GLORY 33 Draws 517,000 Viewers Live on ESPN2

GLORY's run on ESPN has most been live on ESPN3 and replayed on ESPN2 some time in the near future. That has been anywhere from a day to two days to two weeks, depending on ESPN's scheduling. On Friday night for GLORY 33, ESPN2 aired the event live. Well, there is a caveat to that, because the college football game between Louisville and Syracuse ran over and GLORY 33 was pushed to ESPNews until it was over.

That left about an hour and fifteen minutes for GLORY 33 on ESPN2 and the numbers that they pulled were the best that we've seen in quite a while with 517,000 live viewers. That means that live viewers got to see Rico Verhoeven crush Anderson Silva and Matt Embree look like a million bucks. That's not a bad way to snag viewers.

K-1 WORLD GP 60kgs Tournament Fight Card

K-1 WGP 2016 60kgs Tournament takes place this weekend September 19th in Tokyo Japan at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium. This will as usual be an am

azing card with an 8-man tournament at 60kgs where there is a high possibility that the Urabe brothers are going to fight in the finals again. As hard as it is for me to watch two brothers fight (they have already fought each other multiple times) they do make an exciting fight everytime. Also Kaew Weerasakreck will be defending his 65kgs belt against Hideaki Yamazaki. The last time they fought was in 2014 and Kaew won by decision but Yamazaki has got a lot better so this should be interesting.

Yao Ming's Investment Firm Acquires Strategic Stake in GLORY

Following an exciting outing at GLORY 33, it was announced today that former NBA star, Yao Ming, through his investment firm Yao Capitol, has purchased a strategic stake in GLORY kickboxing. 

In a press release issued this afternoon by GLORY, they announced that Yao Capitol along with Liberty Global, have concluded a strategic investment in the kickboxing company. The move is seen as GLORY has been attempting to make further strides in not only the US market, but the Asian market as well. GLORY will increase the number of shows that they produce in 2017 to a whopping 18 with shows scheduled in Latin America and Asia. On top of that, GLORY will be launching reality television programming in the near future and will be launching a joint venture with Yao Ming in China while looking to enter the Chinese market.

The Chinese market has been growing rapidly, with promotion like Kunlun, Hero Legends, EM Legend, WLF and more seeing growth in China over the past few years. Teaming with a Chinese superstar like Yao Ming to enter the market seems like a sound strategy, as opposed to coming in as outsiders.
