Breaking NEWS Rickson gracie to fight on NYE 2007

Over a year ago here on The FightWorks Podcast, we spoke with Breno Sivak, who is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu from Gracie Humaita in Rio de Janeiro. Sivak has been a long time friend of Rickson Gracie, and in our conversation claimed that Rickson was preparing to fight another mixed martial arts fight in December 2006.

Sivak’s claim was dismissed as rumor by some, but this weekend at the Brazilian jiu-jitsu Mundials in Los Angeles, I spoke with Rickson Gracie personally and asked if there was any truth to Sivak’s statement. Rickson confirmed that he does indeed still intend to fight and is currently in negotiations with multiple MMA promotions to fight on December 31, 2007.

So while Breno’s statement was not entirely spot on, in essence he was indeed correct that Rickson Gracie is still looking for another chance to demonstrate the skills of the “Lion of the Gracie family”. Rickson will be travelling back to Brazil and has plans for Japan before the end of the year. We will let you know when we learn more.

Amazing find. REP.

Way too late Rickson. But really anybody other than Sakuraba now is just pointless. Even if Rickson is old and Saku is broken down.

I smell another Rickson Gracie vs old pro wrestler..

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
