Renzo says move to 155 possible

by Damon Martin | source:

"It's so easy," Gracie told MMAWeekly Radio about making 155 pounds. "Right now I'm 178, and I have to eat a lot so I don't drop even more weight.

"I can walk around at probably 170, 173, you know? So it's easy to make 155."

"For sure, I can be the wildcard. I can go from 155 to the heavyweights."

"The beauty of our sport, we have to live one day at a time. Right now, I have a huge task, which is to face Matt Hughes. So I can't think about B.J. I can't think about Sakuraba. I have one ugly face in my head and that's Hughes, nobody else."

If you aren't excited about this matchup, you probably started watching MMA when TUF came on the air. Hell, I'm just excited to (finally) see Renzo in the UFC, never mind he is facing one of its legends.

 Seriously, is there any way in which Renzo is not awesome?  :-) I think Hughes will likely win in a stall-fest, but if Renzo wins, I will be running down the street yelling like a fool :-P

If Renzo beats Hughes decisively maybe you can justify a Renzo/BJ rematch, but I really don't see how Renzo can win that fight.

Renzo is an awesome fight for BJ at 155 if he looks good vs Hughes. But please don't tie up the belt at 155 for TUF.

Neither of whom are remotely relevant to the modern MMA scene.
