Royce Gracie was one of Dana White’s guests at the event promoting the UFC’s arrival in Brazil come August 27, in Rio de Janeiro.

It didn’t take long for the promotion’s first champion to field the question, “Will you be fighting at UFC Rio?”

With a smile, the veteran replied:

"I'm still thinking (on fighting in Rio). But I'm always training. This return of UFC to Brazil touched me, made me feel the wish of coming back to the Octagon. Everything has being negotiated with Dana White. Let's wait and see."

Don't underestimate what Dana will do when money is involved.I think my order of interest:TysonToneyKimboK. ShamrockKimo (just curious how this would go now that Kimo is a BB)I really wonder if Dana/Zuffa would do any of the first three since they would be such a freak show and I know they're anti-freak show.

Royce vs. Ken would be fun, but Dana would never do it.

Ruas must weight 250lbs right now, Royce is a small MW, even if they set up a catchweight at 200lbs it would be a lot of weight for one to lose and for the other to gain.
