UFC Quick Quote: ‘Having a UFC in Brazil without a Gracie wouldn’t make sense’

"It's Renzo's dream to fight in a UFC in Brazil, but it's up to the UFC and Dana [White] to make it happen. Having a UFC in Brazil without a Gracie wouldn't make sense."

-- Renzo Gracie's manager, Abdel Aziz, tells MMAfighting.com that his fighter wants to compete on the Aug. 27, 2011 card at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. In his UFC debut, the legendary instructor was destroyed by "Gracie Hunter Version 2.0" Matt Hughes back in April of this year (2010), but that hasn't tempered his enthusiasm for the sport and he desperately wants to be there when the promotion returns to his homeland. With negotiations apparently underway for Royce to make his return on the card, are we in for a Gracie family reunion when the UFC hits Brazil? If it comes to fruition, how would you feel about that? Opinions, please.
