It's probably not happening. Dana White confirmed that Royce Gracie will not be fighting in Rio in August.

Who would want to watch this? Royce Gracie was more boring than John Ruiz. And that is saying something.

Agreed.

I think they should have him fight Uriah Faber. Faber would stop him in 1

Howard made Royce quit way before Sakuraba did and it took him 90 minutes less to do so, he knew that Harold was bringing the karate aspect back to jiu jitsu and threw in the towel, shamefully ducking Howard.

A rematch needs to happen and this time (if he doesn't throw in the towel first) Royce is going to get DDT'd into the ground then finished off with a brutal front flip scissor kick.

Hell yeah. Double H is one of the most ducked fighters in all combat sports. He even let Jennum win. If it hadnt had been for Big John HH would have won as Jennum was obviously tapping out on HH's face. Glad the rules have changed since then, absolute robbery. Nobody could understand the karate aspect of ju jitsu. As the great man said ''I told you, if it worked it worked. And it didnt I didnt. So in the end it didnt'' Never a wiser words have been spoken in MMA

He knew how good Gracie ju jitsu was on the ground. But Royce is lucky he didnt have to face the Flying Wheel Kick of doom.

Get Saku back. It's not like Royce is going to seriously injure him. If anything, Saku probably still has enough, has fought more regularly (he's shot, but also less rusty than Royce) and would make for a classic 'legendary match up'.

Co-sign. Gracie doesn't want any part of this.
