As a member of the First Family of Mixed Martial Arts, UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie has witnessed firsthand the rise of the sport from obscurity to network TV. And while he hasn’t competed for more than six years, the MMA pioneer said the sport – which has long struggled for recognition – is now unquestionably mainstream.

He never said that in the article. They are very much making assumptions. Very poor journalism.

True, what he said could be interpreted that way, but it's not the journalist's job to interpret quotes.

He should have just relayed the quote and let the reader form their own conclusion.

What Gracie did say was.


“No gloves, no time limit, no weight division – that would be very interesting,”

I think they should go back to the rules that existed from UFC 18-20.
