There’s news involving two members of the notorious martial arts family: Kron Gracie, son of Rickson, and Daniel Gracie, Renzo’s cousin.
As previously reported here on GRACIEMAG.com, the EA Sports MMA video game will be launched October 19 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Beasts from the Gracie family like Roger and Rickson were already confirmed for the game, which has the tough task of disputing market share with UFC Undisputed 2010.
The news is that Kron, who has never fought MMA, is on it. One interesting possibility is pitting father against son, but of course, only for videogame aficionados. The black belt’s avatar can be seen in the image below, as reported on the Sensei Sportv blog.
Now Daniel Gracie, who hasn’t stepped in the MMA ring since November 2006, has a date for his return. Though he didn’t confirm the event, the black belt told MMAFighting.com he’ll return to action November 20.
“I want to fight in the best shape of my life, and that’s what I’m working on now. It’s time to return and get excited,” he remarked.
