Hermes Franca sleeps well at night

Right up until Sean Sherk was found guilty by the CSAC, there was a decent amount of sympathy for his plight from the MMA community. While people weren’t happy with the way the steroids fiasco was handled by the athletic commission or the UFC, many people I’m sure were waiting expectantly for Sherk’s chance to clear his name and provide the silver bullet that would prove he was innocent.

Of course, Sherk’s lawyer brought a shit cannon instead of a silver bullet gun, and just blew diarrhea all over everything. People were not impressed. And now with every interview Sherk does, people are less and less supportive.

On the other hand, take a look at Hermes Franca. He admitted he doped, didn’t get his time cut in half, and got verbally bitchslapped by the president of the UFC. All for telling the truth. But at least he can look at himself in the mirror, and he’s moving on with his life:

“I’m guilty, what can I say?” Franca laughed. “But if you can’t prove you didn’t do it than you should have to take a year off. At least I was a man about it and I can put my head on my pillow and sleep well at night,” Franca told “It’s already been seven months and I’ll be back fighting soon.”

I gotta say, that’s a pretty decent attitude. Franca took responsibility for his actions and his decisions. What he did was dumb, but the only thing people like less than a steroid user is a steroid user who fucking lies about it.

    FIGHTLINKER or anyone for that matter…………

    It is not that I am cheap and refuse to pay $50 to watch it on a tiny pc screen, when tomorrow I can see it for free on a tiny pc screen. I am stuck here tonight with no cable, NO WAY of purchasing 79, just access to this pc!!!!

    Is there any way to view 79 live on the internet WITHOUT purchasing it??? I know MANY MANY places that I will be able to see in full come tomorrow afternoon. I was just wondering if anyone will hook me up with some info on this????

    PLEASE hook a brother up!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, Franca got screwed. CSAC is very hypocritical, fight like a bitch, lie like a bitch and whine like a bitch… get six months off.

    Tell the truth, man-up and even have a good reason? Fuck you, whole year.

    i watch the english premiership for free here, and they should have it:

    bear in mind you’ll have to download some shit first, so don’t pop in 2 minutes before the main event expecting everything to be cool. also, occasionally with the football their shit will stutter to the point that you’ll just end up turning it off. but other times there is absolutely no problem. for $0, it’s worth a shot.
