Default Matt Hughes vs Renzo Gracie

Quote:
I was training BJJ today, and my instructor (I won't give out his name...a black belt under Jean Jacques Machado), told me that he was informed at Machado's academy in Tarzana, CA that Renzo Gracie will be fighting Matt Hughes early next year... I know this rumor has been around for a few months, but I just wanted to throw this bit of news out there...
This was posted on some other forums.
Complete BS??? or????

oh for sure, but who knows.
They brought one Gracie in to fight him,
it would be HUGE.
Matt also said he wanted big fights with big named people or something.
So, who knows.

this would be an awesome matchup to watch. renzo is undoubtedly my favorite gracie. i met him at ufn 18 in nashville and he was absolutely humble and generous with his time. but we've already learned that our representative of american wrestling will kick the ass of their rep of BJJ. Renzo doesnt have any crazy strikes to really look out for so Matt would send him to flight school and proceed to get the gnp stoppage in round 1.

Your not quite the student of the sport you think you are David


Renzo has fought BJ Penn and more recently Frank shamrock.

He's one of the most famous Gracies and he holds the monopoly of Gracie JJ in the tri-state area of the north eastern U.S.
