GLORY: COLLISION (UFC.tv PPV 10 p.m. CET / 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT)

Heavyweight Headline Bout: Rico Verhoeven def. Badr Hari by TKO (Arm Injury) - Rd1: Badr fighting smart being on his toes landing hard jabs and some good low kicks, getting in and out. Rico staying in Badrs face though and Badr looking a little bit tired towards the end of the round. Rd2: Rico pushing forward again getting aggressive but Badr hits him a few times hard, Rico pushes Badr to the ropes and once the ref breaks them Badr turns his back and walks away holding his arm in a strange way. Ref counts him out Badr looks to have hurt his elbow.

Welterweight Title Co-Headline Bout: Cédric Doumbé(new WW champ) def. Nieky Holzken by Split Dec - Rd1: Holzken keeping Doumbe on the ropes but not landing anything except jabs. Doumbe moving well against the ropes and landing lots of low kicks and a few punches of his own, Holzken not throwing a lot. Rd2: Doumbe landed some real nice punches and low kicks this round with Holzken still just walking forwards not throwing much at all, he didn't land anything significant that round. Rd3: Doumbe's footwork is looking great, Holzken can't hold him in a corner and throw his hands which means Nieky is waiting too much and Doumbe is stealing rounds with activity and showboating, but he is landing consistent low kicks and body kicks on Holzken. Rd4: Doumbe is running away with this fight, Holzken is looking frustrated and getting hit for it. Doumbe countering every one of Niekys single shots with 4 or 5 strike combos. I think Nieky needs a KO here Rd5: Still Nieky didnt come out with the urgency he needed and let Doumbe move and throw lots of light punches and low kicks. Nieky came close to landing a few knees but close doesn't cut it.

Heavyweight Bout: Jamal Ben Saddik def. Ismael Londt by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: didnt expect a feeling out round here but we got one, Londt trying to land his overhand but JBS leaning back just out of range and keeping his jab busy, both guys throw high kicks at the end of the round JBS looks the harder kick of the two Rd2: Slow paced fight so far, JBS threw a few kicks this round and they look so hard but he just seems too heavy to have a high output. Londt is moving forward and slipping punches but still missing his right hand but it only takes one. Rd3: The pace picked up this round after Londt landed a right hand while the ref was trying to break the action and buckled JBS knees a bit. JBS came out angry and aggressive after this and Londt looking tired and hurt goes down from a short right hand with 15 seconds left in the round. 

Super Bantamweight Grand Prix Final: Tiffany Van Soest def. Amel Dehby by Unanimous Dec -  Rd1: safe round for both women, Tiffany landed 1 right hand best punch of the round. Rd2: More of the same but the Women throwing more but missing, 2 jabs landed by Tiffany probably all that really landed clean. Rd3: Again the same thing both women really not going for it like it thought they would, not an exciting fight by any means. 

GLORY 36 SUPERFIGHT SERIES (UFC.tv 7:30 p.m. CET / 1:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. PT)

Light Heavyweight Bout: Michael Duut def. Danyo Ilunga Unanimous Dec Ex Rd - Rd1: Duut lands a 1,2 and drops Ilunga, when Ilunga gets up he stands and trades with Duut and hurts him bad then Ilunga smashes him for the rest of the round. Rd2: Ilunga landing good shots and avoiding most punches to win this round. Rd3: Ilunga continues like the last round and lands a right hand drops Duut, Duut gets up and Ilunga drops him again. Duut gets up again both guys swinging like maniacs and Duut drops Ilunga with a left hook, Ilunga gets up and both guys throw bombs until the final bell. ExRd: Both guys just start going toe to toe again, cut opens up on Ilungas eye, doc takes a look and lets it keep going. both guys brawl but Duut landing more and then finally lands another left hook and drops Ilunga to seal 10-8 in the last round.

Welterweight Bout: Harut Grigorian def. Danijel Solaja by KO Rd 1 (liver punch)

GLORY 36 GERMANY (ESPN3/EverSport PPV 5:00 p.m. CET / 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m PT)

Lightweight Title Headline Bout: Sittichai(C) def. Marat Grigorian by Split Dec - Rd1: Not much feeling out here as they have already fought each other twice. Grigorian being busier with hand and low kick combos. Nasty clash of heads opens a cut on Sittichais head. Rd2: Sittichai looking more comfortable this round, getting his left kicks going, and landing some nice straight lefts. Rd3: Momentum swinging in Sittichais favor, hes keeping great distance now and making Marat miss with hands and countering with his own left hand, left kick, or knee. Rd4: More of the same but Grigorian had one good moment landing a good right uppercut, but not much else all round, just Sittichai kicking, moving and landing left hands. Rd5: Bit of a closer round because Marat was busier but still not landing anything clean apart from a few low kicks, which Sittchai landed more of.

