GLORY has released the finalized (at least until the last minute switches inevitably happen, right?) cards for both GLORY 39 Brussels and the GLORY 39 SuperFight Series. The SuperFight Series remains strong with Sitthichai defending the GLORY Lightweight Championship against Dylan Salvador, Marat Grigorian fights Anton Petrox, Hesdy Gerges battles the ever-mouthy Chi Lewis-Parry, Harut Grigorian battles Pavol Garaj, then we round out with Tyjani Beztati vs. Sabri Ben Henia and Junus Majandinov vs. Meng Qinghao.
Of course, GLORY is a one-two punch with the cards, leading into GLORY 39 proper which features a Featherweight tournament with Petchpanomrung vs. Alexei Ylyanov and Serhiy Adamchuk vs. Nafi Bilalovski. Signs point to Adamchuk looking to regain contendership and his title, but anything can happen in these tournaments. The battle of the big men goes down in the co-main with Jamal Ben Saddik against Guto Inocente and then the main event is the third meeting between Cedric Doumbe and Yoann Kongolo, the key difference here is that Doumbe is the reigning GLORY Welterweight Champion looking to defend.
All of this goes down on March 25th.
