ESPN’s Brett Okamoto is reporting that Kron Gracie might be taking a UFC fight in January.
Hearing the UFC is working on signing decorated grappler Kron Gracie, son of Rickson Gracie, with the intent to have him fight at UFC 233 on Jan. 26 in Anaheim. Gracie is 4-0 in MMA, including a win over Tatsuya Kawajiri in 2016.

Gracie, whose four victories in MMA have all been by way of submission, is also an accomplished BJJ competitor. He won ADCC in 2013, Euros in 2009, and has medaled at Worlds and Pans.
If the fight happens, Kron would be the first Gracie to fight in the UFC since 2013, when Roger Gracie lost via decision to Tim Kennedy at UFC 162.
