To be fair Hughes would barely break a sweat against Gracie. So he would easily be able to fight them both. Hell he could do it in the same night.

I think this is one of those things where what Royce is asking for makes sense based on how much him being on the card would draw. He's huge in Brazil, and if it makes mathmatical sense to pay him 1,000,000 -- I could certainly see Dana doing it. So, while I do think it's a hefty sum, both Royce and Dana I'm certain are aware that he's not asking that much because he believes himself to be worth that much as a fighter, but as a name in Brazil, Royce can definitely draw.

Wheter he can or can't draw, I don't want to see him on the octagon again neither no one of the many fighters I know here in Brazil. People that support MMA for passion here in Brazil may want Royce to have another chance, but the rational fighters realize he can't fight anymore, Gracies are proud (I am a black belt myself under Gracies), but I believe there is a change of perspective going on with BJJ fighters here in Brazil: they tend to abandon MMA and dedicate to BJJ or submission tournaments. Unforntunately, Royce wants the highlights and the $, but I REALLY don't want to see him fight, since I know he is probably not working out or training whatsoever.

He deserves 1 million, not because of the fighter he is today but because of what he and his family have made for the sport.

Edit: Not made for the sport, but for creating the sport.

If Dana dose pay him that it would have to be a gift for what he did in the past, no way he's worth that now but hay spread the love IMO.

We need to remind ourselves that the Gracies didn't start the UFC out of some kind of love and respect for MMA. They simply believed that BJJ can beat any other art and created the competition to prove it. That arrogant whiff still follows them around, hence Royces inflated impression of himself.

This is why, fundamentally, I cannot give the Gracies full respect for starting this thing. MMA was simply a side effect of their initial failed experiments. It was clear by around UFC6 that BJJ is not the super duper unbeatable art that they thought it was. No single art is. MMA was born from that realisation. Nothing to do with any forward planning by the Gracie family.

In my opinion, Randy Couture did more for MMA in his first few years then Royce did. At least, in my eyes anyway.
