Royce Gracie decides against appeal of failed steroids test

The Fight Network has the details.

The quote from Gracie...

“I did not appeal the decision because I have been in Spain for the last 1 Ѕ [months] on vacation with my family, and for me to appeal, I would have to
get a lawyer, and then get some experts to run tests and then get more experts to argue with their experts, or I can just pay $2500 fine, and sit out for
one year,” Gracie wrote. “Well, I fight once a year anyway and it’s much cheaper to pay $2500 in fine then $10,000 retainer to attorney's alone. As for
my fans, those who believe me, believe me anyway, and those who don’t, does not matter what I do, or what I say, they will not believe anyway.”

The Iron Sheik would call him something that rhymes with jeep clue gun of a twitch if he read this.
