  • Cesar Gracie Disappointed Renzo Gracie Camp Helped GSP By: Sherdog.com Staff



    Cesar Gracie (left) is old school. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com



    Cesar Gracie, on “The Savage Dog Show,” discussing his belief that the Renzo Gracie camp should not have helped prepare Georges St. Pierre to fight Jake Shields (a Cesar Gracie student):

    “Renzo’s like a brother to me. You have to understand, we grew up together. Nothing’s going to change. People try to make a big thing about it, but I did have a talk with Renzo and I said, ‘Renzo, you’re training a guy that doesn’t represent your academy, that represents another academy, to fight a guy that represents a Gracie academy. It doesn’t make sense to me. It just doesn’t.’ Georges is a great guy. Georges St. Pierre, from all accounts, is respectful. He’s a decent human being is my understanding. … I did have that discussion with Renzo. I don’t know if anything came about from it, but that was pretty much it. I’m an old-school guy. … I don’t know exactly what they’re doing over there with that. It’s just not my way. I’m old school and I’m going to die old school. That’s who I am. I made my feelings known to Renzo about it. I don’t think my guys appreciate it.”

  • Gracie vs. Hughes II By: Jake Rossen

    Wind the clock back a little bit and a guy like Renzo Gracie would be big-time, big-ticket fighter on the UFC circuit. He doesn’t manufacture personality or bulls--t posturing. You get what you get -- usually some macho-pugilistic wisdom that would sound like garbage from anyone else. Renzo says it and it starts to sound pretty good.

    But at 43, and as much as we’d like to think otherwise, his best days are probably behind him. The gift of being an engaging presence has stuck, though, as evidenced by footage of Renzo talking up the Matt Hughes fight Saturday in Abu Dhabi. Renzo has been there plenty for the submission wrestling tournaments, assisted with the UFC’s relationship with the United Arab Emirates, and will probably be the most comfortable fighter there. Win or lose, Hughes won’t pancake him in the same fashion as he did Royce Gracie in 2006. In a win, it would mark the fifth time Renzo bested a former UFC divisional champion. A resume like that, and you can talk all you want.

  • Gracie Embracing Shot at Hughes By: Mike Fridley






    Listen to Renzo Gracie's radio interview from April 2, 2010's Beatdown program.


    The vision of Matt Hughes pummeling cousin Royce Gracie at UFC 60 remains a vivid memory for Renzo Gracie.

    Gracie told Jack Encarnacao on Friday’s Beatdown program that he’s embracing the opportunity to get his shot at family redemption this Saturday at UFC 112 “Invincible” in Abu Dhabi.

    “You have to understand, my cousins and my brothers and my relatives; I can talk bad about them. I can hit them. But nobody else can do it,” said Gracie. “That’s the reality, because it drives me crazy.”

    Hughes (43-7) will offer a stiff test for the Pride veteran, who will make his 170-pound debut in returning from a three-year hiatus. Gracie (13-6-1, 1 NC) stated that he does not expect the long layoff to affect his performance at UFC 112.

    “I trained very hard and I dedicated the last six months to just training for Matt Hughes. I think I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to this fight,” said a confident Gracie. “It’s a great honor to fight him, he’s an unbelievable fighter. Very tough guy; he was one of the most dominant [welterweight fighters] out there.”

    In Hughes, Gracie will look to defeat his fourth former UFC champion in a row. His last three bouts have been against Pat Miletich, Carlos Newton and Frank Shamrock, respectively.

    Gracie last saw action in February 2007 in an EliteXC contest that ended suddenly when Shamrock landed an illegal knee to the head of the downed BJJ black belt. The fight was dominated by Gracie before the foul, and the Brazilian walked away the winner by DQ. The clash will be Hughes’ first since edging Matt Serra at UFC 98 last May.

    “I can’t wait to test myself, especially after such a long [time] sitting on the couch [eating] potato chips,” laughed Gracie.