Lightweight Contender Tournament Final: Dylan Salvador def. Hysni Beqiri Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Beqiri with the power but cannot land on Salvadors tight defense while Dylan lands a couple hard low kicks and some decent punches. Rd2: Beqiri not throwing much this round at all and Salvador throwing constant punches and kicks all round, Beqiri is looking tired. Rd3: Salvador takes this round aswell, Beqiri has no more power and Salvador is just too clever.

Featherweight Co-Headline Bout: Fabio Pinca def. Mosab Amrani by Split Dec - Rd1: Both fighters going hard this round swinging punches and kicks at the same time, someone is going to get caught or Mosab is going to get tired. Rd2: All Pinca this round, Mosab hitting air or Pincas guard and Pinca landing pretty much everything. Rd3: Again Pincas round, hes just so relaxed and experienced nothing is phasing him and hes just playing his own game while Mosab swings wildly at air. 

Lightweight Contender Tournament Bout: Hysni Beqiri def. Antonio Gomez by Unanimous Dec - Rd1: Round starts slow until Beqiri landed a hard right and knocks Gomez down. Once Gomez gets up Beqiri got a little wild and got caught and wobbled with a couple left hooks, a few more seconds in that round and Gomez would have scored a knockdown himself. Rd2: Gomez much busier this round throwing combos and low kicks with Beqiri not doing much except for in the last 20 seconds throwing some power but not enough. Rd3: more of the same but Beqiri a little busier but nothing significant landed for either fighter. This fight should go an extra round

Lightweight Contender Tournament Bout: Dylan Salvador def. Anatoly Moiseev by Maj Dec - Rd1: Close feeling out round Moiseev landing more combos but Salvador landing lots of inside low kicks. Rd2: Salavador pressuring Moiseev onto the ropes and landing nice punches and a flying knee to the head, Moiseev backing up too much. Rd3: Moiseev starts moving forward this round but doesn't land much, its Salvador now landing while moving backwards and then pushing forward with hard knees to the body and head and still landing that inside low kick. Great fight.

GLORY Announces Cards For GLORY Collision and GLORY 36

  • Published in Glory

On December 10th GLORY will put forth their biggest show to date, the clash between GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven and former K-1 superstar Badr Hari. What's interesting is that this will be three shows across three different platforms. GLORY 36 will air live on ESPN3, GLORY 36 SuperFight Series will air live on UFC Fight Pass and will be followed by GLORY Collision via UFC.tv iPPV. 

GLORY 36 itself is a fascinating card in a lot of ways, with the GLORY Lightweight title on the line between Sitthichai and Marat Grigorian, Mosab Amrani fighting Fabio Pinca at Featherweight and a Lightweight Contender's tournament featuring some new names like Yodkhunpon against Hysni Beqiri and the return of a former champion in Davit Kiria against Anatoly Moiseev. The SuperFight Series features the semi-finals of the year-long Super Bantamweight Grand Prix, with Isis Verbeek taking on Amel Dehby and Tiffany van Soest against Jessica Gladstone. Danyo Ilunga fights Michael Duut and Harut Grigorian fights Danijel Solaaja to round out the SuperFight Series.

Collision itself is an interesting card, with the Super Bantamweight finals opening the card, then Ismael Londt fighting Jamal Ben Saddik. Nieky Holzken looks to defend his GLORY Welterweight Championship against the very tough Cedric Doumbe and then, of course, the main event.

Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari's Historic Clash Sees Unfortunate Ending

  • Published in Glory

The most anticipated heavyweight kickboxing fight in years went down tonight in Germany at GLORY: Collision. The atmosphere was beyond electric when Rico Verhoeven came down the ramp first, ignoring his champion status for the crowd favorite and living legend Badr Hari. Hari was second, making his typical entrance through the crowd. The crowd absolutely mobbed Hari, to the point where when Hari stepped into the ring about seventy or so fans attempted to follow him, jumping the railing, filling up the ramp and trying to storm the ring.

To say that it was chaos would be an understatement.

After minutes of the team attempting to clear the ring, they finally did and it was underway. Both men were staring daggers at each other and the first round was perhaps one of the most tense rounds that we've seen in years. Badr was landing his jabs, but Rico was controlling the ring and scoring with low, middle and the occasional high kicks. 

The second round saw Hari land a big hook, but Verhoeven land a big head kick. Rico, frustrated with Hari went for a clinch and pushed him against the ropes, landing two big knees to the arm. When they broke, Badr turned his back and walked to the corner, referee Atsushi Onari starting a count with Badr not answering the count. Apparently he suffered an injury to his arm and did not wish to continue. 

