Kron Gracie transitioning to MMA

 

Anytime a world class grappler transitions to MMA there is always the question of whether or not they can apply their style to a fight and deal with getting hit. The Gracie Family has a long history of it's jiu-jitsu fighters transitioning to MMA, but none more impressive than Kron Gracie. Kron is by far the most credentialed and medaled Gracie and it will be exciting to see if he can make the transition to MMA:

I'm not competing the expo because my opponent @rodolfovieirajj got hurt ... So now I'm taking a break from Jiujitsu tournaments and focus all my energy on MMA! I've been waiting my whole life for this transition ... And I can't wait to test myself on the highest level!! Special thanks to @natediaz209 @nickdiaz209 @jakeshields @gilbertmelendez @ricksongraciejj @jeanjacquesmachado

'first fight' and 'Aoki' just don't go together.

He fought under 170 for same day weigh ins at ADCC. 155 shouldn't be a problem.

He should drop to 155. Rematch Aoki under MMA rules would be a good first fight.

Where's JSho? With all his wins at Brown, Kron may actually have the highest medal count, just not all golds. I think he is the most prolific competitor in the Gracie family since Royler. Roger only did the Worlds and ADCC for awhile.
