Renzo Gracie Teases Return to Fighting


Hi sports fans.  Renzo Gracie (13-7-1 (1)) mentioned on MMA Junkie Radio today that he will be “ready [by] the end of the year to have some fun.”  Sounds like to me that he’s thinking about making a return to fighting.

Renzo hasn’t stepped inside a cage, octagon, or ring to compete since his TKO loss to Matt Hughes at UFC 112, back in 2010.

Gracie went on to say. “The UFC, they became a machine… so if you’re name is not out there and you’re not fighting, it’s difficult to keep yourself (busy)…  So it’s like if I don’t fight there, I don’t mind. I’ll be fighting for ONE [FC]; I’ll be fighting a Japanese organization. This for me is fun, and thank god I don’t need the money to do it.”

So what do you think?  Should Renzo return, and if so, what are his chances of success in the UFC or a smaller promotion?
