Renzo Gracie preparing for second UFC appearance.
 
Inactive since an April 2010 loss to Matt Hughes at UFC 112, Renzo Gracie (13-7-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is preparing for a second fight in the UFC.

"I'm getting ready to fight again," Gracie told MMAjunkie.com in his native Portuguese. "I have a six-fight contract with no predetermined time frame. I still have five fights to go, so I plan to jump back into it."

Gracie, a former PRIDE and IFL fighter, entered the UFC in 2010 with a three-fight win streak, though he hadn't fought since his February 2007 disqualification win over Frank Shamrock at "EliteXC: Destiny." Prior to the win streak, which also included wins over Pat Miletich and Carlos Newton, the MMA and Brazilian jiu-jitsu pioneer had lost six of seven fights.

UFC officials have yet to make any announcements, and Gracie is no longer listed on UFC.com under the promotion's active welterweights though that's hardly an official measure of his status in the organization.
I hope he's been working on those leg kicks.

who gave Renzo a six fight contract with an open ended timeframe? are we going to see him getting Sakuraba-style legged kicked into oblivion when he is 60?

I always wondered why Matt went right at Royce taking him to the ground and basically stayed away from the ground with Renzo. Matt seemed to have a lot more respect for Renzo in the way he game-planned. Any thoughts?

I think Matt wanted to show off his kickboxing chops, and maybe he knew Renzo was counting in his jiu-jitsu teaching job as his 9-5 and didn’t want to show him up too badly on the ground.

[edit] that, and Renzo didn’t throw any no-setup lead elbows.
