GLORY 39 and GLORY 39 SuperFight Series Results

  • Published in Glory

GLORY 39 went down today, March 25th in Belgium, featuring two big title fights and a Featherweight Contender's tournament to see who will fight Robin van Roosmalen for the vacant GLORY Featherweight Championship. The one last-minute change is that Chi Lewis-Parry vs. Hesdy Gerges did not happen due to what was announced as "illness."

Both champions retained their belts, Sitthichai with a brutal knee for the finish in round four against a very game Dylan Salvador, and Cedric Doumbe via an absolute dismantling of a former foe proving that he has advanced quite far since their last meeting. Doumbe called out Murthel Groenhart after the bout.

Updated Cards for GLORY 39 and GLORY 39 SuperFight Series

  • Published in Glory

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.

GLORY Announces GLORY 39 Featuring Doumbe vs. Kongolo 3 and More

  • Published in Glory

With GLORY 38 rapidly approaching GLORY has announced GLORY 39 Brussels, which takes place on March 25th featuring a headliner between GLORY Welterweight Champion Cedric Doumbe and career-adversary Yoann Kongolo. These two have a lot of history between the two of them, with Kongolo one of the few men to beat Doumbe, never mind twice. Kongolo earned his shot with a recent tournament victory, placing these two on a collision course.

Also featured will be a Featherweight tournament, entrants to be determined. The winner gets a shot at the champion, but if Robin was stripped it's unclear who that will be. Also on the card is Jahfarr Wilnis against Jamal Ben Saddik. One would have to think that someone is in line for a shot at Rico at some point and that somewhere along the line the division will sort itself out, but perhaps not yet. Jamal Ben Saddik beat contender Ismael Londt and Wilnis just lost in a tournament to Mladen Brestovac before Brestovac lost to Adegbuyi.

The SuperFight Series delivers, as always, with Sitthichai looking to defend his Lightweight Championship title against Dylan Salvador. What makes this more interesting? Dylan Salvador has a win over Sitthichai. Marat Grigorian fights Hysni Beqiri, Hesdy Gerges against Chi Lewis-Parry and Karim Benmansour fights Harut Grigorian to round out the card.

Go Inside GLORY 39 Fight Week Plus a Heated Weigh-In Video

  • Published in Glory

GLORY 39 is tomorrow in the afternoon, live from Brussels, Belgium. The event is headlined by Cedric Doumbe looking to finally chalk up a win over career-rival Yoann Kongolo and defend his GLORY Welterweight Championship for the first time. This time they have five rounds to work and it isn't in front of a hometown crowd for Kongolo, making this a must-see fight between two of the very best at Welterweight. In the lead-up to that, GLORY have released their usual Inside GLORY videos and they are pretty fun this time out, especially the second part with Chi Lewis-Parry where he recounts a drunken leg-kicking contest involving Todd Grisham, James Law and the GLORY crew. 

Inside GLORY

Then, of course, come the weigh-ins. Everyone weighed in, there were staredowns, you know the drill. Of course, this features Cedric Doumbe, who is a master at getting into his opponents' heads and, well, watch for yourself. It gets a bit heated.
