Frankie Edgar Vs. Hermes Franca Possible At UFC 87

The following is from an article on NBCsports.com:

Hermes Franca, currently serving a suspension for a positive steroid test from a match last July, is expected to return to the UFC shortly, a source told NBCSports.com.

Franca, who tested positive for drostanolone following his July 7, 2007 lightweight title decision loss against Sean Sherk, is expected to take on Frankie Edgar at UFC 87. Franca is currently still unable to fight in any states that sanction MMA, but his one-year ban will end on July 5, making him eligible for the August 9 event in Minneapolis.

The fight is not officially signed but both parties have agreed to the bout, according to the source.
