Royce Gracie has confirmed that he is looking for at least one million dollars to appear at UFC 134.

Gracie, who won three of the first four UFC tournaments and is one of the fathers of MMA, appeared on Brazilian show Sensei SporTV this week to renew his calls for a spot on the UFC Rio card.

“Dana White knows what I’m worth; he knows what I bring to the table. Yes, my fight purse has seven digits!” he confirmed with a laugh.

 The article cited is from a month ago and it's common knowledge that Royce and especially Rickson have always had seven figure (sometimes said to be high seven figures) quotes based on their fame and legendary status in MMA/BJJ

He should absolutely get it.

I'm still hoping they can work a rematch with Hughes out for him, as well.

i dont think he really wants to fight, so he makes a ludacris demand to make it seem like he does, but he knows dana wont give him that kind of dough.
the ufc doesnt need royce to fill the seats for the first brazil show in forever.

 Nope. Nor would I lower my quote if I was Royce or Rickson. It's simply a situation where the Gracies don't need the UFC and the UFC don't need the Gracies

You really must not like Royce that much. Sure he'd get paid, but to get totally wrecked again. If he fights it needs to be someone like Dustin Hazlett.

Brock Lesnar's purse is 500k, thats all you need to know. Lesnar at this point, without a doubt, is the biggest PPV draw the UFC has.

Typical of the Gracie family to ask for outrageous purses and demand their spot on a card with a hand picked opponent. I thought the purse that Royler asked for to face Eddie was outrageous but this one takes the cake.

Dana White does know what Royce brings to the table, that's exactly why hes not on the Rio card.

 I thought he wanted to fight one last time to finish his career? Turns out, he just wants a cool million and doesn't give a fuck about the fight.

So let me get this straight; he petitions to get on the card, then demands a higher purse than any other fighter, and this is after getting destroyed in his last UFC showing....hmmmm, think hes just making noise at this point, theres no chance lol

Guest commentator maybe...

I have no desire to see him fight again. He deserves respect and was a great fighter for his day. However, those days are long gone and he does not bring enough to the table to get that kind of a big pay day.

 Pat Miletich said Royce made around 1.5 for the Hughes fight and Hughes checked in a bit over a million.

 Not only is that hilariously wrong, but Royce made more than a million to fight Matt Hughes over five years ago
