GLORY Announces Cards For GLORY Collision and GLORY 36

On December 10th GLORY will put forth their biggest show to date, the clash between GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven and former K-1 superstar Badr Hari. What's interesting is that this will be three shows across three different platforms. GLORY 36 will air live on ESPN3, GLORY 36 SuperFight Series will air live on UFC Fight Pass and will be followed by GLORY Collision via UFC.tv iPPV. 

GLORY 36 itself is a fascinating card in a lot of ways, with the GLORY Lightweight title on the line between Sitthichai and Marat Grigorian, Mosab Amrani fighting Fabio Pinca at Featherweight and a Lightweight Contender's tournament featuring some new names like Yodkhunpon against Hysni Beqiri and the return of a former champion in Davit Kiria against Anatoly Moiseev. The SuperFight Series features the semi-finals of the year-long Super Bantamweight Grand Prix, with Isis Verbeek taking on Amel Dehby and Tiffany van Soest against Jessica Gladstone. Danyo Ilunga fights Michael Duut and Harut Grigorian fights Danijel Solaaja to round out the SuperFight Series.

Collision itself is an interesting card, with the Super Bantamweight finals opening the card, then Ismael Londt fighting Jamal Ben Saddik. Nieky Holzken looks to defend his GLORY Welterweight Championship against the very tough Cedric Doumbe and then, of course, the main event.

Former GLORY Welterweight Champion Marc de Bonte is Missing in the Netherlands

In what has been the most heartbreaking ongoing story of the weekend, former GLORY Welterweight Champion Marc de Bonte has been missing since late Friday night in Best, Netherlands. The reports claim that he had worked out at the gym, had a drink with friends and was en route to see his girlfriend but never appeared. There has been no word from de Bonte since then and officials have been searching for him all weekend.

The latest is that his car was found abandoned in Best with no sign of de Bonte. 

De Bonte had recently returned to the sport of kickboxing after leaving to focus on boxing after his loss to Joseph Valtellini in GLORY, qualifying for Kunlun's -80kg tournament and moving on to the next round. By all means, de Bonte is a down-to-Earth guy and has always been a pleasure to talk to and interact with. We're hoping that there is word of his whereabouts soon and that he is safe.

The first bout between Buakaw Banchamek and Yi Long in China set records and helped to popularize the sport of kickboxing even further in China. So when WLF scheduled the rematch for this weekend everyone knew it would be a big deal. The fight went down and the ratings were apparently astronomical, with insane viewership.

As for the fight itself? Watch for yourself, but there is absolutely controversy over this one, with Yi Long walking away with the decision in his home country of China where he is a hero.

GLORY 35 Nice and SuperFight Series Live Results

GLORY 35 is going on now in Nice, France. An undisputed Light Heavyweight champion will be crowned here tonight. Follow us for all of the action, as well as on twitter at @LiverKickdotcom.

GLORY 35 NICE 

Light Heavyweight Title Headline Bout: Artem Vakhitov (R2 - TKO) Zack Mwekassa - These guys came here to fight, the first round featuring Vakhitov looking for the punches and low kicks -- which have always worked against Mwekassa -- but Mwekassa has been training with Nick Hemmers and is utilizing that Dutch style a bit more with the defense and mixing in the kicks. Every Mwekassa punch that lands makes this sickening thud. Ouch. Mwekassa really looks more complete and in round two it showed, but Vakhitov is slick. He landed a few big straights that snuck through and Mwekassa went down. Not once, not twice, but three times before the fight was waved off. Wow.

Heavyweight Contender Tournament Final: Benjamin Adegbuyi (R3 - Dec) Mladen Brestovac - Benny should be more tired than Brestovac, but he looks like a new fighter tonight. Brestovac was going for the kill with the head kick in the first round, but Benny was applying pressure and landing his big hand combinations. Round two saw more aggression from Adegbuyi while Brestovac was working his kicks to no real avail. The third round was the power and aggression of Benny against the heart and determination of Brestovac. Really good showing for both men.

Light Heavyweight Co-Headline Bout: Pavel Zhuravlev (R1 - TKO) Zinedine Hameur-Lain - Pavel Zhuravlev is an absolute monster. He just swarmed and when he smelled blood in the water he went for the kill. Amazing performance.

Heavyweight Contender Tournament Bout: Mladen Brestovac (R1 - KO) Jahfarr Wilnis  -  Here we go again. Wilnis was the aggressor throughout the round, then Brestovac with the same kick that got him the win last time connected and Wilnis froze before taking a brutal right hand that put him down and out. Poor Wilnis.

Heavyweight Contender Tournament Bout: Benjamin Adegbuyi (R3 - Decision) Hesdy Gerges - It's hard not to love both of these guys. Interesting first round that saw Benny walk Gerges down. Gerges has his high guard and tight basics, but Benny hits very, very hard, even if he's hitting gloves. The second round saw Gerges on the offensive more, while still being defensive. Both men were throwing solid combos and defending a lot, making it tough to say who won, but Gerges walking down Benny perhaps gave him an edge in R2. The third was close, but Benny has really shored up his style by training with Dennis Krauweel, being a bit more technical. He landed a few big shots, which should give him an edge.

GLORY 35 SUPERFIGHT SERIES 

Heavyweight Bout: Nicolas Wamba (R3 - Dec) Nordine Mahieddine - These two are looking to rip each other's heads off, but not having much luck with it. Wamba is controlling the ring and perhaps landing the better strikes in this fight. Neither man is having much luck.

Welterweight Bout: Karim Benmansour (R3 - Split Dec) Eyevan Danenberg - This has been an interesting fight, a lot of clinching and the ref keeps shouting "final warning" but not actually doing anything. There isn't a lot to say about this fight. They flailed strikes at each other, sometimes they landed, but this was the sort of fight that you find yourself gazing out the window during and saying, "oh wait, this is a fight."

Super Bantamweight Bout: Amel Dehby (R3 - Dec) Jiwaen Lee - First round saw Lee applying pressure but Dehby landing some solid counter strikes. The second saw Dehby come alive, much to the adoration of the local Nice crowd. Round three saw a lot of action from Dehby, even going for big moves like a spinning backfist, much to her local crowd's delight.

Lightweight Bout: Christian Baya (R3 - Dec) Josh Jauncey  - First round was interesting, with Baya applying a lot of pressure, but not landing a lot of shots. A lot of feeling out on both parts, but Josh started to open up later on in the round. The second round was interesting, as Jauncey came out aggressive with low kicks and hand combinations. Baya was able to find his right hook a few times, but it was all Jauncey until this left uppercut landed and wobbled Josh. Baya swarmed and after a few vicious flurries Jauncey fell to his knees. Jauncey was able to get back up, but the damage was done. The third round saw Jauncey come out with an understanding that he needed to do something big and he did. Finally right before the bell he landed a jumping knee that stunned Baya in the corner, he swarmed but Baya was able to hold out for the bell. Wow. Incredible fight. The judges give it to Baya and really, it seemed like it should've been a draw, but the first round was so close. Great fight, both men should be proud.

Featherweight Bout: Petpanomrung Kiatmoo9 (R3 - Dec) Stanislav Renita 

Featherweight Bout: Cedric Castaigna (R3 - Dec) Vang Moua
