Ratings Up for GLORY 30 on ESPN2

After a few disappointing performances for GLORY replays on ESPN2, GLORY 30 came back with stronger numbers. Maybe, in part, thanks to the appearance on ESPN SportsCenter late in the week featuring CEO Jon J. Franklin, Simon Marcus, Dustin Jacoby and Tiffany van Soest. Regardless, GLORY 30 aired on Sunday evening and the numbers were up. 

GLORY 30 on ESPN2 averaged 209,000 viewers at a 9pm time slot for the welterweight tournament, the incredible headkick knockout from Marat Grigorian and Simon Marcus defending his GLORY Middleweight Championship against Dustin Jacoby. [source]

Badr Hari Released on Bail After Weekend Arrest in Morocco

While initial reports as to the situation with Badr Hari in Morocco were foggy at best, further information was released today by the press. Badr Hari was indeed arrested on this weekend in Morocco at the Casablanca airport, but he was not flying to Brussels, instead he was flying from Brussels and was detained upon landing in his home country. The reason behind the arrest was the assault in Marrakesh the previous month. The arrest also happened on Saturday, not Thursday.

Hari has been released on bail and it looks like the kickboxing bad boy has indeed found himself in trouble yet again, contrary to friends and fans persistence that the media was somehow trying to make Hari look bad yet again.

GLORY 32 Virginia Featuring Adamchuk vs. Varga II

GLORY continues to march forward with their 2016, while GLORY 31 might be the next show, GLORY 32 takes place on July 22nd in Virginia, featuring a GLORY Featherweight Championship rematch between the new champion Serhiy Adamchuk and former champion Gabriel Varga. Varga lost the title at GLORY 25 to Adamchuk in what was a closely-contested bout that saw its fair share of controversy. Hopefully the rematch between the two is a bit cleaner when it comes to the action.

Varga will definitely be motivated to take his title back while Adamchuk is coming off of a defense of his title over Mosab Amrani at GLORY 28 and stepping in on late notice to fight Mohammed El Mir at Lightweight at GLORY 29 just one month later.
