Renzo Gracie will become the latest fighter to represent the storied Gracie name in the UFC when he meets former UFC welterweight champ Matt Hughes at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi.
Gracie (13-6-1 1NC) is a highly-regarded practitioner of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, continuing the tradition of a family that has produced some of the sport's greatest champions, and wielded tremendous influence over MMA as a whole.
