After more than three years of being away from the octagon KronGracie is returning to the ring at UFC 288 for the featherweight competition. Gracie shares his thoughts on how the UFC can make things more exciting.
His last UFC fight ended with a unanimous decision in favor of his opponent Cub Swenson. Gracie might have been able to turn the fight around if he had more time. He shares his idea to revisit the rounds module in the UFC.
It’s no longer a fight between you and the guy.” The fight is no longer between you and your opponent .”.
Kron Gracie’s suggestion is not new. It has been done before. The UFC fights and previous MMA matches did not have a time limit, but Gracie believes the sport was not ready at that time. He said that the sport was not ready at first. “But I believe the sport is much smarter now.” The fans are much smarter .” Despite this exciting suggestion, it’s unlikely that the UFC will return to the crude days.
Cub Swanson, Kron Gracie’s last opponent, is retiring soon
Cub Swanson was Kron Gracie’s last opponent at the UFC Octagon. He is an American MMA fighter who competes in the bantamweight category.
Swanson has been a UFC fan favorite for years and was recently inducted into its Hall of Fame. Swanson said in an Ariel Helwani interview that he wanted to leave the sport according to his terms. He stated, “I definitely feel it’s the final chapter of my career.” I want to make sure that my career ends on a positive note.
He lost his last fight against Jonathan Martinez in October in the second round. Kron Gracie has returned to action despite Swanson’s retirement. He will fight featherweight Charles Jourdain at UFC 288.
