Danyo Ilunga in Against Mourad Bouzidi at GLORY 26 SuperFight Series

  • Published in Glory

At the GLORY 26 SuperFight Series on December 4th in Amsterdam the main event was originally slated to be a Heavyweight showdown between Mourad Bouzidi and Michael Duut, but today we learned that Duut will not be competing at GLORY 26 and in his stead will be top Light Heavyweight contender Danyo Ilunga. This bout will be contested at Light Heavyweight and is coming hot off of the heels of Ilunga's hotly contested bout with Artem Vakhitov that saw back-and-forth action and Vakhitov just narrowly walking away with the decision.

Bouzidi has been angling for a title shot for a while and a win over Ilunga here could be what he needs to break into that top echelon of the Light Heavyweight division. For Ilunga he'll be looking to get back on the winning track after the loss to Vakhitov and to turn his rather disappointing 2015 around with his second win over the year.

Michael Duut and Danyo Ilunga Beat The Snot Out of Each Other In Extra Round Thriller

  • Published in Glory

After what has been a rather tepid night of fights in Germany for GLORY, the main event of the GLORY SuperFight Series delivered in a huge way. In a rematch between Danyo Ilunga and Michael Duut both men decided to go all-out and beat the ever-living snot out of each other. While the term is thrown out a bit too often, this could easily be considered the fight of the year by most metrics.

While the fight wasn't a marvel of technical acumen and precision, it was a fight that helped to encapsulate all of the great things about kickboxing. Duut went out there looking to entertain and Ilunga was swiftly swept up into that vortex of violence, with both men trading downs throughout the fight leading to a majority draw. That meant extra round. 

Extra violence. 

The extension round went as the rest of the fight did; both men trading blows, wobbling each other and making roaring come backs before Duut finally dropped Ilunga with just seconds left to go. Ilunga was able to fight back to his feet, but that was enough to seal the deal for Duut and to even up the series between the two fighters at one win apiece. If you missed it, the fight can be viewed on UFC Fight Pass.
