Kron Gracie won’t fight at UFC 241 in Anaheim, but not because he’s not looking for a fight.
Update on Kron Gracie, his team tells me he won’t be fighting at UFC 242 in August in Anaheim, unfortunately. UFC apparently tried to get him on there but the bout didn’t materialize and they are now looking at a later date. Kron would like to accept a fight soon, I’m told.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) June 18, 2019
After Neiman Gracie’s disappointing yet not unimpressive loss against Rory MacDonald, Kron is looking to get another win for the family.
With his downtime, Kron Gracie appears to be keeping busy training, and recently released a short video. Unfortunately, though he was slated for UFC 241 in Anaheim, he will have to wait for another card. The matchup should be relatively simple; Gracie is only 5-0 and as such should climb the ladder a bit before facing a ranked opponent. But, of course, the Gracie name means viewers, and surely the UFC does not want to squander that.
Who do you think the undefeated BJJ specialist should face next?
