GLORY 17 Los Angeles Featuring PPV Tournament

Glory 17

When it comes to GLORY events, semantics are vital. Numbered GLORY events have been airing on Spike TV and television around the world while the undercards are the GLORY SuperFight Series. When it comes to GLORY 17 Los Angeles things are going to be a little bit different. GLORY 17 Los Angeles will air on Spike TV, like usual, but this time around that will not be the main attraction. Oh no.

The main attraction?

The GLORY Last Man Standing Middleweight tournament on PPV. We told you that GLORY PPV was coming and here it is. This will be an 8-man tournament, which GLORY has announced six of the names thus far. Those names are as follows; Joe Schilling, Simon Marcus, Alex Pereira, Bogdan Stoica, Melvin Manhoef and Wayne Barrett. The big surprise is the inclusion of Simon Marcus, who has a long history with GLORY 10 Middleweight tournament winner Joe Schilling. The new names are Bogdan Stoica, brother of Andrei Stoica and Melvin Manhoef. We all know Melvin.

This is a huge deal, obviously, we'll have more information when it becomes available.

GLORY Announces GLORY 17 Los Angeles

GLORY

This is, of course, why rumors are rumors. GLORY has announced GLORY 17 Los Angeles today. GLORY 17 Los Angeles is scheduled for June 21st at the Forum in Inglewood, California. No bouts have been announced just yet, but tickets are on sale starting on April 16th at the box office or ticketmaster.com.

This will be GLORY's first trip back to Los Angeles since GLORY 10 last year, which saw Joe Schilling conquer the Middleweight division in the Middleweight tournament, including a big win over Artem Levin. If I were a betting man I'd probably bet some money on Joe Schilling being on that card, but that is of course nothing official.
