Kron Gracie scores quick armbar win in MMA debut
Kron Gracie, the youngest of four children to Rickson Gracie and grandson of the late Helio Gracie competed in his first MMA bout today and it was quick.
Gracie defeated fellow MMA newcomer Hyung Soo-Kim in 65-seconds with armbar after pulling guard at Real Fight Championship 1 in Tokyo, Japan, Dec. 23.
On Feb. 24th 2014 Kron revealed on the Joe Rogan podcast #460 that he is pursuing an MMA career which prompted him to training with Gilbert Melendez and the Diaz brothers in preparation for this fight.
He is a black belt in both BJJ and Judo.
