Cesar Gracie says he's working on Diaz-Gomi rematch

Cesar Gracie says Diaz-Gomi rematch will happen by 2009


On Matt Hughes...

"I don’t think he should necessarily retire. I don’t think he’s going to be a top 10 fighter much longer, if he is at all anymore really. Age does that to you, you know? You slow down and you’re just not that same guy that you used to be when you were 25 or 26 years old when you’re in your mid-30’s."

On Frank Shamrock...

"He couldn’t take Cung down. The problem with Frank is he’s not a wrestler and Cung is a wrestler. Cung trained at my gym a few years ago and he’s a real strong guy and everything. I think he won high school state or something like that. He has a wrestling background. He’s not easy to take down and Frank doesn’t have the credentials to take Cung Le down so he was kind of forced to stand with him. Cung Le is probably the more accomplished of the two, but I thought it was a great fight. Frank had his moments in the 3rd round. He stunned Cung a couple of times."

On the CBS EliteXC card...

"It wasn’t the best representation, but I think people are making a lot about nothing on that. Hey, props to them; they got on CBS. A lot of people wanted to watch it. I mean, 6 million people tuned in. People want to say Kimbo Slice wasn’t the best representation and so what. Did you see the last UFC? Was that a good representation of the sport? I think competition is healthy and it will bring the sport up. EliteXC is only getting better and better and that’s the way of the world. Who wants to see a monopoly? I love the UFC too, but I hope they’re not the only organization out there and they have this monopoly where you’re forced to take their contract because there’s nothing else out there."

On Nate Diaz...

"Watching Nathan in his last fight when I was out there in Colorado with him, seeing him coming out, the fans was just…I mean, they really love that kid. They know he has a good heart. He comes out and goes 100%. He leaves everything out there in the cage. He doesn’t leave anything behind. He tries it, he goes for it and he’s not a wussy guy. He takes his beating like a man and he keeps going. He doesn’t stop and then he beats the guy up. I’m 100% proud of that guy."

On Nick Diaz...

"If Nick is 100% on, he is the best in the world. If you put Nick somewhere and you say, ‘the winner is the fighter that comes out of this cage,’ guess who is coming out? Nick Diaz is coming out of that cage. I don’t care if it’s Georges St-Pierre or whatever. I know he can lose a fight and I know in X amount of rounds this guy can outpoint him, but I know that Nick is a true fighter. He’s a warrior wherever he goes."

On Diaz-Gomi rematch...

"I’m working on it and I think you guys might see the rematch in the future, hopefully by 2009; that’s what we’re working on."

Long interview...he talks more about Diaz-Gomi 2, BJ Penn, GSP, Anderson Silva and a bunch of other stuff:
