Today it seems like Royce Gracie was added back to the active roster of welterweights on the UFC's website? Does this hint that a deal may be complete for Royce to return to action at the UFC in Brazil scheduled for August?

I was hoping to see him fight Demien Maia, but Demien Maia has just signed on to meet Mark Munoz @ UFC 131 in June.....

Royce said in an interview on Sherdog when they officialy announced the event that it was being talked about. Wouldn't say any more. I hope it's against another old legend and not someone who will destroy him like Matt did

agreed, but wouldn't you LOVE to see a jiu-jitsu war between Gracie and Maia??? Who else would it be? Matt Serra perhaps? Sean Sherk? If he is fighting at WELTERWEIGHT, then it could be a few different ones....



Just NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Wrestlers.....No Jon Fitch, GSP.......Maybe even BJ Penn would be nice to see.....

Tbh I don't know. But I wouldn't be shocked if it's someone brought in from outside the UFC. I'd enjoy Royce vs Saku in a fairwell match to both

You god damn right! That would be a hell of a match right there. I could watch them two fight 10,000 times.

And with the state of MMA in Japan right now it wouldn't be a shocker to get Saku

This would be about the only bout I would want to see Royce take in the UFC. Both Royce and Sakuraba are too far past their best to face the young guns now.

He was the man back in the day, how about Gracie VS Anderson Silva?
