Toronto - Royce Gracie will have to wait a little longer to find out if he will get one more chance to fight in the UFC.
Gracie and his manager Mike Kogan were planning on meeting with UFC president Dana White while in Toronto for UFC 129, but Kogan told NBCSports.com that the trio never met due White's busy schedule prior to the event.
Kogan said that he hoped to talk to White this week about the possibility of Gracie fighting again inside the Octagon, possibly at UFC 134 on Aug. 27 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.
Initially White didn't seem interest in signing the 44-year-old Gracie, but he appears to have at least warmed up to the idea over the last couple of weeks.
"Who am I to say [whether Gracie should fight again]?" White told reporters last week. "There's times when I step in – for instance, like Chuck Liddell, and I say, 'Chuck, I think you should retire.' Do I think Royce Gracie [should fight again?] I don't know. He didn't look too damn good against Matt [Hughes] the first time [at UFC 60]."
The legendary Gracie (14-2-3, 1 NC) last fought in 2007, defeating Kazushi Sakuraba via unanimous decision. Two weeks later, the California State Athletic commission announced Gracie had tested positive for an anabolic steroid. However, Gracie has always disputed the claim.
"It's all rumors for now," Gracie said when asked about the chances of him fighting for the UFC again. "We've haven't talked; nothing's been said.
"I'm interested. I got one more. I got one more."

Can anyone top the big three of Silva, Jones, and GSP as the best pound-for-pounder fighter?
