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."

I know I'm going to hell for even suggesting this but I want to see Royce vs. Sakuraba 3.

I've been harping that, "Sakuraba should retire" for awhile now but at least against Royce he'd be fighting a grappler with limited stand up who is actually older than him. At least seeing two veterans try to settle the score (even if it is a sad reminder of what they used to be) is better than watching Royce get destroyed against a new era fighter, which would be even sadder.

 Royce in a 50/50 chance of winning fight would be awesome.

Putting him in there with a top 15-20 doesn't make much sense.

Ghan - Royce Gracie vs James Toney, make it happen Dana! Can they still get a HW vs a WW sanctioned though?


It is in Brazil- do that have athletic control boards like the US?

 He will get destroyed by anyone other than a "classic old-timer" match like Sak or Ken Sham

Royce has not been a WW for quite some time.
