Currently ascending in the UFC, Kron Gracie built his finishing style in BJJ tournaments, both classical and no-gi. The son of Rickson Gracie has, for example, an ADCC title.

In the under-77kg division of ADCC 2013, held in China, Kron beat Andy Wang, Garry Tonon, JT Torres and Otavio Souza to bag the gold medal. His quarterfinal match, in particular, sticks out in our minds.
