Renzo Gracie can light up the room when he walks through the door. Partially because he's charismatic, and partially because that door leads into Renzo Gracie's Jiu-Jitsu Academy on W. 30th Street in Manhattan.
Gracie looks to be in ridiculous shape, regardless of his age (he's 43). He's a sleek 185 pounds, down from the 210 pounds he was walking around at in October.
After Gracie camera-jacked Fanhouse's interview with Matt Serra, he was in front of the Fightin' Words camera to discuss his return to the fight game. Gracie makes his UFC debut -- three years after his last fight -- at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi against welterweight legend Matt Hughes. (Gracie and UFC president Dana White both said that's the fight plan, although technically, nothing is official until it's official.)
