NO NO NO NO on a Royce vs Sakuraba...... we saw that last in 2007 on the K-1 Dynamite!! USA show (same show as Brocks first MMA fight) was 3 boring rounds where Royce took the decision and neither guy looked good.... Royce ended up testing positive for PED's afterwards too. But yeah ive read that Royce wants this fight in Rio, and then that will be his retirement fight. As for who i think he should fight? hmmm is Pele still fighting in Brazil? Old Timer vs Old Timer, would be a huge draw in Brazil, and if they could show any of the old Vale Tudo footage could give newcommers some insight into the old dark ages. just a thought, but thats if Pele is still fighting and in any kind of shape.... Otherwise id say some up'n'comming BJJ guy, let him either see how well hed do against the old dog or see if theres still some fight left in Royce. But no i dont wanna see Saku.... their last fight was pretty bad and Saku hasnt really looked that great his last few fights..... sorry.

Heath Herring and Chuck are still on the site. Before they changed the graphics on the site I remember Art "one glove" Jimmerson being on the site. I remember Shamrock, Severn on the roster like just a year or 2 ago.

I'm pretty sure it means nothing. Although I have heard the rumors of Rio and Royce. But mark me down for one that doesn't care to see him fight. This is a growing sport legitimizing itself. There is no need to bring a guy back that can beat no one in the division just for sentamental value. That is the kind of stuff the WWE does with old timers.

Sure, have him be at the event, maybe even the face of the event. But to have him compete? Most likely on the main card? That is just ridiculous. He had his swan song 5 years ago vs. Hughes and that was terrible. Why do it again 5 years later? Fans would eat it up. But, do people want to see Randy or Chuck come back in 5 years for a swan song fight? No. People got sick of Ken Shamrock's fights for the last decade. Enough is enough...

If he was say a couple years removed from fighting, then yea maybe. But his real career eneded over a decade ago. He has had his few terrible retirement fights already. This really would be embarrassing and I don't see a need for this. Royce represents BJJ and a founding father of the sport. Doesn't mean he has to compete.
