The title says it all. Hermes Franca, a former UFC lightweight contender who once challenged for the belt (against then-reigning champ Sean Sherk at UFC 73), strayed from the path of decency in 2011 and ended up going to jail for messing around with someone underage. After his release earlier this year, the Brazilian was deported back to his native country, where he resumed fighting in the cage.
It hasn’t been going so well.
Keep in mind that Franca is a jiu-jitsu black belt, had fantastic hands, threw Caol Uno with a spectacular judo throw, and had his own team down in Florida.
And now it’s come to this…
I guess it’s safe to say that good MMA training while incarcerated is hard to come by.
It’s also safe to say that karma is a bitch.
