The UFC will be returning to Brazil this Fall when Rio de Janeiro hosts UFC 153 in October and one Brazilian legend has hopes of fighting on the card in front of his countrymen.
Renzo Gracie spoke to MMAWeekly.com this week about the possibility of fighting in Brazil before his career comes to an end:
“That’s a possibility. In my life I learned one thing, impossible is nothing,” Gracie stated about possibly competing at UFC 153
“I love the crowd there. I love the intensity that surrounds the whole arena when you’re in Brazil fighting and Brazil is cheering. It’s a different ball game.”
“Almost my whole life I fought in foreign lands. I fought in Japan, I fought in America, but I didn’t have the chance to fight in Brazil as often as I would love to do it,” said Gracie.
“For sure, if I have an opportunity I’ll be there. If it’s not on this next one, believe it’s going to be on a future one.”
