Renzo Gracie is a legend in mixed martial arts. His last professional fight was at UFC 112 and was a TKO loss to Matt Hughes. At 46 years, Gracie is far past his fighting prime, but isn't quite ready to end his career. Meeting with Dana White last week in Vegas, Gracie showed the fighting spirit that has endeared him to fight fans:

"He was a gentleman," Gracie told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s The MMA Hour. "He made me an offer I almost couldn’t refuse. He offered me a check to not fight and I almost couldn't refuse. ‘Renzo, I like you so much I would hate if you get hurt.’ Getting hurt is part of our business, you know?

"His offer was almost as good as mine," he continued. "Mine, he couldn’t refuse. His, I could refuse. I said, ‘Please, don’t do that to me. Let me get there one more time,’ and he laughed. He told me, ‘Tell me when (you want to fight).’"

Gracie wants to compete so bad that he even offered to get inside the cage for no money.

"I offered to fight for free, and he laughed," Gracie said. "‘I could never have you fight for free. Not you,’ (White responded). It's not money I need, and he said, ‘I know.’ I want to do something without the need to do that. I think that way a man fights better."

Dana is that guy. Seriously, that's how you should treat people. People in power granting wishes like that are rare. 

It's not like Renzo is punch-drunk, one more shot is just the thing to do.

Renzo vs Gomi in Japan!

Gomi is not some spring chicken stomping through the ratings.

Perfect fight for both IMO!

Renzo =Royce, that will solve their dispute.

Betteryet, Renzo- Melendez or someone that will really show him that he should have taken Danas $ and run. Other wise, I rather just watch Rampage-Tito, same thing.

How about

Renzo Gracie vs Jorge "Macaco" Patino

2 old school Brazilian Vale tudo legends. Renzo is 46, Jorge is 40. Jorge is on an 8 fight unbeaten streak ( 7 wins, 1 draw) and has wins over Pete Spratt, Mike Bronzoulis and a KO of Jacare.

Love to see Renzo get his retirement fight against another legend who deserves at least one more fight in the UFC before he hangs them up. Phone Post 3.0

Also, Renzo has stated many times he'd like to fight at 155 and Jorge has dropped to 155 for his last couple fights (including a win over TUF winner Efrain Escudero as well) Phone Post 3.0
