The following is an article from The Fightworks Podcast:

Breaking News: Rickson Gracie Confirms He Plans to Fight on New Years Eve

Over a year ago here on The FightWorks Podcast, we spoke with Breno Sivak, who is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu from Gracie Humaita in Rio de Janeiro. Sivak has been a long time friend of Rickson Gracie, and in our conversation claimed that Rickson was preparing to fight another mixed martial arts fight in December 2006.

Sivak’s claim was dismissed as rumor by some, but this weekend at the Brazilian jiu-jitsu Mundials in Los Angeles, I spoke with Rickson Gracie personally and asked if there was any truth to Sivak’s statement. Rickson confirmed that he does indeed still intend to fight and is currently in negotiations with multiple MMA promotions to fight on December 31, 2007.

A student of Rickson Gracie's, Kevin Casey, has been booked for the K-1 HERO's show on 9/17, for whatever that's worth.

How good is Rickson? Anyone ever seen him fight? How is his standup? Could he be a force in the UFC Middleweight division?

he's very good (his stand up sucks though)...one of the best bjj artist ever , but also happens to be (imo) one of the most overrated fighter in mma history.

Rickson rumered to fight....what else is new? He won't come back, and if he did he won't be a contender.
