Royce Gracie Will Not Be Fighting at UFC 134 in Rio: UFC President Dana White
Since the announcement was made that the UFC would return to Brazil for the first time since 1998, there have been rumors floating around that MMA legend Royce Gracie would join the card for one last fight.
Gracie had been openly talking about the fact that he was in negotiations with the UFC as the event, UFC 134, approached.
Last week, Gracie spoke to UOL Esporte about the upcoming event:
"It would be the perfect place to do my last fight. I never fought in Rio de Janeiro and could not be more excited.
"We are negotiating, but we have to decide everything in two weeks. We had only an initial contact and still do not have an opponent, but we should close this soon."
Gracie also appeared on HDNet's Inside MMA last week, "We're supposed to sit down and talk in Toronto (at UFC 129)."
At this point it appears that the 44-year-old Gracie will not get the chance to fight for the UFC in his homeland.
