Frustrating and depressing..he's the son of Rickson Gracie, a God at bjj..Kron seemed super confident in his strict bjj style carrying him to the top but it didn't happen..instead, he fought a guy on his way out and he never came close to utilizing his bjj..so hard to watch Kron come forward and just eat punches to the point he gave up completely on grappling..

Kron was a guy in Mma with a little bit of mystique surrounding him but that's gone completely..he showed huge holes in his game that I doubt at the age of 31, he can fill

Rafael Lovato Jr is the best of the BJJ crop atm. He’s 10-0 and has a win over Gegard Mousasi.

Yes he did, he made several attempts to close the distance and clinch Cub but Cub easily defended and delivered hard punches in return..

I gues Krons wrestling is so weak that his takedowns don't look like takedowns lol

Lovato Jr. Is great but he's a pretty strong guy ..he is not physically weaker and slower than his opponents like Kron and most bjlers are and this factors big time in getting the fight to the ground

Kron didn't look hurt at all during the fight while cub was reacting to every punch kron hit him with.. But kron didn't do enough to win the fight and let cub get on top few times

Reacting as In attempting to avoid or lessen the blows? Let’s not act like Kron was throwing heat

Kron’s stand up is the same as Dern, he is just more durable. He just plows forward like a drunk cow and swings. A younger more powerful fighter than Cub would have knocked his dumb ass out.

I was a big a Rickson fan as anyone back in the day.
But the outpouring of grief that his son lost a decision is bizarre though.

Who gives a fuck? He was born wealthy, trained from birth in BJJ, given a school by his father, and will never have a real job.

And he's already declared he actually won. So I'm sure he'll be fine.

Why do people say dumb shit like Cub is on his way out

Kron still got his licks in, despite obviously losing. Cub was pretty beat up after the fight.

Good grief, one tough fight and now you think he cant adjust and get better? Come on, OP.   Cub was a big step up for Kron.  Not many guys would get matched up with someone like Cub in their 6th pro MMA fight.  He got beat, but, he'll evolve and continue to get better.

Because it's true, he's not sniffing a title shot and has compiled lots of losses.

I was rooting for Kron but honestly I dont understand a lot of the fallout - especially from Kron himself

No, you didnt win that fight.  Fuck even if he had gotten the decision, that is no way to fight or to get through a fight.  You cant have a career standing and taking punches like that.  You probably never will be a champion doing that.  Its just too hard on the body/head. I dont understand Kron on social media talking about how he won that fight.  He just didnt.  And I wanted him to.  

He is what, 31?  Can he get better?  Yeah but honestly he probably should have spent his mid to late 20s getting better at pro MMA (yes I know he fought in Japan but it was sporatic).  Doing this shit into your 30s doesnt get easier.  He should have spent less time making weed smoking vids from the sauna and more time in a good fight org fighting once or twice a year.  

With his toughness, he would be awesome by now.  I hope he still gets there but Im doubtful tbh

Gracie rules he eventually takes that fight, likely by sub.

I agree with this.... yes he was getting lit up however he weathered the storm. If there was a round 4 or 5 cub would of been taken down...

SN bet he's either retired or back fighting in Japan within two years.  It's not that he doesn't have the ability to adjust his game, he obviously just doesn't want to.  Like Luke Thomas said, he literally has 1999 Gracie striking.  No footwork or head movement.  Just walking forward like a zombie.  Zero wrestling.  If he were serious about getting better he'd get with a real serious elite camp.  Until then he's just going to continue the Diaz/Gracie strategy of getting the piss beat out of him and claiming he would have won if there were no time limit.

Because he is the only one of the crop who can land a takedown

Remember he said he wanted to get as much octagon time as possible for this fight so he can build experience. He’s probably in for the long haul so i get why he didn’t go for many takedowns if that really is the reason behind it. But at the same time it’s not smart to CHOOSE to stand with Cub Swanson if you can avoid it. Either way not a smart gameplan by Kron.

blas4ublasphemy - Gracie rules he eventually takes that fight, likely by sub.

Gracie rules his vital organs eventually explode and he dies in the ring
