Royce Gracie, Back in His House 

So what was UFC's big announcement Monday night? Did WWE buy them? Did they buy WWE? Did WWE and UFC merge?

No, those deals will just have to wait.

After trying to discredit the pre-2001 UFC for years, the present owners of this promotion have decided that in order to increase their buy rates in 2006, they will call on the services of a fighter they suddenly acknowledge as being the best ever in that group: Royce Gracie, who fought in the first five UFC's, from 1993 to 1995, and later moved on to fighting in Japan in Pride and then K-1. He will now face UFC 170-pound champion Matt Hughes in a non-title fight in May.

So much for how unworthy the "old" UFC supposedly was.

And as usual, our buddy and colleague Kid Peligro was right on top of this story with an exclusive interview with Royce on ADCC News.
