Kron Gracie (Rickson's son) won the -77 division. Finished most matches with submissions too. Tough to do at the highest level athletes face at ADCC.

The kid is in his mid 20's. Any MMA aspirations?

Kron is going to be one of the best grapplers in the future.

I think like 7 family members have won the ADCC tourny. Pretty amazing.

Renzo, Royler, Rogrigo, Roger, Kyra, Kron have all won the tourny. Royler and Kyra won more than one.

Who am I forgetting? Did another family member win the tourny?

I think Kron and Shields trained together some over the past couple months in preparation for their respective matches. It shows. Congrats to Kron. Phone Post 3.0

Subbed Shinya Aoki at Metamoris 2, too. Can't wait to see him in MMA.

How are several people on this thread only now apparently finding out who Kron Gracie is? Seriously, even if you only passively follow grappling, surely you have heard the name before this.

Also, I believe Rodrigo, Roger and Renzo have all won ADCC. I'm not sure if they have been specifically mentioned by name yet.

The thing that makes kron so appealing for a future mma career is that he goes in there to finish everybody, he subbed a lot of people while down on points with that mentality, kron plays for keeps son Phone Post 3.0

I think he has a style that will translate well to current MMA rule sets.

He is agressive and has the ability to make things happen. I just don't want to see him get banged up. But I would love to see him bring ju jitsu back into the mix.

If you watch, skip to about 15:15. Before that it is just mostly handfighting and pushing on the feet. Exciting finish.

I think Krons style will be perfect for MMA.

I think he will do very well.

Krons been training MMA for a couple of years now with the Skrap Pack. He's always posting pictures of him with Diaz brother, Gilbert Melendez and that group.

The great thing about watching Kron is that he just goes for it, he doesn't care about points so his matches are always exciting. He plays the game the way it was meant to be played, not influenced and swayed by taking advantage of rules and time limits. His Jiu-Jitsu is real.

I don't think 145 should be a hard weight for him to make. It's anybody's guess how he will do but I honestly think it's silly that he isn't being offered a contract already.

He's on a serious tear competing in gi and no gi, He finishes guys, he's the son of Rickson and he already said he's going to fight MMA. Ummmm... seems like a no brainer to send him a contract ahead of time so when he's ready to fight in 2014 he's already got a home.

People are going to be curious to see how he does and his style is exciting. His debut is going to get attention.

Kron is shaping up to be the best grappler in the world for his size. I think he still has years to improve as we'll. He will def be a force for some time. I'm not sure how his transition to MMA would go but I'm excited to witness it. Phone Post 3.0

He is one of the grapplers i like to watch these days.
Exciting, goes for a kill and skillfull. His match with Buchecha was great and his Metamoris stuff also.

Can't wait to see him in MMA.

I would like to see him in MMA, but he had better get a lot of striking and wrestling time in, otherwise it's the same old story: elite BJJ guy dominates lower competition, but at the top of the game (UFC), he struggles because he's not well-rounded enough.
