Remember, when he was in ufc 1, there were no weight divisions. I don't think this fight will stay up. Royce is a master at shooting, and once it's on the ground Matt's got his hands full. Matt's no slacker either, but Gracie has been fighting in Japan since his departure of the ufc. It's not like he's not in condition. I think this fight will end in the 2nd round when Hughes taps out from the master of submissions.
It really remains to be seen. Not too many of us have seen Royce at all for a few years. Who knows, anything can happen, and lets face it, Matt will have it in his head that Royce is the best. That can mess with you too, and cause you to do things that you normally wouldn't. I don't know, I'm not putting any money on this, it could go either way.

I'm unsure of who Royce was fighting, but he didn't actually lose. In terms of getting his ass beat that is. He broke his ankle and his corner threw in the towel. He didn't want to quit himself naturally.

Man, I can't see it going any other way but a Hughes victory. As for tapping out Gracie, I'm not sure, but Matt is extremely brutal with those supplexes, and I can see Royce getting the brunt of one of those at least once.

Intriguing fight, I think perhaps Gracie will be quite simply and avoid some sick moves. But yeah - I'm picking Hughes.

Holy crap I'd mark out if Royce won though
