Report: Matt Hughes Vs. Renzo Gracie In Works For UFC 109

0

Heavy.com has the scoop on this interesting match up that would take place in earlier 2010:

Heavy.com has confirmed with sources close to the UFC that a welterweight matchup between Renzo Gracie and Matt Hughes is in the works for UFC 109 in February.

Gracie, 42, last appeared in a February 2007 disqualification victory over Frank Shamrock. Rumors have circulated over the last month that the legendary Gracie family member has been in negotiations with the UFC. Both fighters have been approached about the fight, but bout agreements have not been signed.

This bout has some if not a lot of intrigue to it. Gracie has never fought in the UFC and Hughes is to a point in his career where it is unlikely he will compete for a title again but has the name value to draw a lot of PPV buys.
