Kron Gracie – the son of Rickson Gracie – has been booked for his octagon return!
He has been sidelined from competition for the last three and a half years, having last fought in 2019.
And on May 6, at UFC 288, he’ll face Charles Jourdain.
Nolan King, MMA Junkie reporter, was the first to report on the Gracie’s comeback:

Kron Gracie sports a 5-1 professional MMA record and has last fought at UFC Fight Night Tampa, against Cub Swanson, back in October 2019.
It was then that he suffered the first loss in his professional MMA career, via unanimous decision.
Kron has earned a number of medals. His first one was back in 1998, when he was just 10 years old and when he won the first place in the yellow belt division at the American International Championship.
Since then, he conquered many important bouts, such as the one for the ADCC title in 2013.
Kron ventured into MMA in 2014, with his first fights being under the Japanese “Rizin Fighting Federation”, before signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
