Hermes Franca 'Ready to Show My Full Potential'
By Dave Carpinello
UFC Lightweight contender Hermes Franca took some time to talk with PDG after his trip to New York about his comeback, future opponents and his upcoming fight with Gleison Tibau at UFC 90 in Chicago.

I sure hope so, if Franca wants to reclaim his spot as a top contender he's going to need to improve his skills. If he wants to hang with the newer LW's that have stormed onto the scene since his abscence, he's going to need to drasticaly improve his Takedown Defense. I'd also llike to see him sharpen his hands a bit as well. If he does this, I think he could climbe back up the lightweight ladder.

agree Franca was a beast before, but in that little time his division has just become a flood of skill and talent most of which is better than him.
