On Saturday, October 14th GLORY makes their way to mainland China with GLORY 36 Guangzhou. The event, which features a solid roster of Chinese fighters, is headlined by a precarious fight that we’ve heard rumored for a few months now in Rico Verhoeven against former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Silva, known for his win over Fedor Emelianenko and his war with Mark Hunt, leaves MMA after a string of knock out losses, but will make his way into the GLORY ring to fight the best heavyweight in the world. This is a non-title bout.
That’s the headliner of the SuperFight Series, the main card is headlined by a Middleweight title bout between champion Simon Marcus and Alex Pereira, with that show featuring a Featherweight tournament and a professional sanda fight.
