Hermes Franca wants a shot at B.J. Penn

In a new interview with, free agent fighter Hermes Franca not only expressed an interest in a rematch with former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk, but also a fight against the current UFC lightweight champion, B.J. Penn:

PDG: Your fight with Sean was a close decision; would you like a rematch?

Hermes: I don’t want to challenge anyone but of course I would fight him again. In my opinion, that fight should have been ruled a no contest. So like I said, I’m not challenging anyone but I would definitely welcome a rematch.

PDG: Okay, so not challenging anyone…….who out there would you like to fight because you think that it would be a great fight for the fans?

Hermes: When I come back, I want to fight the best and right now BJ Penn is the best. We are great friends and good partners but right now he is number one and he has the belt. So if I had a the chance to fight him, I would take the fight. No offense to BJ, like I said he is a really good friend but he has the belt.
