  • Published in Glory

Glory 10

It feels like a great weight lifted off of my shoulders that GLORY have finally gone ahead and announced that GLORY 10 will be in Los Angeles, California (or at least in the area of Los Angeles). GLORY 10 will feature a one-night, four man Middleweight tournament with four of the best in the business going toe-to-toe. It is Joe Schilling, Artem Levin, Steven Wakeling and Jason Wilnis competing for being called the GLORY Middleweight Champion.

On top of that is the main event which is Jerome Le Banner vs. Sergei Kharitonov as well as a Super Fight between Robin Van Roosmalen and Shemsi Beqiri. There will be much more announced soon for the card.

It takes place September 28th at the Citizen's Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

K-1 Gets a Date for Los Angeles: September 8th

  • Published in K-1

As a part of the K-1 Rising in Madrid broadcast this afternoon, K-1 finally announced the date of the K-1 World Grand Prix in Los Angeles: US Grand Prix show. We already learned about what arena they would be booking, but were not clear on the date. Now we have a date, finally, and that date is September 8th at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. There have been no names or fights announced yet for the event, but oddly enough, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was shown in the crowd a few times and the commentators dropped hints at Rampage Jackson moving to K-1 after his UFC contract was up. Chalk that one up to simply speculation for now, but it would not be a terrible idea to draw in fans.

GLORY 37 Main Card Results

Middleweight Title Headline Bout: Jason Wilnis (c) def. Israel Adesayna by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Israel throwing lots of hands and landing the straight right to the body at will but Wilnis countering everything with low kicks and landing 90% of them. Rd2: Israel landing some nice fancy kicks on Wilnis guard and sliding some nice uppercuts and body punches through. Wilnis still landing the low kicks and a couple left hooks this round that didn't phase Israel. Rd3: Wilnis lands a few right hands this round while Israel trying to slip all the punches. Adesanya still sliding a few straight punches through the middle. Rd4: Israel is being much more active in all these rounds but Wilnis is moving forwards and landing about 1 or 2 punches in the round and low kicks. Rd5: Adesanya got his groove this round and was making Wilnis miss everything while Israel was landing hard uppercuts and straight punches, great round for Adesanya.

Welterweight Tournament Final Bout: Yoann Kongolo def. Karim Benmansour by KO Rd 3 (liver punch, right hook combo) -  Rd1: Kongolo pressuring the savvy Benmansour and landing a few good punches but Benmansour making Kongolo miss and landing little kicks and punches once in a while. Rd2: Kongolo throwing nice combos all round but must have a sore shin because he hasn't thrown any kicks only knees. Right at the end of the round Kongolo set up a perfect left hook to the liver and dropped Benmansour who gets up and is saved by the bell. Rd3: Benmansour is a tricky customer but it looks like Kongolo has his number this fight, Benmansour throwing lots but just doesn't have the power to move Kongolo back again with barely any time left in the last round Kongolo throws a left hook to the head, left hook to the body, and right hook the head and drops Benmansour who can't beat the count, KO win for Kongolo. 

Heavyweight Co-Headline Bout: Guto Inocente def. D'Angelo Marshall by Split Dec - Rd1 - Marshall literally chasing Inocente around the ring non stop and not allowing him to make any distance to spin. Marshall landed some good punches and a few low kicks, while Guto was clinching moving to get away. Rd2: Starts off the same as the first, but then Guto clips Marshall with a right hand that drops him. Guto gets over aggressive after and gets caught a few times but seems to take them well. Rd3: Both big men tired but Marshall still able to land clean punches but he never seems to realize when he has Guto hurt. Looks like we should be going an extra round. ExRD: Sloppy round by two tired heavyweights, neither have power or balance anymore and mostly just clinching all round, minus a few right hands landed from Marshall, tough round to score.

Welterweight Tournament Semifinal Bout B: Karim Benmansour def. Alan Scheinson by Split Dec - Rd1: first time I've seen Scheinson, hes throwing powerful shots but looks a little stiff and not able to hit Benmansour clean, while Benmansour is landing his right hand often but with no power. Rd2: Nothing crazy happening in this round, neither fighter landing clean but lots throwing and missing. Benmansour is more active and landing more small stuff. Rd3: Benmansour landing lots of low kicks to the back leg of Scheinson this round and a nice spinning backfist while Scheinson looked tired and landed nothing all round.

Welterweight Tournament Semifinal Bout A: Yoann Kongolo def. Konstantin Khuzin by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Khuzin doing well using his knee to keep Kongolo from getting too close but not landing it too hard, best shot of the fight was a right hand through the guard by Kongolo. Rd2: Kongolo getting inside better this round on the tall fighter, kongolo lands a nice spinnig back kick that hurts Khuzin but he stays up and still manages to keep Kongolo at bay for the rest of the round. Rd3: Khuzin looking worn out and Kongolo throwing combos like crazy, then Khuzin out of nowhere lands a very quick straight right and drops him but the ref doesn't count and Kongolo is very lucky, that would have caused a draw at least.

GLORY 37 SuperFight Series Results

Featherweight Title Headline Bout: Robin van Roosmalen def. Matt Embree by TKO Rd 4 (ref stoppage) - Rd1: Great round by both fighters, Embree's hands looking powerful and quick, but hes not blocking low kicks and ate about 6 or 7 clean. Embree used a few good front kicks to push Robin away. Rd2: Again Robin landing hard low kicks all round and Embree landing nice body punches and covering up well. Rd3: These are close rounds, Robin is pressuring but not landing clean punches, but neither is Embree, and it seems that unless Embree hits Robin on the chin hes just shrugging them all off. Rd4: Robin picks up the pressure and it looks like Embree is hitting a wall, RvR lands a liver punch that hurts Embree and then a barrage of punches and Big John McCarthy calls it off.

Heavyweight Co-Headline Bout: Jhonata Diniz def. Tomas Mozny by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Mozny looking good early, keeping distance, landing some long punches and quick high kicks but Diniz stalking all fight and lands a right hand to drop Mozny with 10 seconds left in the round. Rd2: Mozny looking real tired and Diniz walking forward while Mozny falls all over the place. Nothing crazy landing apart from a good right hand from Diniz. Rd3: Diniz pushing forwards all round getting hit with a few jabs but not much else while landing decent low kicks and right hands on Mozny.

Middleweight Bout: Warren Thompson def. Mike Lemaire by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Thompson pushing forward and throwing bombs when Lemaire is on the ropes while eating a few low kicks, but Thompson landed a good right hand that wobbled Lemaire. Rd2: More of the same this round, Lemaire can't handle the pressure that Thompson is bringing and is just ending up on the ropes for the whole round. Rd3: Both fighters are tired which works in Thompsons favor with his forward pressure and just leaning on Lemaire while throwing a few punches. Should be a first Glory win for Thompson.

Super Bantamweight Bout: Zoila Frausto def. Daniela Graf by Unanimous Dec

Featherweight Bout: Giga Chikadze def. Victor Pinto by KO Rd 1 (Liver Kick) - This fight was all Chikadze, he landed whatever he liked and Pinto landed nothing, 2:00 into the round he landed the liver kick and Pinto was in agony, game over.
