Cosmo Alexandre Out Of Glory This Saturday, David Kyria Replaces Him

  • Written by Rian Scalia

Glory's stacked card in Stockholm, Sweden on this Saturday, May 26 has had a few late changes, and we learned of one today.

Cosmo Alexandre is out of his scheduled 70kg tournament Final 16 fight with Kem Sitsongpeenong. We don't know why he's out yet but he did fight on May 4 in MMA for Bellator, picking up a unanimous decision over Lowawn-T Nelson. It could either be injury from that fight or what happened to Tie Yinghua, who was also scheduled to be in the tournament against Dennis Schneidmiller but couldn't fight due to visa issues and was replaced by Tim Thomas.

David Kyria will take Cosmo's place. Kyria has fought for Glory before, most notably losing to Robin van Roosmalen in 2011 and to Nieky Holzken this past March. He's a decent fighter that was able to put up a fight against two very good fighters in Robin and Holzken, but he's facing Kem Sitsongpeenong so he has a very tough task ahead of him. Kyria is part of Golden Glory and was probably one of the easier fighters to call up on short notice.
