Renzo Gracie’s dream is to fight in a UFC in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu wizard, Renzo Gracie is not the only Gracie interested in the UFC’s return trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, his manager has stated that he’s more than open to any offers the promotion makes as far as his involvement on the card.

Gracie made a slow start to his UFC career losing via TKO in the third round to fellow MMA legend, Matt Hughes back in April. If the UFC decides to go for a Gracie on the Brazil card, perhaps fans can get to see Renzo alongside his legendary cousin, Royce.

Speaking to MMAFighting.com, Ali Abdel Aziz said:

“It’s Renzo’s dream to fight in a UFC in Brazil but it’s up to the UFC and Dana [White] to make it happen. Having a UFC in Brazil without a Gracie wouldn’t make sense.”
