The octagon may soon once again boast a Gracie.

Inactive since an April 2010 loss to Matt Hughes at UFC 112, Renzo Gracie (13-7-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is preparing for a second fight in the UFC.

"I'm getting ready to fight again," Gracie told  in his native Portuguese. "I have a six-fight contract with no predetermined time frame. I still have five fights to go, so I plan to jump back into it."

I really love what Renzo has done for the sport...but at his age and at today's style of fighting? Hopefully he will work his non-grappling cardio and maybe he can eat a steak or at least have a protein shake or something to be ready for his next fight.

I wish the UFC would do a "legends match" every couple of PPVs. A lot of people on the east coast won't mess with Renzo because tons of gyms are affiliated with him.

 Hardy trains with Roy, does he not? I dunno if that would be kosher were he to take a fight with the guy who gave Roy his BB.

 Kolor me Kookly, but I like this idea.  Sure Hardy has superior striking and crazy KO power...but would be interesting to see what happened if Renzo could get him to the floor.

Why not? It's not like they'd care about a guy who isn't under a long-time contract winning a legends fight. Win-win for the UFC, IMO.
