UG news says Kron is the most medalled and most highly rated Gracie of all time.

The usual nonesnese and misinformation. Phone Post
Yeah I read that and cracked the fuck up. In pure grappling it's a no contest

Roger > all

I'll be rooting for Kron though, i model my grappling style a lot after him Phone Post 3.0

Most credentialed and medaled Gracie who has transitioned into MMA? That drivel's as bad as something you'd see on Yahoo News.

WTF? What about Roger?

I'm not defending bad article writing but "credentials" don't necessarily refer to official records or medals. It can mean something more personal and subjective. For a lot of people, it's significant that Kron is entering MMA because his father was once the #1 valetudo guy and his father's father was the main developer of BJJ. So from that angle, one could say that no one has Kron's "credentials".

Again, not arguing that side.. just pointing out that the term leaves room for interpretation.

Isn't he like 5'9"? That's pretty tall for Alpha Male.

170 would be comfortable, 155 would be a big cut Phone Post 3.0
Isn't he pretty small? He looks a good deal smaller then Gilbert Melendez Phone Post

Considering his size, he's an alpha male in the sack?

I hope he does more training over at El Nino Training center than he does with Nate. Him and Nate seem to be great friends but if Kron can learn to defend Gils TD's and score his own on him his future will be bright in the UFC..

Rhythmprince -  Hope that he doesnt only count on his bjj like Roger did. Phone Post

You're right of course but I'd love to see him win using just BJJ

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.

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

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

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

agreed, restricting ourselves to major tournament wins (adn at black belt), Kron is way behind:

Clark: 1 x Pans
Igor: 1 x Pans NoGi
Kayron: 2 x Pans, 1 x Pans NoGi
Kron: 1 x ADCC, 1 x Euros
Kyra: 4 x Mundials 2 x ADCC
Renzo: 2 x ADCC
Rolles: 1 x Pans, 1 x Pans NoGi
Rodrigo: 1 x ADCC
Roger: 10 x Mundials, 3 x ADCC, 1 x Pans, 2 x Euros
Royler: 4 x Mundials, 3 x ADCC, 2 x Pans
Ryan: 1 x Brasileiro, 1 X Pans
