    Kron did well, unusually relaxed compared to other fighters, his competition experience clearly shows from years of BJJ experience. My next hope is he spends more time on takedowns because he's constantly pulling guard against fighters that aren't specialists in folk wrestling nor striking. Ice Cream is always fun to watch.

    I was pretty Impressed with Kron in this fight, Really great Guard Work and Dirty Boxing as well. However I do feel that the Guard Pulling was one part of his Game Plan, I feel he is always trying to bring something new to his fight game. Who knows perhaps next he might start with the Double Leg Takedowns or Other Type of Takedowns??

    Kron vs Aoki would be incredible.

    What's next for Kron?

    Handled Crusher well. Kron's TD threat seemed to make Crusher cautious so did not throw anything to hard. Kron calmly absorbed shots and built pressure. Crusher seemed compelled to go for a risky but if landed could do damage stomp but failed and left his leg out to be wrapped up and choked out as Kron patiently advanced.

    Seems like Rizin provided nice proving grounds for Kron. Does Kron stay and dominate or dabble in other Orgs?
