It’s kinda cool to get the respect…..he respects the Gracie family because it’s true that none of us would be here without my uncle creating the UFC, so yeah it’s kind of surreal sometimes that I am in the situation that I am in,” Kron said.
I am here to make some noise, I am here to make some problems for everybody“. He said.
