Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Renzo Gracie Ain’t Done Yet

(If you’ve somehow forgotten how awesome Renzo is, watch 0:16-0:22 of the above clip. Props to Kostakio.)

Though he hasn’t competed since his DQ win over Frank Shamrock at EliteXC: Destiny in February 2007, don’t assume that Renzo Gracie is retired from the ring. The 42-year-old MMA pioneer, who is currently helping train Matt Serra and Andre Gusmao for their fights at UFC 98, says that he plans to start preparing for his next fight at the end of this year, right after he opens two new Renzo Gracie Academies in Connecticut and New Jersey. As he told TriStateFighter, he would happily fight for "anyplace that [would] take me…they’re willing to take an old man in, I will be there." Go here to listen to TSF’s full interview with Renzo, in which he discusses Serra’s preparation for Matt Hughes.

Bonus, after the jump: The trailer for Renzo Gracie Legacy, in which Renzo remembers Johnny Cash lyrics a little differently than we do.

("I will die shitting on my pants like everybody else, but knowing who I was, you know? Knowing for sure and truly who I was.")

Just watched the 2005 BJ-Renzo fight...

I liked that BJ (before he went off the deep end). He thouroughly owned Renzo, standing and on the ground.

BJ is such a little bitch. I cant get over it. He talks like a child and hes a pussy. Hes lost all my respect for him. I want Ken-Flo to woop his ass.

yea give him a break....half of south americas population is in a prison in the us somewhere. He couldn't keep track of all his homes in every pen.

Wikipedia says boy named sue was recorded at san quentin. Give Renzo a break, he mixed up the prisons.

Renzo is one of those once in a lifetime people. Even aside from the fighting.....they broke the mold after they made that bad ass mofo. I can't wait to see this movie, documentary, or whatever the hell you wanna call it. Hey bens, please keep us(me) posted on when and where we(I) can get my THC covered fingers on a copy of this.

I for one am excited about this, Renzo is one of my favorites and I can't wait to see him fighting long as it doesn't turn out like a iceman situation.

@ garth

"Unrelated note, Strikeforce, bring Renzo back for a rematch with Franky-boy. Two old guys going to town on each other is a sure seller."

Ditto in a big way. That fight left a bad taste in everybody's mouth.

BJ PENis: You shit your pants?

Unrelated note, Strikeforce, bring Renzo back for a rematch with Franky-boy. Two old guys going to town on each other is a sure seller.

Say what you want about BJ, but Renzo Gracie is one of the nicest, most genuine people you'll ever meet. Nearly everyone who's met him says the exact same thing.

The lyrics were from "a boy named sue" not "folsom prison blues"
