    Thanks for the heads up. I'm interested in Kron competing but if he comes in with the attitude of every other Gracie it's just going to be another waste of time.

    Interesting news.

    Agreed about the Gracie attitude. Hopefully Kron doesn't fit the pattern, for the sake of salvaging the family's reputation in MMA.

    You should change the topic to "Kron Gracie to debut in Real Fighting championship/Japan"

    I wonder if they'll dig up Sakuraba and put him up against Kron. They'd be roughly the same size, and I don't think Kron would have too big of an advantage on the feet.

    Just me shooting off my mouth though. I think Saku has less than nothing left at this point. :(

    The Gracies will probably throw money at Sakuraba to fight them until they end up with a winning record against him.

    They have held some solid events already featuring guys like Marcos Souza, Li Peng Zhang, Roberto Satoshi, Jianping Yang and Ken Hasegawa. Definitely interested in how this card shapes up.

    Why Kron Gracie pick this organization and not OneFC for example?

    I hope Nagashima beats him.

    I hope for the sake of this promotion, people don't pull the usual "IS -insert name here- THE NEW PRIDE?!?!" conversations. That benefits nobody.

    Never seen Kron fight but I saw him on the JRP and he seems like a laid-back dude. Renzo was a cool Gracie too. Never liked Royce, Rickson, or Rolles. Roger seems alright too, though.
