Rayron Gracie is the latest young man from the famous fighting family to break through onto the competition scene.
Son of the late Ryan Gracie and nephew to Renzo, Rayron is now based in New York and training daily with his cousins Rolles, Gregor, and Igor at the Renzo Gracie Academy in Manhattan along with the large amount of amazing grappling talent out of the world-famous gym.
Gracie – who took double silver earlier this year in the juvenile divisions of the 2017 IBJJF Pans — made his adult division debut on Saturday in New York City at Kasai Grappling, a tournament organized by Rolles.
Fighting with grown men, the 200lb-plus 15-year-old beat an opponent in his weight division, then later faced the man’s father in the absolute division – all 290lb of him!
