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

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.

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.

K-1 Japan Announces 70kg Tournament

Don't call it K-1 MAX, because K-1 Japan has an upcoming 70kg tournament and it's being called Super Welterweight. Oh yeah, and it's a pretty damned awesome tournament as well. Scheduled for June 18th in the Saitama Super Arena's smaller hall, featuring some recognizable names from the world of 70kg kickboxing with, of course, the K-1 Japan flair.

K-1 Japan has found a niche for themselves with the lighter (sub-70kg) weight classes of late, but their 70kg division has been just as good. That's tough to imagine, especially with 70kg being one of the most competitive and talent-filled in the world. The tournament has been broken down like this thus far; 

Yasuhiro Kido vs Jordan Watson

Hirono Yu vs Sanny Dahlbeck

Hiroki Nakajima vs Chingiz Allazov

Hinata Watanabe vs Jordann Pikeur

Recognizable names from both Japan and internationally, with every fight really awesome in its own way. Yasuhiro Kido against Jordan Watson should be a great fight, Yu against Dahlbeck should be another chance for Dahlbeck to prove to the world that GLORY let him go far too soon, Nakajima against Allazov is perhaps the best fight in the tournament and the return of HINATA to K-1 against the tough Jordann Pikeur.
