#repost @sandhumma ・・・ Kron Gracie (@riokid) submits Alex Caceres via first round rear-naked choke. Flawless victory. UFC debut on ESPN against an opponent that has almost 7 times more MMA fights? Pfft. Piece of cake for Ice Cream Kron. Hell of a debut. On paper he has it all. If he continues to perform, win and is promoted well then we could have a star on our hands. There's something very fitting about a Gracie winning a fight in the UFC Octagon (first time since Royce Gracie way back in December 1994) on the promotion's debut on ESPN no less! Kron Gracie got it done with style points. You can't script stuff like this. #ufcphoenix . . . 📷 @jhedges photo / @GettyImages
