for the title again
i get it man u like franca
hell hes a sick lw
you cant compare the number one hw in the world to franca
it just dosnt work
fedor will get an instant title shot....because.....dana dosnt want to loose out on any revenue....also keep in mind....that fedor has said on more than one occasion...that he dosnt want to have his first fight in the ufc for the title....
now hermes did somthing he shouldnt have done.....and therefore hes suspended....and should have to start at the bottom of the barrel simple as that....which sucks because if im not mistaken his 33 and will be 34 when he gets back into the octagon....
now as for your this isnt five years ago statement....your right....because five years ago....a guy like hermes would have been welcomed back with a tune up fight.....and then given a shot at regaining contendership
