The following are some quotes from Royce Gracie regarding the failed drug-test from the K-1/EXC "Dynamite!! USA" show. Information comes courtesy of Sherdog.com.

"I have never in my 14-year fighting carrier [sic] taken anything other then natural supplements and natural proteins," said Gracie, who was paid $300,000 to fight. "As such, I am shocked that anything was found in my system."

Royce would go on in the article to say:

"I am looking into this issue right now and will file an appeal with the CSAC," Gracie's e-mail continued. "I have been training [for] this fight since October of 2006, as initially the show was supposed to be on March 15th. Over the course of training I have taken legal supplements that are available in GNC to anyone that wants to get them. Outside of that I have never taken anything nor ever would consider taking anything."

And finally, Royce says:

"My good name is all I have and I do not want my fans to think that I would ever be [involved] with anything like this."
