Kron Gracie, the son of Rickson Gracie, has signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and will make his promotional debut against Alex Caceres at UFC 233.
ESPN.com was first to report the booking. UFC 233 takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and features a flyweight championship bout between Henry Cejudo and T.J. Dillashaw.
Kracie, 30, hasn’t competed since December 2016, when he submitted Tatsuya Kawajiri with a rear-naked choke in the second round at Rizin 4. The Rio de Janeiro native owns a 4-0 career mark, with all of his victories coming by way of submission.
Caceres, meanwhile, has been victorious in two of his last three Octagon appearances. “Bruce Leeroy” last competed at “The Ultimate Fighter 27” finale, where he garnered a split decision against Martin Bravo.
