I think Royce was more impressive than Shamrock because (1) he beat Shamrock and was the first little man to tap out all these bigger men (2) the second fight was a draw ... there were no judges at the time, maybe if there were Royce would have fought a different fight (3) besides 1 and 2, Royce pulled this off being a good 20 to 30 pounds lighter than Shamrock

i think its best left alone, who would he fight?? some one thats no good, what would that prove?? and what if he lost to that guy. the sport has moved on. there is no shame in that. he shouldnt have fought matt. royce changed fighting all over the world, and was the reason that mma was created. you couldnt be a martial artist anymore, you had to be a mixed martial artist. matt hughes happens to be one of the most well rounded fighters the sport has right now. then look at the other guys right underneath him, gsp, penn..royce cant beat these guys in mma. thats just the way it is

I would like to see him try. just to see if he is able to adapt. But I think we have seen the last of him.
