Rizin FC has begun putting together the card for its New Year’s Eve show at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. The organization announced this week that Rickson Gracie’s son, Kron, will face Japan’s Tatsuya Kawajiri.
Kron Gracie is undefeated in MMA and seeking his fourth win. An ADCC champion and BJJ Worlds runner-up, Kron has won every MMA bout so far via submission. Kawajiri left the UFC after three straight losses and hasn’t fought since 2014.
