“If he’s awake, I’ll shake his hand.”

– Hermes Franca shares his prediction with InsideFighting.com on his upcoming fight against Marcus Aurelio at UFC 90: “Silva vs. Cote” at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., on October 25. He intends to finish his former Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor and camp member at American Top team (ATT) — a good back story that most of you should check out prior to the lightweight showdown if you haven’t already. Despite the bad intentions, both fighters insist that bad blood is not boiling over after their shared and spotty past. In fact, Franca and Aurelio intend to go about this as professionals, indicating that it is not personal. Uh-huh …

This isn't a fight thats going to get finished. Both fighters, i think, will be content planning for and winning by a decision. It has all the potential to be an exciting fight, but i just have a feeling it won't be. At first i was bummed it wasnt on the main card, but after thinking about it, i wont miss it. As of now, i'm thinking franca UD. If i switch anything, it would be to aurelio UD.
