Hermes Franca was arrested in Oregon this week on multiple charges of Sexual Abuse and Unlawful Sexual Penetration. He is currently in Clackamas County Jail with bail set at $250,000, facing a trial date of July 12.

Franca had been scheduled to fight Drew Fickett for the vacant MFC lightweight championship at MFC 30 on June 10 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The promotion on Thursday, however, made the decision to release Franca from his contract, citing both the allegations against him and a breach of his agreement by fighting outside of the organization.

The worst part: Chael will most likely receive a harsher punishment than him.
