Rizin used a cardboard cutout of Kron Gracie for press conference and face-off with Asen Yamamoto

Since upstart Japanese promotion Rizin signed Fedor they have pulled out all the stops to insure the undercard of their New Year’s Eve event is stacked. Rizin’s most recent talent acquisition inlcudes the signing of ADCC champ Kron Gracie.

Gracie is scheduled to fight the nephew of Japanese legend Norifumi ‘Kid’ Yamamoto, Asen Yamamoto at Rizin’s inaugural event. Rizin was so stoked to have Gracie under their promotional wing that they used a life sized cutout of him for their press conference.

Cardboard Kron Gracie doesn’t blink once during his stare down with Yamamoto. Intense and recyclable.
