When Renzo Gracie announced that he wanted to fight again, the overwhelming response in the industry was "why?" Gracie, 46, runs the most successful martial arts school in America, has trained two current UFC champions, and is widely revered in the sport.

However, Renzo appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and offered a definitive answer as to why he wants to fight.

"For having nothing to prove nor nothing to gain," he said. "To fight for what it is without reason, without greed, just for the passion to step once again in the arena and be an inspiration for a future generation of great fighters. To prove that age is only a handicap for the soft ones. And above all, because I love it."

Appearing on Fox Sports Live, UFC president Dana White was amenable to discussing it.

"He's got my phone number," said White. "If Renzo wants to fight, Renzo can call me."

If Renzo does fight in the UFC, who would like to see him matched up with? How about Joe Lauzon?

I really think bringing back Sherk for a superfight would be a great idea. He's 40, so hopefully he wouldn't crush 46 year old Renzo like some active fighters might. AFAIK he didn't make a lot of money, in spite of being a UFC champ, so it would be good to see him hit a solid payday.

Renzo needs to be fighting another old school legend type guy. There is no need for him to be in there with guys in their mid 20's. Nobody wants to see him possibly get hurt at this stage.

TTT for UFC to find Renzo a fight that makes sense.

GreatCornholio - Gomi, Sakuraba, Uno, Sakurai or Sato. Do it in Japan. Phone Post 3.0
Yep. Gotta be against an aging Japanese legend. Nothing else really makes sense. No one wants to see Renzo being used as a stepping stone by a young up and comer. Sakuraba, gomi, sakurai. Maybe frank shamrock. Phone Post 3.0

He sure doesn't fight a lot for someone that claims to love it as much as Renzo. Master Salesman!
