Another member of the Gracie lineage will wear gloves and venture into the great market of MMA . Kron Gracie used the social networks to tell the world of his transition.

Kron , who is 25, wrote on Instagram:
“I will not fight at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo because my opponent Rodolfo Vieira is injured. So, I’ll take a break from Jiu-Jitsu championships to devote all my energy in MMA.”
Kron also said he was eager to get to this stage of his career and thanked those who are helping him in this new journey :
“I waited a lifetime for this transition. Can not wait to test myself at the highest level. Special thanks to brothers Nick and Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, Gilbert Melendez, Rickson Gracie and Jean Jacques Machado.”
