He'll probably fight in Japan once a year again at most, and the best we can hope for now is Royce-Saku II. I think he's learned his lesson about trying to challenge top competitors in UFC. He'll go back to some high dollar jobber matches in K-1's MMA show or something. Or do what most Gracie's do and quit fighting professionally, and claim to be stacking up a 400-0 record of fights no one has ever, or will ever see - but can't prove wrong. You know, Rickson and Cesar Gracie style. I'm sorry, that one was a bit low. I'll keep them up in the future, Mr. Alumni
