Hermes Franca is a b level fighter....He has horrible stikes, NO wrestling skills, and subpar submissions.... He wont even be able to last 3 rounds with Sherk, much less 5 rounds.
Sherk by GnP rd 2



LMFAO. His jits is sickkkkkkk, and he throws bombs on the feet. He can KO almost anyone with a punch, and submit nearly everyone in the UFCs LW division. Even though the first half of your post was retarded, the outcome sounds pretty legit.




Subbing UFC's lightweight division right now is by far an unincredible task. Throwin bombs is one thing, but in no way does that mean he has remotely good striking...His subs?! Who has he subbed that is even noteworthy?

23 pro fights 11 wins by submission. 5 out of his last 6 fights have been won by submission. He must be awfull on the ground. Out side of MMA his black belt and the fact he was the BJJ instructor for the America Top Team speak for them selves.

No one would question how great BJ Penn and Matt Sera are on the ground, but if you look at thier careers who have they submitted? Niether one of them has submitted anyone for over 3 years. Using your thought process they must suck at BJJ as well.

nate is very good and he was beating but in this moment i think franca can submit him again and Ko him, hermes has heavy hands and is better on the stand up now

No one knows he only has 2 losses because he hasn't defeated anyone worth mentioning. Nate Diaz is the highlight of Sean's career, and was one of the worst fights ever. Not because I don't apreciate GNP, but because the whole fight consisted of Nate sprawling for 2 minutes, the Sherk getting the take down, Diaz standing back up, and repeat. Outside of Diaz who does Sherk hold a victory over that should be impressive? Karro when he was 17? The unstoppable Ken Flo who is 5-3 in MMA but got a title shot? Sean may be the most overated Champ in the world.
