Speaking on HDNet's popular Inside MMA show, MMA legend Royce Gracie discussed his possible return to the Octagon at UFC: Rio. The legend refused to reveal the name of his opponent, but still didn't deny the option of UFC 60 rematch against Matt Hughes.
Royce Gracie is currently 44 years old, holding a professional MMA record of 14-2-3. Gracie's last fight was back in 2007, against Kazushi Sakuraba (Gracie tested positive for anabolic steroids after the fight).
UFC: Rio will take place on August 27 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The event will be headlined by a UFC Middleweight Title fight between the reigning Champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva and Yushin "Thunder" Okami. Light Heavyweight rematch between Forrest Griffin and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will serve as the co-main event.
