Gracie wants to show jiu-jitsu is still the best


Kron Gracie is one of the most prolific jiu-jitsu fighters in the world and is currently negotating his MMA debut. One of his goals is to prove that jiu-jitsu is still the most effective martial art:

While Kron's offense oriented style of grappling is sure to entertain in MMA, he is also known for speaking his mind and MMA fans get a taste of that here as well.

On learning striking he commented:

Taking fists in the face is not as difficult as I thought. Jiu-Jitsu is a lot harder than Boxing, more complex sport.

And closed with:

I'm here to show that Jiu-Jitsu is still the best martial art.

Kron will be champ, trust me. Which weight class 170 or 155 is the question.

  Fair enough.   I think I said "almost."  Or mostly.   Yes, he's got a Brown Belt in BJJ.  But I don't see him using it, except in applying the knowledge of it to counter it with wrestlng. However, Askren's style is "Funky;" therefore, perhaps, a new style = to Jiu Jitsu. A Black Belt in Funky would be pretty funky... It's highly entertaining how he mixes it up with other dudes and tames them like wild beasts, in a pretty non-violent way.  None of his punches is knock-out quality and look pretty sloppy.  But he slaps dudes with them at will and they cannot be stopped--as they're getting dominated. Plus, he's like Houdini in his escapes from Jiu Jitsu sub attempts.  Pretty entertaining and original... But what do I know?  I'm just a big stupid dummyhead...

Kron is a small guy right ? he should do well, its different from Roger. JJ is more useful in lighter weigh classes and the guys hit less hard

If askren was almost a pure stylist he would have gotten tapped tons of times already. ROLO

I'd like to see Kron take dudes out with Gracie Jiu Jitsu.While Ben Askren takes out dudes with American wrestling.Together, they can rule the MMA world and prove the doubters wrong.Two almost pure stylists, doing what they do best: ground fighting the opposition into quivering piles of human mush.Time will inevitably tell (TWIT). Yes, it will.Then there's Weidman. More fireworks, fun and frolics! Let the good times roll. Let 'em roll...
