The fight game can change daily it seems and that's what happened over the past 24 hours. It looks as though Hermes Franca will be the man to face Yves Edwards at UFC 47, not Josh Thomson.

Thomson has an injury and won't be ready to go until June, so he couldn't fight Edwards in April. Hermes Franca was then offered to fight Yves and Franca said yes so look look for this great fight between two of the best at 155 at UFC 47.

Edwards said "Hermes is a great fighter and I had a feeling I would be fighting him soon. Now we get to fight in Las Vegas and I look forward to the challenge."

This 155 Lightweight division does not have a champion and it appears it could still be some time before one is crowned as there has been no talk about who will fight for the belt and when a new champion will be crowned.

Edwards will lose because he just ain't that good.
