Even when you're away from fighting, you're never really away. Such seems to be the recent case with Royce Gracie: He doesn't need any of the typical motivators for fighting, he seems comfortable being out of the MMA spotlight, but he doesn't seem to have the urge to fight. But if UFC 100 and the Fan Expo was any indication, fans still want to see the original UFC legend back in action at 42. Not now, he says, but of course never say never.

Id like to see him fight again, but not against any new school guys.

Id like to see Royce vs someone like Funaki or maybe Minowaman even..

I agree 100%.
I think their are still fights for Royce that are signficant to Royce,but I would say none of them are in the UFC.
I would love to see him fight the likes of Funaki,or even a guy like Aoki.

I would personally like to see Royce call it quits. Unless he fought for his honour.

Royce Gracie v Marc Laimon anyone?

He stole my WORDS!!!! lol. I agree,all my friends think I hate Gracies,but I have a great deal of respect for their dedication and what they had achieved. But all I recall when hear "gracie" is how i wore out my fast forward button out, watching first UFCs on vhs (remember those days lol). But id be looking at tv and there be this guy monkey clinging most the time not even advancing, on people who had NO CLUE what submissions where for most part. Only to be declared victor. Its a new day though thank god, and that ish dont fly just ask Matt Hughes. Took him less than 5 minutes to dismantle that legacy.

Royce Gracie and Wallid Ismael should fight each other now.

I have no interest in old school vs. old school fights. If Royce comes back, I want to see him fight a B level fighter. I want to see if he works on becoming a more rounded fighter (likely a no, but...) and how his BJJ works against these new era MMA guys. I'd like to see him fight someone like a Chris Leben perhaps. I know he wouldn't go for a fight like that, but I am curious to see how he would hang with a b level fighter

I want to see him fight Ken one more time.Do it at 205,Royce would only have to weight 186.
