Let him fight Nate. I'm sure Marquardt wouldn't mind some revenge for that kick to the face.

Renzo's the man, he's a true fighter and unlike Royce/Rickosn never ducked any-one or picked any opponents.

I'd love to see him smash Hughes then go on to take the WW title... It's never gonna happen, but a man can dream can't he??
Brazilians are all related in some sort of way, and all 'bros' when they're named 'Gracie'.

I too would like to see Renzo make a run at WW but he'll be a gatekeeper at best imo.

You gotta admit that was kinda funny though. He went after Almeida after he lost, guess he learned to be gracious against Maia.

This a great fight for Hughes. He should be able to dominate thoroughly and bring back flashbacks to when he was champ.

He went after Almeida because he tapped and Almeida held the choke for quite some time afterward.

Maybe it wasn't the sporting thing to do, but if I was in that position I might do the same things.

Yeah, this fight is smart from a marketing perspective. You bring in another Gracie who's a more well-rounded fighter, build up the whole revenge angle. And then when Hughes beats Renzo down -- and looks good doing it -- he gets some hype back heading into future fights.

And hey, if Renzo surprises and looks good in there, then that only gives you more match-making possibilities.

There is no way in hell Hughes is stopping Renzo. No way.

Renzo is the man. I can see him losing a decision but I'll be cheering all the way.

I highly suggest to everybody on this forum to watch the Renzo Gracie documentary if you haven't alrdy. The guy is the most likeable and decent chap in MMA that I've seen. Maybe up there with Don Frye.
