Krons no doubt one of the best grapplers

Kron talks a bit about "real" jiu jitsu and his mma aspirations here: http://www.cagepotato.com/exclusive-metamoris-ii-headliner-kron-gracie-carries-on-family-legacy/ Phone Post

I LOVE Kron's game. No fancy guard or anything. Simple, old school approaches, and he beats most people, or at least hangs with them.

Too bad he is a tremendous douchebag.


Couldn't of said it better myself.

All 4 matches he won by sub, here is a really good match against Tonon and the final against Souza, the Souza fight is awful until the end because it was all hand fighting standing as Souza just kept backing up


Kron vs Tonon

If he largely gives up sport BJJ and starts training full-time for MMA now, he could be a contender like Jacare. If he tries to dabble in both for any significant amount of time, I don't think he'll ever do anything serious in the MMA world. It's tough to get well-rounded enough when you make your debut at age 26.

BJ Penn Forever - 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?

Renzo has also won more than once, too. 1998 and 2000.

I am aware, but im just saying marcelo did not compete in this adcc, or the mundials for that matter. Sort of makes it bittersweet, i imagine you want to beat 'the man' at your weight division, and that well and truly is marcelo. Not sure if he has said officially if he has retired from competition or not... Phone Post 3.0

Marcelo subbed him in 2009 with his guillotine

They met again in 2011 and Marcelo won by points, Kron actually almost subbed him with a guillotine where Marcelo said later he almost went out
