Tuesday night in Japan, Kron Gracie competed for the first time in Mixed Martial Arts and he had a successful debut as the headliner of Real FC 1. He took on a Korean wrestler in Kim Hyung-Su and Rickson Gracie's youngest son quickly showcased the grappling chops their family name has been synonymous with.
After pulling guard, Kron immediately locked up an armbar and ended the fight in just 65 seconds.
Kron trained with Nate and Nick Diaz, Gilbert Melendez, and Jake Shields to prepare for his MMA debut. Watch the clip of the entire bout above.