Rico agreed to fight Badr Hari again and was complimentary while Hari was somewhat complimentary, but wasn't willing to call him the best just yet. Badr called Rico over. "Next year, I swear, I'll knock you the fuck out."

  • Published in Glory

The time is finally upon us. The most anticipated kickboxing fight in years goes down tomorrow in Germany; Badr Hari vs. Rico Verhoeven. Hari, after a considerable time away from the ring and the spotlight, will be heading to the GLORY ring for the first time to challenge the man who became the top heavyweight in the world while Hari wasn't looking, with both men looking to prove that they are indeed the best in the world.

This, my friends, is the staredown.

Damn.

There are literally three cardloads of great fights on this card as well, so check out the whole weigh-in, but Badr and Rico look like they are going to kill each other. This fight can't come soon enough.

Cedric Doumbe Puts On the Performance of a Lifetime, Usurping Nieky Holzken

  • Published in Glory

After years on top of the Welterweight division, the king, Nieky Holzken, has been dethroned. His loss came by the hands of the man who has quietly ascended the rankings over the past few years without much hype or fanfare in Cedric Doumbe. Doumbe has been looking incredible in all of his recent fights and going into this fight it was hard to discount him.

What ensued was a masterful performance, the exact fight that had to happen against the once-dominant Nieky Holzken by mixing up his strikes, controlling the ring and sneaking in his dangerous uppercuts after landing serious low kicks. Doumbe found a formula to keep Holzken from hitting his groove and carried it through to a resounding victory.

Recent Photo Of Badr Hari Emerges

  • Published in Glory

Badr Hari has been a bit of a ghost lately, we have heard lots about him but he has not been posting many pictures or videos of himself. Someone posted a video acting like it was a recent one of him training but it was from years ago. Now a photo has finally emerged that he posted to social media this week and he looks massive. He reminds of of the K-1 Overeem, Ubereem as people called him. Now lets hope he hasn't just been lifting weights and has been focusing on his biggest downfall... conditioning.

Badr Hari vs Rico Verhoeven Last Fight Comparison & Videos

  • Published in Glory

Since Glory has confirmed Badr Hari vs Rico Verhoeven for December its time to talk about this fight. We will start by comparing their latest fights even though Rico will have one more fight before December, which is a title defense against Anderson "Braddock" Silva.

By the time December rolls around Badri Hari will have inactive for 1 year and 4 months, his last fight against Ismael Londt in Grozny, Russia was in August 2015. Now everyone has different opinions on ring rust but I strongly believe that for an active kickboxer it is very important to fight more often than this. Badr has lots of wars under his belt so who knows how his body is doing these days, but no matter how old or inactive Hari still has crazy KO power that comes from strange angles, no matter who it is if Badr lands a clean punch or kick they can be in for a short night. Here is the video of Badr Hari's last fight, he won but he definitely didn't look sharp nonetheless still and exciting fight.

Rico Verhoeven apart from one minor setback against Gerasimchuk has looked really unstoppable lately. He has improved greatly and is continuing to do so. The problem is that the heavyweight division is nothing like it used to be, back in K-1 GP days every year there were so many amazing heavyweights that it was a toss up who was going to win the tournament. Now that most of those guy have retired no one has really taken their place which leaves Rico in a shallow division. At the moment I don't really see anyone that can challenge him skill wise but with heavyweights anyone can land that KO punch or kick and Rico has been knocked out before. Rico wants to make sure to stay active before his fight with Badr so even though he already fought in March of this year, he will be defending his title in September which in my opinion is a little dangerous but that is his choice. Ricos last fight against Mladen Brestovac wasn't his best performance but he showed how good his cardio is, which is a big thing in the heavyweight division, also his leg kicks are nasty. One thing Rico is constantly criticized about is his lack of KO power and boring fights, well Badr Hari has never had a boring fight so I don't think we will have to worry about that this time around.

GLORY Collision Hype: Badr Hari vs. Sem Schilt From It's Showtime

  • Published in Glory

On December 10th kickboxing's biggest fight in ages will rock Germany with Badr Hari returning to the spotlight to take on GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven is a showdown for the ages. The event will be aired live on UFC's PPV service and is set to be a callback to the glory days of kickboxing. UFC posted a video from the archives for free to hype fans up and it's the legendary bout between Badr Hari and Semmy Schilt from It's Showtime. At the time Semmy Schilt was the undisputed king of kickboxing, serving as K-1's biggest nightmare in a huge beast of a fighter who put on staggeringly brilliant performances that seemed to lack that K-1 "pop" and excitement.

Badr Hari was a rising star at the time and, as you can see from the video, his star was perhaps never bigger worldwide. What's fascinating is as much as I remember this fight, it's still incredible to see just how many fans were in attendance and how rabid they were. These were truly the glory days of kickboxing.
