However, Gracie has also been thinking about fighting at ADCC and fighting a Vale-Tudo match. ‘After conducting a technical seminar in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro, I am on my way to Australia March 29 and when I return, I might fight ADCC. I’ve already talked with friends to apply for me, but I am waiting for an official invitation’ stated Royler Gracie, who has been thinking about retiring from the ring.’It might take three or four years. I still want to do two or three Vale-Tudos before ending my career. But I?m not in a hurry. I will stop on the top. I want to win my last bout. I want to finish my career as I started: fine!’ concluded Royler Gracie, who has an MMA record of four bouts won, lost two and a single draw. Royler added: ‘My family and I have done too much for Jiu-Jitsu and I believe we belong in the history of Jiu-Jitsu. So, I don’t have to prove anything more in Gi competitions. Lots of people challenge me everyday, but they just want a piece of me, of what I’ve conquered’ Gracie declared.’Whatever, I?m waiting for an offical invitation to fight, and I am negotiating for a fight Vale-Tudo in June. I do not have more information about it, it all depends’ he said.
