Kron Gracie Happy for Nate Diaz's Star Power While Kron Gracie may be new to the UFC, his family's legacy and his fighting ability have earned him massive respect. Part of that is his public friendship with UFC megastar Nate Diaz. And, as a good friend should, Kron is absolutely ecstatic that his friend and teammate is finally getting the superstar push that he deserves. Kron spoke to the media ahead of his bout against Cub Swanson at UFC Tampa. Popular in his own right, Kron's family roots are deeply embedded in MMA. As the son of Rickson Gracie, Kron was destined for stardom. However, it seems like hanging around Diaz and the Skrap Pack has raised his cult following to an entirely higher level. (pun maybe intended) https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vhipviz1K0Xg Gracie Speaking to the Media Kron spoke about his friendship with Diaz, the BMF title, and training with the Skrap Pack. \u201cI think it\u2019s beautiful,\u201d said Gracie in reference to Diaz's stardom. \u201cNate\u2019s finally getting what he wanted, the recognition that he deserves, and he basically took that. He didn\u2019t ask nobody for no favors, and no one was giving him no time of day at a certain point," said Kron." He basically took that into his own hands, the power of his mind and his training and his fights and everything, and he was like, \u2018You know what, I\u2019m going to just go take what\u2019s mine.\u2019 He did. That\u2019s all thanks to him and his spirit.\u201d Not only does Kron believe in Diaz's superstardom, but he also believes in his promotional ability. While many have been critical of the creation of the BMF title, Kron seems to support the idea. Especially because it further proves in the power of the Diaz brothers. \u201cHe created this (BMF title) belt out of thin air, and now it\u2019s a belt,\u201d Gracie said. \u201cI saw it on ESPN, and it said \u2018Masvidal is fighting for the BMF belt.\u2019 On ESPN it was a little thing and I was like, \u2018What the f**k? They\u2019re fighting for a belt now?\u2019" Gracie continued, "This guy (Nate) is amazing. It goes to show. I don\u2019t need to say how impressive that is and how much of a star he is. I knew that from the beginning. knew what he was and how powerful him and his brother are.\u201d The Skrap Pack It's undeniable how tight of a unit the members of the Skrap Pack are. Always cornering each other, the love and respect they have for another is very genuine. As much as Kron admires the Diaz brothers and their abilities, they think the same of him. Expect them to cheer Kron on as he takes on Cub Swanson in the co-main event this weekend at UFC Tampa.
