"Royce" or "Hoyce?"

Hi, I'm new in here. I'm not a fighter but I saw UFC on tv for the first time about three weeks ago and have become completely fascinated by MMA. I've seen several programs and videos now about Royce Gracie and I can't figure out if my ears are deceiving me or not. Is his name pronounced "Hoyce" rather than "Royce?"

It is pronounced Hoyce. The Brazilians pronounce names that start with the letter R with an H sound.

Yet Helio is actually spelled with an H. Too bad. Relio would look cooler.
