The latest member of the Gracie Family has a dream, which is for Bellator to book a Gracie Family versus The World card.
“I have a dream, a Bellator card with all my cousins, putting them all on the same card,” he said to MMA Fighting. “That would be perfect. Neiman is up there, we’re still coming up. We’ll all be on the main card soon and we’ll make it happen. That would be super cool. I think that’s our goal in Bellator.”
There have been a total of five Gracie Family members to compete in Bellator, with those being Kywan, Royce, Robson, Neiman and Khonry. Some may feel a lot of pressure representing one of the most famous families in all of MMA, but Kywan has been dealing with that pressure for a long time now.
“I’ll tell you what, I feel no pressure when I’m fighting, it makes no difference,” Gracie said. “I was born with this pressure. I won’t train more or less because of that. I’ll always give my best. I think it’s good because there’s more attention over me. I’m in the spotlight even though I haven’t conquered pretty much anything in MMA yet, a lot of people will be watching the fight. Every positive thing that happens is because of the success that my family had. There’s not much else I can do to elevate my family’s name. The family is known worldwide, my uncles and grandfather, the previous generation has done a great job. I’ll just add a little bit and build my story.”
