I've been just searching around the net for the latest on Hermes Franca's UFC situation here, and it looks like he's been added to an upcoming pay per view...he's been granted his wish from Dana "It's Good To Be" White.

UFC 72 (July 7, 2007)

Middleweight Championship
Anderson Silva vs. Nathan Marquardt

Lightweight Championship
Sean Sherk vs. Hermes Franca

I know esv is gonna be happy.

i know this world is changin'

never gave up
i'm the only thing i'm afraid of

Yeah. It was funny GSP did it, but stale when Franca tried.

I dunno why he even did it, lol. It was stated before the fight that the winner would fight Sherk for the belt.

Yeah it was pretty stupid watching him get down on his knees after being told it was for the title shot already.
Did he not get the memo?

I'll let this slide...this time.

UFC 72 is starting to look pretty solid. I've wanted to see Sherk Franca for awhile and it'll be nice seeing Silva actually defend his title.

yeah i bet that swick must be pretty peeved right now since he has fought a bunch of tough guys and won and STILL no title shot. oh well. hermes will get GNP to death like kenny florian. kenny had good jiujitsu and decent takedown defense and pretty good standup, but sherk is like a freight train.

Kds13 will let it slide but I won't.

Fight Finder - Nathan Marquardt's Mixed Martial Arts Statistics
Shergog is your friend.

and it's spelled Marquardt.

Nate is an accomplished fighter with 4 straight wins in the UFC. his record is 25 wins with 6 loses. While yes Mike Swick has proven himself in the UFC he doesn't have the experience background to which Nate has. This is one reason he's being given a shot over Swick. Plus I think they want to "milk" Swick a bit more.

"You can light a fire for a man and he will be warm for a day."
OR
"You can light a man on fire and he'll be warm for a lifetime."

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

Probably did it for publicity. Even though people know him well hes still no Chuck Liddell or Tito Ortiz when it comes to the public, that little scene could have gotten people to look forward to Sherk vs. Franca seeing how he can pretty much TASTE the title.

Go Franca!

Psalm 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

Top 3 Favorite Fighters
1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia
