Damn, Royce is old. Why come back now and potentially get whooped.
bragging rights or all the $$ that is flowing in the UFC
how long ago did gracie last fight, really? But one thing he has gong for him is he always fought guys stronger then him so this will be no diffrence except he is 40+ im guessing
royce fought to draw on NYE with Tokoro...who was much smaller than him...he doesn't stand a chance vs hughes
Im guessing massive $$$.
If Hughes doesn't win by knockout, this shit is rigged
I am still not convinced that Gracie will get beat. I look at it like the theory that your big brother is always tougher then you because he "CAN'T" lose. Mentally a big brother normally can't lose because they won't let themselves. That is the way I see it... He will train hard, his family will train him like a maniac and it will be his "last" fight ever. He will go out in style. He wouldn't take the fight if he didn't know he could win. I see Hughes as a young Severn.
This is going to be a big fight, but i dont think its going to be historic.I think Hughes will win by ko round 1.
My instructor (under relson) said that Royce hasn't kept his game up to par with the rest of the MMA world, really, and that he will probably get beat, although there is always a chance of hughes fucking up and getting caught.
Hughes is just a much, much more well rounded fighter, plus add in to that he's a workhorse, constantly fighting the toughest in his division.
I hope Royce will actually do some training as opposed to just teaching. When he lost to Wallid Ismael a few years ago they said that his BJJ belonged in a museam.
He went to a draw with a guy 20lbs lighter on NYE. I hope he's still got something left.
Royce will not be allowed to wear a gi.
Wasn't that fight sanctioned by K-1 were grappling is not allowed?
Is everyone forgetting that Randy Couture is 2 years older than Royce and still fighting?
I think Royce will lose, but I'm still going to be rooting for him.
haven't you guys seen Cinderella man
K1 has both mma and kickboxing fights.
And has constantly been fighting at the top of the food chain.
The last real opponent Royce beat was Dan Severn... in 1994.
Doesn't negate the fact that he's not too old to still be fighting.
Well created movie.
poor royce,he will get destroyed by hughes
I agree, He's not too old to be competitive either. It's his training that's lacking.
Yoshida's no slouch. Even if it's considered a draw.
