Why would you pay 7 figures to a fighter who will totally get out classed unless he faces a can, he is past his time.

Its so ironic too because his the reason people started brushing up on other aspects of the fight game in THE first place now hes basically calling them idiots.

ill give him 7 bucks to be my butler while im watching ufc 134, seriously people dont realise that if it was rickson or someone else besides him their name would be the legendary one, bruce lee is the real man that created MMA to be honest with him using every art when he was fighting people ages ago, royce just happened to be the lucky guy who knew bjj and entered the crazy sport of 90s MMA or the UFC for that matter

I think he has a right to say what he wants. He's the OG. Whether the UFC pays him is up to them.

Now who they should really get is RICKSON GRACIE.

UFC doesn't need Royce to sell UFC to Brazil, the show is already sold out.

the more this story goes, the less respect I have for the guy.

Looks like he can't just let go. He's a legend already and this kind of PR stunt does nothing else than making him look like an arse
