GLORY of course is having a huge card on May 26 in Stockholm, Sweden with the "First 16" of their 70kg tournament as well as some big super fights. One fighter that has been slated for the card for a while is Gokhan Saki, but up to now, he hadn't gotten an opponent.

It turns out, Gokhan Saki will be fighting Carter Williams, the American K-1 and international kickboxing veteran. While not a top opponent, Saki can stay busy in his first fight back after losing to Badr Hari on January 28. Saki will probably be in GLORY's heavyweight tournament later this year so and I wouldn't expect him to take big fights until then.

Despite being around for what seems like a really long time, Carter Williams is only 32 years old. The past few years haven't gone that great for him, with many losses in 2010 and 2011. He did notch a win over Marian Iordan at a SuperKombat card last year, though.

The card on May 26 is looking to be really stacked, and it takes place just a day before K-1 on May 27. We should be in for a great weekend of kickboxing when that weekend rolls around.
