GLORY Announces GLORY 20 Dubai for April 3rd

For any major combat sports organization having a clear line-up of events is always the best way to keep fans engaged and ready for more. The key is to not overstimulate your audience but to keep them engaged and excited about what you have to offer. GLORY is doing exactly that with the announcement of GLORY 20 Dubai, which is set to take place in the United Arab Emirates on April 3rd. 

The event will be headlined by the long-awaited GLORY Featherweight Championship bout between Canadian Gabriel Varga and Dutch-Moroccan brawler Mosab Amrani. The card will also mark the return of former UFC fighter Pat "HD" Barry who will be squaring off against the always-dangerous Mourad Bouzidi in a Heavyweight bout.

In keeping with tradition, there will be a Contender's tournament on the card as well, this one being in the stacked Middleweight division. Jason Wilnis will take on the uber-tough Alex Pereira while Wayne Barrett will test his mettle against muay thai standout Simon Marcus. 

Tickets will go on sale on February 1st for those in the area or planning to attend and the event will be airing on Spike TV.

GLORY Adds Two Big Fights to GLORY 19 SuperFight Series Card

If there was ever really one big thing that depressed me about GLORY events it is that there is no way to see the GLORY SuperFight Series fights live. That really isn't a terrible problem to have, all things considered. It's still a bummer none-the-less, especially in the age of MMA promotions offering streams of prelims. 

GLORY has announced two interesting fights for the GLORY 19 SuperFight Series undercard that will have kickboxing fans even more excited for the upcoming event. The first is 70kg Canadian sensation Josh Jauncey against Germany's Max Baumert in what should be an explosive battle. Jauncey has two wins under the GLORY banner thus far, a decision win over Warren Stevelmans and a knockout over Jae Gil Noh. Baumert has fought once for GLORY, a win over Ismail Uzuner at GLORY 6.

The other fight -- and this is a big one -- is GLORY 12 Lightweight Champion Andy Ristie taking on Australian brawler Steve Moxon. Both men are well-known at this point and one would have to favor Ristie going into this fight, but Moxon is hungry and coming off of a big win over Aikpracha from Kunlun earlier this month.

Mike Zambidis to Defend SuperKombat Title Plus More SK 2015 Details

Mike Zambidis captured the SuperKombat Middleweight Championship back in August of 2013 against Harun Kina in Romania and now in January he is set to defend that title for the very first time in a return match. At an Iron Challenge 2015 event in Greece Zambidis is set to defend that title against Kina. If you are wondering why it isn't on a SuperKombat card proper, that's because 2015 will be the year that SuperKombat begins licensing out their brand to interested partners.

Previously they would license out tryout events, but starting this year they will also license out Elimination and World Title fights. The SuperKombat season begins on March 7th with their first event of this season, but look for more events held around the world with fights that impact the world of SuperKombat throughout the year. We'll have more on SuperKombat and Mike Zambidis when it's available.

Superbank Bests Muangthai in Rajadamnern Battle Between Two of Muay Thai’s Brightest Stars

Superbank Sakchaichode cleared up the recent end of year Muay Thai awards and the 20 year old was up against his closest rival for most of them when he faced Muangthai Sor Boongium at Rajadamnern in the first big show of 2014

Superbank appeared to effortlessly control the fight which headlined a One Songchai card, keeping Muangthai at bay with teeps and knees and repeatedly sweeping him to the ground in the third round to soar ahead on the score cards.

Muangthai needed a big comeback in the fourth but found himself being swept yet again when he tried to line up a straight knee with Superbank timing it to perfection to kick away his standing leg and put him on his backside.

Muangthai returned the favour moments later but was unable to mount any effective offence as Superbank frustrated him with a masterful defensive display, cruising through the final three minutes to take a clear cut decision win.

Pakorn PKSaenchaimuaythaigym is the reigning Lumpinee 135 lbs champion and one of the biggest draws in Muay Thai at the moment and was taking on Auisiewpor Sujibamikiew who might not enjoy such a stellar reputation but was given a 5 lbs weight advantage.

Pakorn made light of the size difference to land the harder shots throughout the fight, scoring with kicks and knees more consistently than his opponent who struggled to land anything solid enough to turn the contest around and conceded defeat before the end of the final round.

It was also a good night for Pakorn’s team mates at PKSaenchaimuaythaigym with Prajanchay stopping Lamnampong Noomjeantawanna in the fourth round and Phichitchai finishing Yodsenchuang Chanaidonmuang in the third.

Sangmanee Sor Tienpo was supposed to be returning to Rajadamnern for the first time since getting poisoned last year but the teenager’s proposed fight with Petchlamsin Sorkor Sungaigym fell through.
