    Default UFC: Royce Gracie vs. Matt Hughes

    I would like to know if any body is going to watch it, and if so who do you guys think is going to win. I hope Royce Gracie comes back from retirement and trashes Matt Hughes just to show he's still the man. But the UFC has evolved.

    The UFC has evolved, but will that really matter against a master of submission like Royce? In his prime, he beat much bigger, stronger guys than Matt Hughes. I'm pulling for Royce. He's been the man since UFC 1.

    I have seen Gracie and he is good, but whats the deal with him, has he just come back now?? Is this is first fight back in all these years if so i think he will loose like alot of guys have said the game has eveolved and i cant se him coming back and starting where he left off against a monster like Hughes.

    How many fights has Royce lost? I know he was choked out by Wallid Ismael. Other than that, i don't know if he has lost any other fights. I always like his determination.

    He lost to Sakuraba the "Gracie Hunter" he hasn't really been the same since the second Shamrock fight. Also in this fight with Hughes they won't allw Gracie to wear his trademark Gi, so that puts Hughes at an advantage. Royce was great in his time but I think he was ruined by Shamrock in that rematch since he has never looked the same since.

    He never LOST in a UFC match that he fought in. He lost in the UFC once by default because he couldn't advance due to the exhaustion from beating Kimo.

    Gracie baby......Matt Hughes is going to be the smallest fighter he's ever fought in the UFC....and it's not like he had 4 fights in a row like old times....5 minute rounds will be a breeze for Gracie....He will not even be close to winded and I think Gracie makes Hughes tap out in the third rd....
    It feels good to be back home.

    Matt Hughes is small compared to what Gragie is used to fighting...Matt might be a monster for those used to the new UFC but he's way small compared to the no limit UFC...The Real UFC...

    Gracie lost by default when he couldn't go on to the next round after beating Kimo. And he lost to Sakuraba.

    Starr, read my recent post on Hatton not giving Collazo a rematch. I gave you a CC for making a very good point.

    I'm pullin for Gracie in this fight. His style has never been exciting but it has damn sure been effective. Like many others have said Hughes is small compared to most Gracie opponents, but like Gracie , he is very strong for his weight. Let's not paint Hughes as a bad guy or anything though. He is a humble and very good champion much like Gracie. Let the best man win I say. But I just hope the best man is Royce Gracie.
    "You knocked him down...now how bout you try knockin me down ?"

    Gracie has two disadvantages.

    1: they won't let him use his gi

    2: The stand up rule.
