Peter Aerts vs. Dewey Cooper Featured on Global FC Card

GFC

The big story for many on the upcoming Global FC event is that Badr Hari will be fighting, but an interesting bit of information came out last week, with that being that Peter Aerts was set to fight Dewey Cooper on the event. I'll make this clear; I'm a huge Peter Aerts fan, always have been, always will be, and I want Peter Aerts to retire. I want Peter Aerts to enjoy his family, spend time with his children, run his gym, to live a long, healthy life.

That being said, a fight against Dewey Cooper seems about right for the time being. Dewey Cooper is an American fighter who has had a good deal of success here in the United States and abroad, but never was able to break through into that top echelon of fighters. Dewey Cooper is a fighter that can absolutely give Peter Aerts trouble, but is not a guy that I'm concerned about giving Aerts any sort of crazy concussion or really hurting Aerts. That isn't to say that Cooper can't win, because he could and he might, this is a pretty even fight. But, you know, Cooper is not Jamal Ben Saddik.

Here's a look at the rest of the card thus far.

  • Kamran Morovati vs. Darco Jeremic
  • Luke Jumeau vs. Hossein Mollamahdi
  • Gokhan Turkyilmaz vs. Voughn Donayre
  • Abbas Mollamahdi vs. Erkan Varol
  • Brian Douwes vs. Srdjan Seles
  • Singh Jaideep vs. Fatih Ulusoy
  • Peter Aerts vs. Dewey Cooper
  • Tournament: Arnold Oborotov vs. Peter Graham
  • Tournament:Badr Hari vs. Stefan Leko

Global FC 3 Immediately Updates Tournament: Badr Hari, Graham, Oborotov and Leko

GFC

Now that is some quick turnaround. Last night at about 1:30am I received a press release announcing Global FC 3, then just hours later they announced their full line-up for their tournament. It turns out that Peter Aerts is not participating in the tournament, instead he will be featured on the card, as will American Dewey Cooper. So the question arises of who is in this tournament?

Right now the names are Badr Hari, Peter Graham, Arnold Oborotov and Stefan Leko. Definitely an eclectic mix here, with Peter Graham fighting MMA of late in Bellator, Oborotov has been relatively quiet after getting his hype train derailed by Jarrell Miller and Andrei Stoica and Stefan Leko is, well, Stefan Leko. Leko's career has had a few interesting twists and turns, but it is safe to say that Stefan Leko's time at the top has come and gone.

Badr Hari, Peter Aerts and Peter Graham Participating in Global FC 3 on May 29th

Badr Hari

This kind of came out of nowhere and is a bit strange.

On May 29th in Dubai an event is happening, called Global FC 3, which will feature a one night, four man Kickboxing tournament. The winner of the tournament will take home 1 million UAE dirhams (approximately $272,000 USD). The participants thus far are strange, to say the least. Announced for the card are Badr Hari, Peter Graham and Peter Aerts. The other big name announced via a press release was ring announcer Michael Buffer.

When we know more about this we will be sure to report on it.
