Royce wants GSP
Royce Gracie was on the Bubba the Love Sponge show yesterday and when asked about his plans to fight again, he said he wanted back into the UFC and was interested in a fight with Georges St Pierre. He even went so far as to tell Bubba to bring it up with Dana when heís on next week.
Now as much as Iíd enjoy seeing Royce fight again (what can I say, heís a true legend of the sport), the last thing Iíd want to see is him getting his ass kicked by Georges St Pierre. Can we PLEASE stop using the pioneers of yesterday as stepping stones for the next generation? I know itís the pioneers calling for these things, but I think their brains are a little fried from too much awesome in the 90ís.
This is where we need to start looking into legitimate ways to transition our aging superstars into different professions so they donít end up like Ken Shamrock. If Dana is interested in bringing Gracie back, let it be against another aging legend. If it ainít gonna be that way, then how about putting him on Portuguese commenting duties?
Unfortunately, Dana only looks out for the fighters who remain loyal to him, regardless of how big a part they had in shaping the sport. Royce doesnít fit that mold Ö in fact, didnít he recently imply that the UFC framed him for using steroids?
Pulled this off Fightlinker.
Seriously? I think he would just get murdered by GSP. What is he thinking?
I just don't think he would have the pull for the $$ he once did. Don't get me wrong I would watch it, but since he lost to Hughes he would have to have a fight that he dominated before he fought GSP to be seriously considered.

There is no way he is serious. Either he was joking, got caught up in the moment, or he is starting to suffer from dementia.

I would be truly sad to see royce get his ass handed to him... again.
I'm also guessing Dana will not make this happen
