He still has alot of good fights left in him he is just not the dominant fighter he used to be. I would like to see him fight again.
I agree that Royce has an outside chance to submit matt. Ken Shamrock has an outside chance to beat Ortiz too but I'm definitely never gonna say that on one of these threads because it sounds like I think it could probably happen. Matt would have to make a VERY STUPID mistake to lose this fight. Don't get me wrong, I love Royce as a fighter. Gracie Jui-Jitsu has basically started what is MMA today. And I agree that he won't quit or tap out. But, think about their fight. Matt had a very secure submission on Royce and it was clear that he wasn't gonna tap. I've read where matt said he heard his arm pop three times and he decided to just let the sub. go and try something else. Its just not smart for Royce to try and be competing at this level. If he is to continue fighting, he should at least drop his level of competition. I definitely don't wanna see Royce suffering damage such as a broken arm, which definitely could've happened in the last fight. Hopefully, Matt will be the bigger man and just turn the fight down. Sorry Royce, I just don't wanna see you get hurt.
