Interesting note here, that on last week's Best of GLORY that aired on Spike TV they announced that on Friday, August 8th they'd be airing GLORY Last Man Standing in some form. If we are to look at this objectively, the next day was scheduled to be the day that GLORY 18 was going to happen, so there is a chance that Spike TV had set aside television time for GLORY in early August. Then again, why not air it on Saturday?
This is an interesting move from Spike TV and -- honestly -- a smart move. GLORY currently does not have an event planned for August and airing the GLORY Last Man Standing event will keep GLORY programming on Spike TV during an off-month, which will hopefully mean that GLORY won't lose viewers like they did the last time they took a break in between shows. The time slot is 2 and a half hours, the replay starting at 10PM Eastern time and running until 12:30, meaning that it will obviously need to be edited down a bit to fit into two and a half hours plus commercial breaks. Still, it is one of the best kickboxing events of the year being shown on Spike TV for free.
It's difficult to complain.
