Cub Swanson could return for Vs. Kron Gracie?



<div _ngcontent-c16 = "" insidehtml = "

UFC FIn February, Kron Gracie has accomplished something that no other member of his famous family has done in the last 24 years. That item was a win in UFC contests. Not only did Gracie, Rickson's son and Helio's grandson, win a UFC fight, but he won the "Performance of the Night" award. The 31-year-old passed Alex Caceres in the second round of the playoffs.

Gracie, who is 5-0 in MMA with five submission wins, faces Cub Swanson in Saturday's U1 Fight Night 161 battle card. & Nbsp;

Gracie knows that his last name has a lot of weight in MMA in the world. He also knows that he will see him with many eyes whenever he fights, but that doesn't seem to bother him at least.

I represent a lot more than myself. I represent jiu-jitsu, I represent my family, I represent my father (Rickson Gracie), I represent Nick and Nate (Diaz), ”Gracie told & nbsp;UFC.com& nbsp;. "So I am very happy to be in this situation and now it depends on God."

Swanson, who has been battling the WEC / UFC since 2007, is in the midst of the longest defeats of his 36-year career. Swanson is 0-4 since December 2017. Prior to that, Swanson has only lost two consecutive fights in one season in his career. & Nbsp;

Gracie knows that Swanson's defeat was a tough race. At that point, he didn't take the 35-year-old lightly.

"This is a great fight no matter what you put it on," Gracie said. Both of us. The Cub lost its last battles, but all of them were the most difficult opponents so it's not like he's losing people that nobody knows. All the guys he lost are big names in reality so I don't look the same way.

If Gracie defeats Swanson, it's no surprise to see him compare himself to a second-place team in his next race. & Nbsp;

UFC Fight Night 161 takes place Saturday at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. All cards are streamed by ESPN +.
