Renzo Gracie The Wildcard, Could Move From 155lbs To Heavyweight

Former Pride star and UFC debutee Renzo Gracie will fight Matt Hughes in welterweight action at UFC 112 this weekend but there are thoughts of different weight classes running through his head:

“Right now I'm 178, and I have to eat a lot so I don't drop even more weight. I can walk around at probably 170, 173, you know? So it's easy to make 155. For sure, I can be the wildcard. I can go from 155 to the heavyweights. The beauty of our sport, we have to live one day at a time. Right now, I have a huge task, which is to face Matt Hughes. So I can't think about B.J. I can't think about Sakuraba. I have one ugly face in my head and that's Hughes, nobody else.”
