Charles Jourdain Defeats Kron Gracie; Calls His Style ‘Outdated’

Kron Gracie, son of Rickson Gracie was defeated by Charles Jourdain by unanimous decision.

Without fighting in MMA since 2019, Kron Gracie made his return to the sport this Saturday (6), on the main card of UFC 288, in Newark, United States, and the result was not the best. In action against Charles Jourdain, Rickson Gracie’s son and Hélio’s grandson, tried to make it a Jiu-Jitsu fight, but he saw his opponent adopt a good strategy and emerge victorious by unanimous decision of the judges.

In the opening bout of the main card of UFC 288, Charles Jourdain ‘s first action against Kron Gracie was some close range strikes. The Canadian also landed good uppercuts and the Brazilian, in turn, managed the takedown by pulling his guard, but the fight soon returned to standing and Gracie butt scooted towards Jourdain before eventually standing up.

In the second round, the Gracie returned to pulling his guard, however, the script was repeated and Jourdain managed to take the fight back to striking, where he had clear superiority, with fast and precise strikes.

The third and final round had the same plot as the previous ones, with Charles Jourdain quickly applying strikes and Kron Gracie trying, at all costs, to pull his guard on the ground fight, but without managing to develop his Jiu-Jitsu. In the end, after three disputed rounds, the Canadian was victorious in the unanimous decision and recovered from the defeats suffered by Shane Burgos and Nathaniel Wood, respectively. Kron, in turn, suffers the second setback of his MMA career, both at the UFC.

In the media interview, Jourdain declared Kron style of fighting as being outdated.

“Pulling guard in MMA? Nobody does that.”
