Report -- Matt Hughes-Renzo Gracie possible for UFC 109

Matt Hughes vs. Renzo Gracie possible for UFC 109

ATO has learned through a source close to the HIT squad that Matt Hughes has been approached to face Renzo Gracie in February at UFC 109.

Renzo Gracie last competed in February 2007 when he defeated Frank Shamrock via disqualification. Gracie has won his last three fights since falling to BJ Penn in 2005. The layoff in between fights could be a problem for Gracie.

Hughes has been lying low since his big win over rival Matt Serra at UFC 98. He had signed a new seven fight deal back in September but he has yet to return to the octagon despite being called out by Josh Koscheck and other rising welterweights. Hughes is 2-3 in his last five fights and a matchup against an older fighter like Renzo could be very favorable.

This could be a pretty entertaining fight as long as neither of them want to try and keep it standing.

I love it, seriously, i think this is awesome. Im a Hughes fan, have been for a long time. He had said something about wanting to take fights that would help his legacy not that long ago, beating multiple Gracies would add to that legacy. Renzo is not incredibly talented, but his name still holds value. I seriously hope this happens.

Renzo isn't Royces bro, I think he's his nephew or cousin or some shit.

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??

Koscheck and the other AKA guys allready said they were only joking round and have no interest in fighting Hughes. It was basicly to get under Hughes skin. I Doubt those fights will be happening anytime soon TBH.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben
