Although he is approaching his 50th birthday, MMA legend and UFC Hall Of Famer Royce Gracie is apparently not ready to call it quits just yet.
Gracie (15-2-3), who last fought at Bellator 149, defeating fellow MMA legend and UFC Hall Of Famer Ken Shamrock via first-round TKO back in February, recently told Brazilian MMA outlet Combate that he is not ready to call it a career yet.
“Man, I’m trying to leave this game,” Gracie said. “I’m not retired. I’m on a break, but it’s hard to quit, because I like to fight. When you like something, it’s not work, it’s a pleasure. Everyone wants to fight me. It’s a long list. That’s good, it shows there’s demand. I’ll face whoever the promotion puts in front of me. I never picked an opponent. “
As Gracie continued, he revealed that he is specifically interested in potential fights with former UFC Lightweight Champion Sean Sherk, former UFC Champion and UFC Hall Of Famer Dan Severn and martial arts legend Don “The Dragon” Wilson.
“I heard it’s a long list,” Gracie said. “Sean Sherk, Dan Severn, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, everyone wants to fight me. The old guys are showing up.”
