Hermes França believes in student at UFN-17

Cut at the last minute from the UFC Fight Night 17 main event due to a knee injury, Hermes France commented exclusively for the website SUPER FIGHTS the injury that will keep him out of combat for a long period.

“I'm fine, but I'll have to operate. I've already scheduled the surgery for 15 days from now”, commented the black belt, who is already predicting the recovery time. “I should stay away for about 8 months, I may even come back sooner, but I only want to when I'm 100%”, said Hermes.

The Brazilian also analyzed his training partner, Jeremy Stephens, who will replace him at UFN-17 and face Joe lauzon.


“We were training together, he is in shape, but he only had two weeks to prepare. In any case, I not only think, but I'm sure he will win. If he does what we plan, it will be a knockout”, concluded Hermes.

UFC Fight Night 17 takes place on February 7, in Tampa, United States.
