Nathan "Carnage" Corbett has been one of the most sought after fighters by fans to make the jump over to kickboxing and fight big names, and it looks like it's finally going to happen. Today it was announced by Mark "The Hammer" Castagnini on the Hammer Time Fight Show that Corbett had signed a two fight deal with GLORY.
Demand for Corbett in GLORY had been high prior to the signing, with rumors going back of the promotion pursuing the Australian fighter for quite some time now. Corbett is of course the best heavier weight Muay Thai fighter in the world, and one of the main reasons why he's held in such high regard is his fight with Tyrone Spong in 2009, where Corbett knocked Spong out but ended up with a no contest to show for it. He's mainly stuck to fighting in Muay Thai with a kickboxing bout here and there.
Corbett fights at 95kg, the weight where Tyrone Spong just won the eight man light heavyweight tournament. It seems like they're destined to fight again, now that they're in the same promotion. According to Castagnini, Corbett will debut with GLORY in October in Chicago.
Corbett's last fight came in April, where he knocked out Kamil Sokolowski in the first round. In 2012, he defeated fellow GLORY fighters Steve McKinnon (for the second time) and Stephane Susperregui.
