Renzo Gracie's camp wants you to know that his MMA career isn't close over and that he wants to fight on the UFC card in Brazil on Aug. 27.

MMA Fighting recently spoke to Gracie's manager, Ali Abdel Aziz of Dominance MMA Management, about the 43-year-old's desire to fight on what will be the first UFC card in Gracie's home country since October 1998.

"It's Renzo's dream to fight in a UFC in Brazil," Abdel Aziz said, "but it's up to the UFC and Dana [White] to make it happen."

Extreme Lurker - So does Royce. Let them fight each other, so we only have to waste 1 fight on irrelevent fighters instead of 2.

 Or first ever UFC tag team match?

Yes, Renzo is still under contract with the UFC.

And for those who are making jokes, Renzo deserves more respect. He is a living legend and one of the very best human beings I`ve ever met.

The fight would most likely be at 170. (he`s currently walking around at 185-190)

I think it would be amazing to see a card with multiple Gracies fighting in Rio. (can you imagine the crowd?!)

It`s just too bad Roger is with Strikeforce...I`d love to see him on this card...the best BJJ fighter on the planet finally fighting in the UFC...in Rio would be amazing. It`ll happen one day.

I can appreciate that and no, he wouldnt get bothered by what`s written here, but there are many guys who train under him that might. All I`m saying is don`t dismiss him based on second half of his fight vs Hughes. There was alot of ring rust there. This is a guy who can fight.

I don't particularly care to see either fight. Yes they're both well respected, but so are a million other people. Does that mean they should fight on the card too? Come on.

Renzo was dismantled by Hughes.. lol

I've seen his many fights in Pride and thought he was great and always fun to watch, but he's had his time.

I don't know why there is so much disrespect towards Renzo.

Disrespect? I seen him talk a lot then he fought like a a old man with no gas tank and heart and he even asked Hughes to lift him back to his feet. He shouldnt get a fight on this card simple.

They should put at least one of these fights on the dark portion of the card. That way if it's worth watching, they can bump it into the PPV, but if not, they don't waste our time. Much respect to the Gracies, but the game has passed them by.

Might as well add Mario Sperry, Murillo Bustamante, and Marco Ruas while we're at it.

 when hughes ko'd him, renzo told everyone he didnt train at all for the fight. thats the sorta thing that dana hates, and boots people from the ufc for. perhaps he wasnt officially cut, but dana cant be too happy with him. however if hes ever coming back, brazil is certainly where he would sell the most ppvs/tickets.

I heard this as well, and was very disappointed in this. Renzo had always been my favorite Gracie..

However, I think I would rather see Renzo over Royce.
