Lots of rumors lately about Royce Gracie possibly returning to the UFC in Brazil for a retirement fight, and he rightfully should. Gracie reinvented the UFC and how MMA is taugh and fought, and to have him fight on home soil in front of so many jiu-jitsu and brazilian fans, that would be amazing.

I would love for Royce to get a rematch with Hughes, I think this is a perfect fight because Hughes is thinking of retirement as well and having come off a loss he'll be into it. As well Royce having been beaten by Hughes b4 and fighting in Brazil he'd be pumped, so in my eyes this fight makes sense.

Who do you think would make a good opponent for Royce in brazil?

I said Sakaraba. The fans in Brazil would love it, I would love it and I'm willing to bet the fight would actually be competitive and interesting to watch. I just don't want to see Royce get pounded out by some younger, stronger, faster guy.

Agreed, Saku would be a good fight for him if the UFC decides to sign him, and that why I picked Hughes because hes getting on the back 9 of his career.

I don't care much for Hughes/Gracie 2. Just can't see the rematch ending any differently then the first.

Not sure how many good years Gracie has left in him, so if he does decide to fight again, I want to take it for all it's worth and match him with a submission fighter. I'd like to see Gracie's submission game one last time. If I had the opportunity to choose his opponent, I'd say Demian Maia.
