Royce Gracie did well early on with his jits but the game has evolved ALOT and I'm not sure if he has kept up with it or stayed stuck in what he does. His fight with Hughes could suggest he didn't evolve or he just isn't good enough with the talent now on offer.
Royce could be emabarrassed and if he isn't matched right he'll be embarrassed worse then Renzo was.
Royce Gracie is a freak show fight but its a special occassion so I'd give them a pass although understand if people are less forgiving.
No idea what you're talking about with Lesnar and Coleman. Lesnar had been training MMA for two years before his UFC debut and was matched up hard from his first match. Coleman was an elder statesman of the sport that likewise was put up against real opponents. A far cry from Strikeforce finding warm bodies to feed to Walker.
