Now, if you haven't spoke to Eddie previously then let me tell you that once you have broken the ice and introduced a subject that he is passionate about, he is away - like a kid on Christmas morning fueled by Red Bull! Eddie is quick to talk not only about the things that he is interested in but the things you want to know. At the mere mention of Royler Gracie he opens up.
“I’m sick of him ducking me man! Every interview I do I’m going ‘I want Royler again, I want that fight’. I keep giving him an open invitation to another match but I hear nothing. It’s the only match I’m interested in doing. I will get back into a camp, cut to 145Ibs, do all the cardio and eat right to make sure I’m in the right shape for that fight. I've done all my competing now and it’s the last thing I want to do, hell I would even do MMA with Royler.”
I have a mini stroke. ‘Would you seriously get in the cage with him in full MMA rules?’
“Hell yeah, for me it would kill two birds with one stone. One bird is obviously the rematch with Royler while the other is proving that 10th Planet works within MMA. I want this rematch. I want to make it happen.”
