Royce Gracie back in the UFC as a MW?

http://uk.ufc.com/fighter/Royce-Gracie

Apologies if this has already been posted, but Royce Gracie can be found on the UFC website under the middleweight roster, did anyone hear about him signing with the UFC?

Isn't Ken Shamrock still there as well?

It means nothing.

Probably a one time thing for the Rio card.

Really? I mean unless the give him cans I see him going 3 and out rather quickly. I mean matt Hughes was too strong for him as a welter weight. I can't imagine what guys like Nate and chael will do to him.

Yeah, I randomly went to Royce's wiki page some time ago and also noticed something mentioned about it.

I'd love to fight Royce.

That being said I'd rather not see him in the ufc anymore, I think I'd have a good chance to beat Royce after a good camp.

Whom can he possibly beat at 185? UFC needs to bring someone "from the distant past" for Gracie to fight, otherwise it's definitely going to be a brutal loss. UFC wouldn't want to see Royce getting murdered in his native country.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Yeah no kidding. I've got some friends from Rochester BJJ scene who have rolled with him and with a gi on (and no strikes obviously) Royce is a monster. Take the gi away and add in strikes and he's just a fish out of water nowadays.
