GLORY 30 Los Angeles
Middleweight Title Headline Bout: Simon Marcus (c) def. Dustin Jacoby by Unanimous Dec (Jacoby put up a good fight, and had some great moments but he got an 8 count in the first round (overhand right) and the 5th (right kick body kick). He was too busy trying to land 1 KO punch.
Lightweight Co-Headline Bout: Marat Grigorian def. Djimé by KO Rd 1 (perfectly timed right high kick just as Djime moved his face into it)
Welterweight Tournament Final Bout: Richard Abraham def. Francois Ambang by Split Dec (Great back and forth fight, it could have gone either way, I thought Ambang did more damage but Abraham was busier)
Welterweight Tournament Semi-Final Bout B: Francois Ambang def. Daniel Morales by Unanimous Dec (Ambang just landing the better shots all 3 rounds)
Welterweight Tournament Semi-Final Bout A: Richard Abraham def. Casey Greene by Unanimous Dec (Abraham landing overhand rights at will eventually gets a knockdown in the 2nd and wins the fight by decision)
GLORY 30 SuperFight Series
Middleweight Headline Bout: Jason Wilnis def. Joe Schilling by Majority Dec (close fight up until Wilnis landed an overhand and left hook in the 3rd and scored a knockdown)
Heavyweight Co-Headline Bout: Guto Inocente def. Brian Douwes by Unanimous Dec (Entertaining fight with Inocente throwing non stop spinning attacks and Douwes just not mounting enough offence to win)
Super Bantamweight Bout: Tiffany van Soest def. Esma Hasshass by Unanimous Dec (Tiffany scored a perfectly timed right hand to get a 10-8 first round and was just a bit too experienced for Hasshass)
Middleweight Bout: Mike Lemaire def. Karl Roberson by Unanimous Dec (Lemaire scored a knockdown in round 1 and Roberson couldn't get into the fight after that point)
Light-Heavyweight Bout: Manny Mancha def. Warren Thompson by Unanimous Dec
