Hermes Franca Arrested in Oregon on Sexual Abuse Charges

Veteran lightweight and former Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor Hermes Franca has been arrested in Oregon on alleged charges of sexual abuse. Franca, 36, previously resided in the state and operated Team Hermes Franca Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Clackamas, Ore. The fighter allegedly flew to Oregon on Monday from Florida, where he now resides, and turned himself in to Clackamas County Jail on seven counts of sexual abuse in the first degree and two counts of unlawful sexual penetration in the second degree. The news was first reported by Examiner.com on Thursday; Sherdog.com confirmed the news with the Clackamas County Jail and a source close to Franca shortly thereafter. According to a Clackamas County Jail official, Franca’s bail has been set at $250,000, and a trial is scheduled for July 12 at 9 a.m. in the Clackamas County Courthouse in Oregon City, Ore. A nine-year veteran of the sport, Franca’s career highlight came in 2007 when he challenged Sean Sherk for the UFC lightweight title. Franca has won three of his last four bouts and is currently scheduled to face Drew Fickett for the Maximum Fighting Championship lightweight strap on June 10.

Hermes Franca Talks About the Time He Fought for $1: "So this guy Manny Reyes was writing some trash around 2004 and if you remember the UFC was not doing the lightweight division anymore at that time. Euphoria was doing shows and for some reason they were going to have Manny Reyes fight. He was saying he was the UFC champion and I thought this guy is crazy. He was challenging me for some reason and one of the promoters said, "Ok Hermes you want to fight?" I say "I don’t want to fight this guy, he’s nobody." "The promoter said that the fans want someone to kill him. I had already accepted a fight with Phil Johns but I accepted the fight. Right before the fight he was saying that he wanted his own rules – one round of ten minutes and that it could only be KO or submission. He created his own rules and they were selling a lot of tickets so he wanted like $2-3,000. Because he was so expensive the promoter asked me if I would fight for one dollar. I said, "What the fuck?" The promoter said, "Come on, do it for me, you’re a good friend." "Ok, let’s fight for one dollar." "And the arena was crazy. Everyone was waiting for it like I was fighting Gomi or BJ Penn (laughs). It was packed! And then when we’re in the ring I can hear the promoter shouting to me, "Kill him! Kill him!" I said, "Bro you cant do that, you’re the matchmaker! (laughs)" HT: cagepotato
