I spoke to Renzo Gracie yesterday at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York, and contrary to earlier rumors, he won't be fighting Matt Hughes in his Octagon debut. The match up though has indeed been talked about and will most likely happen, but it was actually negotiated for his second UFC fight, and not the first.

No word yet on when or who he will debut against, but for the most part it seems like the UFC management wants him to shake off the rust and to re-introduce him to the fans first before taking on Matt Hughes.

Renzo is 42. He can't have too many fights left in him.

Don't believe this. From everyhting I'm hearing, his first fight will indeed be with Hughes.

He's an amazing "storyteller!"

 I'd love to see him coach TUF!

Ah, my bad. Just remember noticing it earlier but didn't follow the link.

Hughes is the best fight for him by far.

Mmanizzle - Renzo vs Sakuraba!!!


This would be great. Also a Renzo vs Tamura rematch but both would require co-promotion with Japan or at least another fighter trade deal which I don't expect from UFC at this point. Also the US fans aren't familiar enough with Saku or Tamura but for the hardcore fans those would be two great fights to get.
