Kron Gracie sat down for an interview with Rizin Fighting Federation to talk about his upcoming fight against Asen Yamamoto.
Gracie (1-0), a jiu-jitsu champion, took down Hyung Soo Kim in his MMA debut last December, while Yamamoto, nephew of Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto, will be making his MMA debut.
"We have booked such a great fight. Kron Gracie vs Asen Yamamoto. This is a very dramatic and simple matchup for the viewers," said Rizin general manager Nobuhiro Takada. "This fight has already created a different buzz and atmosphere that the matchups we have so far. Just imagining the outcome sends chills down my spine. Of course they are fighting as individuals, but also for their family. I want them to fight a fight where people will talk about years from now, for them, for their family and for their country. We, the Rizin team would also like to move forward in creating the future of MMA with these two."
