Enfusion Promoter Pursuing Legal Action Against Badr Hari, Claiming They Had An Agreement

The big news coming out of this past weekend was that elusive bad boy of the kickboxing world, Badr Hari, had finally put his name on the dotted line with GLORY kickboxing. For the 33-year-old fighter who has lost years off of the prime of his career by searching for money fights while spending time in and out of the courtrooms and prison cells, this was the most logical decision and the best way to cement his legacy. Kickboxing isn’t exactly a sport that a fighter can jump around from promoter to promoter and make a steady living like boxing [read more]

Rico Verhoeven Stops Jamal Ben Saddik in Fifth Round at GLORY: Redemption

The culmination of GLORY’s big, year-end GLORY: Redemption event was a catharsis worth the wait when Rico Verhoeven, who was on his way to what was most likely a decision victory over Jamal Ben Saddik, was able to put away one of the few men with a win over the champion late in the fifth round, sealing off GLORY’s 2017 with a bang. pic.twitter.com/0gS6mgWqtM — Streetfight Bancho (@streetfitebanch) December 9, 2017 While Ben Saddik was looking strong early, having Rico hurt in round one, he began to lose steam in round two, with Verhoeven taking over by controlling the pace [read more]

If you follow MMA, this past weekend was one marked by a somewhat unremarkable UFC 218, but most importantly, it featured former K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 champion Alistair Overeem against up-and-coming heavyweight crusher Francis Ngannou.

If you are asking why this is pertinent to GLORY, the answer is simple: it’s been clear for the past few months that GLORY has [read more]
