Royce Gracie after a victory at UFC 1

MMA founding fighter Royce Gracie is 49 years old, but insisted in a recent interview with Brazil’sCombate that he is not retired. The UFC Hall of Famer is signed with Bellator MMA, and is coming off a win via strikes over Ken Shamrock at Bellator 149 in Feb.

“Man, I’m trying to leave this game,” said Gracie, as translated by Lucas Rezende for BE. “I’m not retired. I’m on a break, but it’s hard to quit, because I like to fight. When you like something, it’s not work, it’s a pleasure. Everyone wants to fight me. It’s a long list. That’s good, it shows there’s demand. I’ll face whoever the promotion puts in front of me. I never picked an opponent. “

“I heard it’s a long list. Sean Sherk, Dan Severn, Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson, everyone wants to fight me. The old guys are showing up.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
