Glory 29 Taking Place in Copenhagen, Featuring Holzken vs. Kongolo

Tonight at the GLORY 27 SuperFight Series the promotion announced that GLORY 29 will happen in Copenhagen, Denmark on Saturday, April 16th. There is only one bout announced for it thus far and it's a pretty big one as GLORY Welterweight Champion Nieky "The Natural" Holzken is set to defend his championship against Yoann Kongolo. Kongolo is currently the fourth-ranked Welterweight on the GLORY roster, making for an interesting selection especially considering how close the Groenhart bout was in Amsterdam.

On top of that GLORY has announced that there will be a Heavyweight Contender tournament to see who will challenge the Heavyweight champion. One would think that Braddock Silva will be involved after his win tonight at GLORY 27.

Also, as an aside, GLORY announced that they signed Ismael Londt during the broadcast. Whoa. Hopefully he's in a tournament because that's a name I've wanted to see in the mix for years now.

They also announced that the ESPN deal is complete and is a multi-year deal, so GLORY officially has their home in the US set in stone.
