Kron Gracie in JJ European

Sign-ups end Friday

If the 2008 Worlds left a bitter taste of defeat for having been overcome by Serginho Moraes on his black belt debut, the 2009 European Jiu-Jitsu Championship offers Kron Gracie, son of the legendary Rickson Gracie, a chance to show he has a place among the best black belts on the planet. The young fighter confirmed his presence in the middleweight category of the event to take place January 30th, at the Casal Vistoso Complex, in Lisbon, Portugal.

With the sign-up deadline of Friday the 23rd approaching, the volume of big names to confirm their participation will rise. Besides Kron, already present on the official list are last year’s champion Alexandre Souza, Lucio Lagarto, Michel Langhi and Eduardo Telles.

Also to compete is Remco Pardoel, known from his participations during the early days of the UFC, and Fabio Gurgel, the leader of team Alliance, entering in the senior category.
