Royce Gracie hints that he will be fighting Matt Hughes at UFC Rio

Kenny Rice hit it right on the head in this interview with legend Royce Gracie, Royce=Yoda. He even has the inflection in his voice to add to the wisdom in his words. Since the UFC announced it was going back to Brazil for the first time in thirteen years the rumors have been swirling around the first (linear) UFC champ. Will he be fighting in Rio and who? Well, it looks like he’s stepping in the cage, everything points to it except Dana alone in a hotel room with Ariel Helwani and a single cameraman announcing it. Gracie’s opponent however, is up for much speculation. Where do we turn for a face to face confrontation for answers? HDnet baby.

Check out Royce sandwiched between Gilbert Melendez and a giddy Jorge Santiago and kind of answering questions on InsideMMA.
