Renzo Gracie plans his MMA return in 2010   Thursday 17th of September 2009 12:03 PM

n 15 years of career on Vale-Tudo, Renzo Gracie already faced some of the toughest guys in one of the biggest events around the world. Despite of not being fighting since February 2007, when the Gracie defeated Ken Shamrock on EliteXC, Renzo never hide his desire to keep fighting, and he plans his return to rings.

“At the beginning of next year, we’ll me playing again”, said, always in a good mood, the tough fighter, in the break between one fight and another on Bitetti Combat, event where he was a referee, along with Big John McCarty. “It’s was an excellent organization, I’m impressed, this event will definitely move forward and bring this sport back to Rio de Janeiro”, said Renzo. “It’s awesome, that’s what was missing to push MMA now on... What they did was really made with love, that can be seeing for the quality of the event”.

I'm pretty sure it was Mark that fought Rickson - that old PPV that took place on a battleship - Matt cornered Mark.

Renzo is one of the funniest people you will ever meet, this guy always has a story. Plus he is a very technical instructor as well. That would awesome to see him fight in Brazil again.
