After making a successful debut in the UFC and maintaining his undefeated record with a first-round submission, Kron Gracie has another opponent in his crosshairs, and this one is much more experienced than any previous one.
According to information obtained by Combate.com, Kron will be fighting Cub Swanson at UFC San Francisco on October 12. The event will host the bout in the featherweight division.
Kron (5w, 0l), whose MMA record consists of five submission wins so far, had a great first effort in the UFC as he beat Alex Caceres. He had previously submitted four fighters in Japan.
Swanson (25w, 11l), despite being a well-known face in the organization, is going through his worst phase to date, having accumulated four straight losses (to Brian Ortega, Frankie Edgar, Renato Moicano and Shane Burgos). His arm was last raised in April 2017 after he defeated Artem Lobov, but the American can boast of having bested Dustin Poirier, Charles do Bronx and Tatsuya Kawajiri.
