The GRACIEMAG.com team was paying close attention at this Wednesday’s pre-UFC 129 presser in Toronto, Canada. And one of the subjects to come up was Royce Gracie.
In a recent article on this website we addressed the possibility of Royce having one final fight – perhaps even at UFC Rio in August. UFC president Dana White gave no clues, but a private conversation with the Gracie – who is in Canada – may set things straight.
“I didn’t like his last performance in the UFC, against Matt Hughes,” White forewarned.
“He called me and said he wants to talk to me, so that’s what we’ll do,” he added.
Asked by GRACIEMAG.com editor Marcelo Dunlop whether he felt it would be interesting to have the Gracie’s farewell fight at UFC Rio in Brazil, he replied:
“I don’t have to like anything. Sometimes I don’t want something but the fans do, and it ends up happening. We’ll see.”
