good match up for Hughes past his prime he should just take it easy and renzo shouldn't be to much trouble for him.

beating two gracies would be a pretty cool thing to do.

Renzo has a huge record of bare knuckle fighting in Brazillian MMA where exact stats and numbers aren't known, but let's just say, he's had with some of the naughtiest people about.

If anybody is thinking this is gonna be as easy the Royce fight has got another thing coming!

I'm sticking nitros to the back of this bandwagon boys.

Get on board!

yha but he is 42 now and he has lost 6 of his last ten fights. Now its not going to be an easy one for matt but compared to some others he has a choice of fighting its a good match up.

Hughes has confirmed the fight with Renzo will happen at UFC 112:

Quote:
"I didn't know if I could say anything about my next fight, but I see that Dana has let the cat out of the bag. So I can tell you what I know, on April 10 I will be fighting Renzo Gracie in Abu Dhabi. I haven't signed any paperwork and I don't think Renzo has either; but I think this fight is going to happen. That's all I know, serious training will start for me at the new year." - Matt Hughes

Former 9-time UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes confirms an upcoming showdown with fellow MMA legend Renzo Gracie. The fight is tentatively scheduled to take place in Abu Dhabi at UFC 112 on April 10.

Hughes (43-7) is coming off of a win against bitter rival Matt Serra at UFC 98 back in March. The win capped a sub-par five-fight stretch in which the former long-time champion went a disappointing 2-3; losing twice to current welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and dropping a tough loss to top contender Thiago Alves over that span.

Gracie (13-6-1) hasn't fought since earning a disqualification victory over Frank Shamrock back in February of 2007. The 42-year-old MMA pioneer holds other notable victories over Oleg Taktarov, Maurice Smith, Pat Miletich and Carlos Newton. He is the son of Robson Gracie, grandson of Carlos Gracie, nephew of Carlos Gracie, Jr. and grand-nephew of legendary Brazilian jiu-jitsu creator Helio Gracie.
