Robin van Roosmalen has proven himself to be one of the toughest guys in kickboxing. The GLORY world champion in the face of fighters like Giorgio Petrosyan and Andy Ristie, then dealing with young up-and-comer Sitthichai in a confusing pair of fights (Sitthichai won the first, Robin won the second, their records say otherwise). Now, van Roosmalen will drop to Featherweight, the weight that he has waded into in MMA, and get an immediate title shot against newly-crowned two-time Featherweight Champion Gabriel Varga at GLORY 34 Denver.
On top of that GLORY is putting on a Middleweight tournament featuring four top fighters, including Israel Adesanya!
