A former WEC champion and UFC lightweight title challenger, Hermes França is one of the headliners for the upcoming International Fighting Championship (IFC) event in Recife, Brazil. Before heading home, though, the black belt put on a show at MFC29 last Friday in Ontario, Canada.

The Brazilian put on a crisp display of boxing in his fight, with a right bomb sending the American to the ground. He then followed up with ground and pound for good measure, winning his second fight in a row. The result adds further excitement to the April 29 event where big names from the MMA world like Gregor Gracie, Paulo Filho, and Ronys Torres will be doing battle.
