Renzo Gracie talks about his fight against Hall of Famer Matt Hughes

This is a long waiting fight for Renzo after Matt Hughes put the Gracie family to shame from his already easy wins he pulled on there Family. And we all know if there is a family in MMA thats the closest its these guys!

Sounds like a good dude, I like the way he carries himself and represents the Gracie family. And Ariel is p4p best.

However, I hope he doesn't have to fight BJ at 170 under that 6 fight contract or he is going to get TOOLED.

Edit: Oh, and I hope he subs Hughes.

Hehe i don't think he will get through Hughes if he has the same approach as he did with Frank Shamrock where he got destroyed and only won because Shamrock started to knee him on the dome. Which was his last fight

I dont see him out striking Hughes and like how Hughes proves over and over he is to strong and good of a wrestler for the Gracies. But ill be cheering for Renzo to pull it off

Hughes was the best, Renzo was never anything or will be anything, he may win the fight but its another meaningless fight, it will be billed as for family honor, who cares, next he can fight them all at once. Or they can just jump him in the parking lot. At least Matt will get to be introduced one more time and get a huge paycheck for doing what he does best - pound the f out of a gracie. Maybe this will be fun to watch.

I'm at work so I can't watch the video right now, but I can honestly say I'm pretty excited about his fight. As its been said by a many people, I can't see either of these guys having an impact anymore on the WW division. Even stil, this should be fun.

I think it will be a close fight, but we will see.

Hughes takes this easily. The only guy he's lost to in years who was in the same weight class was GSP.


Hughes wins by TKO or decision and gets the nickname "Gracie Killer."

Yeah I like Renzo out of all the Gracies, i have all there Pride Bushido Videos of Team Gracie vs Team Japan, Renzo being the top of the dogs.

I see Matt Hughes being easily able to take him down into his Guard, and yeah he is obviously good on his back being a top Gracie.

But not even the Daddy of the Gracies could handle the strength and GnP of Matt Hughes, I say easy win, but i hope Renzo Adapts as he claims and puts on a good show, Ill be rooting for the underdog but im a big Matt Hughes fan as well

Craziest thing is the 100 Brazilians hired to teach BJJ in school in Abu Dhabi (UAE?). Kinda blew my mind.

Renzo sure got destroyed in that Frank fight. I mean, damn, him taking Frank down at will and beating him on the ground really made him look bad.

Hughes vs Renzo should be fun, but Renzo loses.

What is with the Renzo hate in this thread? Next to Royler, Renzo was the only Gracie with balls.
