I love the guy, but he's past his prime! The fighters today are so well rounded compared to back then.

I have no interest in watching him fight anymore. His BJJ, while very respected, is somewhat archaic by today's standards (lack of wrestling, footlocks, etc.). His salary demands would be extremely high and wouldn't be worth it from a fighting perspective, but, perhaps, it would be through marketing. If he were to get an offer, then it would have to be against someone who is also past his prime that could garner some interest. Him v Wallid Ismail would have a nice BJJ undertone (Wallid choked out Royce in the late-90's) and Wallid is a very polarizing figure. Add in the fact that he and Joe Silva have a solid business relationship and you can see the possibility increase.

Past his prime and once the Gracie's began offering belts online, I've lost all respect.
You can buy a belt anywhere.
To quote Royce, "A black belt only covers two inches of your ass; you have to cover the rest."
I can't say I would have much interest in seeing him fight anymore. I'd rather remember him as he was in his prime. He was a pioneer to the sport and the UFC owes him a great debt of gratitude IMO.
Rickson had the best fighting stance. It was like those 1920's Irish boxers with the giant mustaches.

They've all been active in recent years. Hell, Renzo just fought this year, too. They live more off of their last name now in both MMA and submission grappling. Only Roger has been successful in the family in recent years. However, he's easily among the top-3 grapplers in the world right now (Drysdale, Jacare, Roger).
