    Say what you want about the gracies...

    But kron gracie is for real...he will hold UFC gold before his career ends..IMO

    The guy showed everything he needed to tonight to be a champion, he just needs alittle time to round his game out abit more

    He has the heart and bloodline of a champion, Cub fought phenomenally and Kron was just abit behind him on the stand up ..didnt have the answers now but bit down on his mouth piece and fought the fight to end..A true Warriors path

    Hickson and Kron clearly > the rest of the clan and its not even close..

    Im excited to see him progress..theres an official uncrowned MMA prince in the UFC boys..hes coming

    He showed a ton of heart, but cub is a gatekeeper right now and he looked like he didn’t belong in there. He’s got a long way to go

    He should switch camp, that Diaz´s boxing style is bad for his brain.

    No he won't hold a belt, his striking looked slow as hell and one dimensional takedowns looked subpar I expect he'll be out of the ufc fairly fast. He's also 31 years old he isn't going to evolve and doesn't have the most time in the world.

    Does Kron have a slight bit of scoliosis.

    His shoulders are uneven and his pecks look a few degrees off

    He is in his 30's. HE is a good fighter, he has heart and great jiu jitsu. Let's not kid ourselves though he will never be champ. A prime Cub would have finished that fight in the first.

    Honestly, i don't know what he expected. Probably counted on Cub's chin being gone but it ain't happening if you don't have bricks in your hands. Should've just take Cub down in the 3rd as he surely wasn't expecting it.

    Surely won't win the title, though.

    He looked effective at close range...landed quite a few solid shots on cub and did damage, not sure what more to expect from a different gym ..hes still progressing as a striker period

    He did not show everything he needed to be a champ. He took tremendous amount of damage in only his fifth MMA fight. He lost a clear decision. No kicks, no good takedown attempts, and lost control in all the grappling exchanges. He looks like Ronda with tougher durability, except he's also fighting in a completely stacked division of talent.

    He needs to implement more into his game, and avoid being rushed like this. Alex Caceres was a good matchup because Alex Caceres balance is absolute shite and he's barely on-par for a UFC fighter.

    I wouldn't go that far... It was a mostly stand-up fight which obviously isn't Kron's specialty and it was still competitive.

    No. He's 31. He's going nowhere.

    It was kamikaze style, let’s see how his chin looks after doing that for 5-10 fights

    He put in solid work, striking wise agaisnt a guy with like 6 times the MMA experience and did damage in close with his hands..

    Not sure if your watching without bias..

    Cub out gamed him tonight for sure and showed Krons alittle green still but that is cured with time in the game/cage..i expect big things
