Royce wouldn't fight a family member, but let's assume he would. Royce's entire game is bjj. Royce is not blessed with tons of athletic talent. He is flexible and durable. There is little chance of him outspeeding someone, or loading up for the ko.

Royce cannot beat a fighter with better Jiu-Jitsu, and Renzo is superior here.

In an exhibition match or even a real fight that is a one off it would be good but if they resign him then that would be silly. If you are not in the top 20 in the world, you really shouldn't be in the UFC unless you are serving as cannon fodder or just to make up the roster.

Royce, Renzo, Coleman, these sort of signings hurt their credibility and even more so when they look bad and subsequently get cut.
