GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven is Considering a Full-Time Move to MMA

The UFC is in the Netherlands for an event there and that means that the MMA media world has also made its presence shown. MMAJunkie's Mike Bohn is over in the Netherlands posted this video today where he spoke with current GLORY champion Rico Verhoeven.

While there will be some who swarm on the headlines for this that "Rico Verhoeven is going to switch to MMA," nothing is a done deal quite yet. Verhoeven speaks about the possibilities open to him, including saying that Bellator has already expressed interest in his services and that WSOF seems interested. He talks about being excited about MMA because it's so new to him still and he feels that he has a lot to offer. What he does mention is that while his current GLORY deal has ended, there is still a three month negotiation period that they are in the midst of and that he's not technically a free agent until the end of that period. Verhoeven claims that it was a good offer, although he seems to want a bit more.

Having multiple opportunities available to top athletes like Verhoeven is important because it allows for them to have leverage in contract situations. Where Verhoeven ends up is ultimately in his control right now and while he seems interested in the idea of fighting for the UFC, it's unlikely that they make a move for him just yet. Time will only tell where Verhoeven ends up, but my gut tells me that he's not done kickboxing just yet.

As for the Bellator offer? Our bud Stets reached out to Bellator and they denied any sort of offer being made to Verhoeven. 

So time will tell. [source]


GLORY 31 Card Updated: Ismael Londt vs. Hesdy Gerges

GLORY released further details on GLORY 31 Amsterdam on Saturday, June 25th. We already knew that Robin van Roosmalen would be defending his GLORY Lightweight Championship against Sitthichai and that there would be a GLORY Welterweight tournament featuring Murthel Groenhart and Karim Benmansour. Now we know more, a lot more. Groenhart will square off against Karim Benmansour in the first round of the tournament while on the other side of the bracket Yoann Kongolo will take on Harut Grigorian. 

The other fight of note is the co-headline bout where Hesdy Gerges returns to the GLORY ring after a lengthy legal battle over an alleged drug trafficking incident. Gerges has been cleared of these charges and is a free man, so GLORY is looking to quickly bring one of the best heavyweights in the world back into the fold by having him square off against GLORY's top heavyweight contender in Ismael Londt. It's interesting to note that Londt will fight Gerges here and not wait for a shot at Verhoeven.
