Royce Gracie is ‘not against’ WMMA even though he likes his ‘girls delicate’

UFC legend Royce Gracie offers his thoughts on Women’s Mixed Martial Arts and whether he supports female fighting in general.

Royce Gracie may not necessary enjoy watching women competing in Mixed Martial Arts competition, but he is certainly not against it.

"I like my girls delicate (laughs). But I'm not against it. My daughter is training in it and one day she wants to fight."

While that answer does not suggest a disdain for WMMA, Gracie did not appear overly excited about the idea of his daughter potentially following in her father's footsteps and fighting inside the octagon one day.
