Royce Gracie
 
You guys think that was the last we will see from him in the UFC (even though he quote "i still got a few more in me")?

Although he was amazing at his time, do you guys think he could take out most of the welterweight and middleweight contenders?

I would like to see him some more. I think that he took to much time out of the ring however, I do not think he could beat most of the serious contenders out there. He is pretty old and he has got some improving. If he took some easier fights focusing on ground and pound defence he would have a chance but it would defanitly be a race before he would have to retire.

He has the skills but will he choose to get them back into shape is the question.

I donno, i dont think he could really win unless he was fighting a BJJ fighter, which would be a very very boring fight.


Ed Herman vs Royce Gracie lol i wanna see that fight.

I think Matt Hughes really proved how much the sport has changed and how far behind Royce has fallen ... don't want to go to crazy about one fight but he was dominated from start to finish and I wonder if he could even beat a guy like Frank Trigg

if matt hughes can beat Royce, Frankie twinkle toes is gunna put a beatdown on Royce also. I agree i think the sport has evolved beyond the Gracies, whilst they were the founders and all...u gotta know when its time to pack it up and sit on the bench, so to speak.

My only concern for Royce is he could do a Ken Shamrock and take a bit of gleam of his name thats all. I somehow doubt we will see him again...

I donno frank triggs so ugly on the ground its not even funny, the might as well put a ribbon on his back because its a freakin xmas gift to the guys he fights.

Then again if you look how much Royce made in that fight hell id come back and get my ass kicked for that amount of money as well.

i think he made like 600k even though he lost.
