    The Most talked about fight on the Internet Ever.....

    If you were a MMA fan and had access on the internet you know the hype behind this one, but for those of you who haven't, here is the story. Manny Reyes Jr felt he could build his reputation as an MMA fighter as a trash talker, however many felt his antics were way over the line. Hermes Franca was one such person who felt so compelled to take out and when the promoters offered him the chance to silence Manny, he readily accepted, only accepting the minimum salary of $1.

    Thanks to the generosity of the AFC promoters and Hermes, we are now able to offer you the Manny Reyes- Hermes Franca fight in it's entirety.

    Manny Reyes was paid a reported $4000 for the match and Hermes was paid $1. If you would like to increase Herme's purse, our friends at BJJNews have set up a PayPal Account as a way of thanking Hermes Franca for silencing Manny Reyes.

    AFC matchmaker Miguel Iturrate states 'This show is going down fast and furious! Results are coming in now. It is a sold out house, for the first time in AFC history and the matches are living up to all expectations. Several were cancelled due to some communications problems and paperwork, and I apologizxe to all those fighters, but the fighters that are there are putting on an incredible show.'
