The following was posted by Hermes Franca on the www.mma.tv message board:
After my fight i was suspended for a year,i could not fight in USA,so i got some calls to fight in canada ,england,japan etc…,so i ask Mr.Joe silva to finish my contract with UFC, i told him i need to fight to make money ,told him to please let me fight and finish my contract( i was out of focus)and his gently did it..So , i spoke with Mr.Armando Garcia, and he told me , if i do some fights out of USA i could not fight in USA anymore never,So i decide don't fight and wait until july,So now i don't have any contract, but of course i will try come back to the UFC( just if u guys wish hermes franca back again lol), or wait for another offer from another organization. That's it.
But i am doing good guys, really busy ,doing seminars in all over the world ,i am in canada now, and next week arizona, winsconsin, north carolina ,south carolina ,i am training with differents fighters and camps(marcelo garcia,pablo popovitch,B.J. penn ,marck bochek,etc…)
