    EDIT: Here is Gilbert telling Chael about it.

    Chael: "Is he cross training?" haha sounds old school NHB/MMA days.


    Who else is super stoked for Kron's debut in the UFC?

    So far I only watched his fight against Miyuu Yamamoto's son, Erson.

    I heard he finished Kawajiri but I can't find the fight anywhere.

    How do you think he will do?

    I didn't follow his BJJ tenure that closely...but I know he defeated Ryan Kolanz, and Kolanz is/was a beast.

    Someone should have told Rickson that Kron isn't actually a name.

    That said, I love high-level BJJ and I hope he does well.

    Rickson Gracie is a boss and a great martial artist in every sense. I saw the video of Eddie Bravo and Joe Rogan showing him the rubber guard.

    Rickson was super cool about it. He was really genuinely interested and attentive to Eddie. Telling Eddia Bravo that he didn't agree w/ Brazilians who resented Bravo for going full no-gi...and that it was totally cool that he was doing his own thing and not following BJJ tradition. Eddie Bravo looked so happy at the praise.

    Tough first fight for him, IMO.

    500-2 (ducking Bas, ducking Sakuraba) and his son Kronos will very likely cut his cock off some day, that would be his last loss...

    Ricksons kid vs sakus kid in japan with sapp vs lesnar “free to juice” as a co main event would be the best card ever.

    His BJJ is known. His stand up and ability to get the fight to the ground will be the onbvious hurdle. Few will be able to handle Kron once it hits the ground.

    Bruce Leeroy went 5 rounds with Yair. He wrecks the little fruit loop.

    If he somehow wins, would be cool to see him against Ryan Hall.

    Yeah, but I have mad respect for Kron.

    If Kron loses, I still give him mad props for testing himself in the UFC. He doesn't have to. Today, having that Gracie name and status as Rickson's son gives you many avenues to make a living without having a fighter's life. Him doing this shows he is a true warrior.

    According to Gilbert Melendez on Chael's podcast...he has been cross training a lot with Nate Diaz in boxing. As for wreslting, I'm not sure.

    Chael himself is very excited to have a Gracie back in the UFC, and so am I.
