The Pescatarian Diet of a Gracie MMA Fighter

On this episode of FUEL, we try to keep up with jiu-jitsu and MMA fighter, Kron Gracie. Meat free for more than a year, Gracie’s diet is anything but typical for a fighter. Follow along as Kron fuels himself through the brutal days of training that have made him so dominant on the mat.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, into the legendary Gracie family, fighting came second nature to Kron. He followed in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, advancing through the ranks of jiu-jitsu before his MMA debut in 2014.

Known for keeping his cool under pressure, Kron earned his nickname “Ice Cream Kron,” but you’d be hard pressed to find this fighter snacking on ice cream these days. He relies on light, natural snacks and lots of liquids to power himself through daily mini-triathlons, followed by hours of leading his students through jiu-jitsu training – all before eating his first solid meal of the day.

    Jiu Jitsu…..while you're busy submitting a guy you get kicked in the face by a Nike and wake up with a kidney missing. If you wanna walk away from a fight, most likely 99.9999999 u can..its your ego that controls u.

    The Gracie name is not even close to being lost. That's a completely egocentric view. One that says, 'unless we're always being talked about, we're being disrespected'. The biggest problem the Gracie family faces are their own egos. They consistently attempt to place themselves on a pedestal, above the sport itself and it gets old. It's like that guy that invented something interesting, but can't stop talking about it everywhere he goes.

    The vast majority of the world doesn't care about MMA or JJ. Casuals might not know the Gracie name and there's nothing wrong with that.

    You want your name in lights? Win. People talk about the fighter that wins.
