Remember Saku avoided grappling with lesser Gracies, that must have been for a reason. Rickson didn't duck him he just wanted an insane amount of money. His reasoning was "I'm twice as good as Royce so they better pay twice as much" plus I do believe the death of his son(?) probably did affect his motivation to fight.
