Former WEC lightweight champion Hermes França signed a deal with the Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC) event. The former UFC fighter will join the team’s lightweight roster.
The black belt, who rediscovered victory after a string of four losses and a no contest, with his armbar win over Jorge Sarat at G-Force Fights, will face another former UFC fighter, Drew Fickett. The bout is set for April 8 in Windsor, Ontario.
Besides Hermes and Fickett, Marvin Eastman, David Heath, Marcus Davis and Martin Terry join the former-UFC-fighter lineup.
