Well, the rumors have been swirling throughout this week since GLORY 3 Rome on what would happen with GLORY 4 Tokyo - Grand Slam. We finally have some concrete information from GLORY's press conference that just happened in Tokyo.
GLORY 4 Tokyo will be moved from its original date of December 2 and will be combined with the DREAM 18 event on December 31. This includes the Grand Slam tournament, which is a 16 man, one night, heavyweight tournament.
Details from the press conference include that the show will be around seven hours and will feature 15 GLORY kickboxing fights and 7-9 DREAM MMA fights. The event will be broadcasted on SkyPerfectTV in Japan, although the format in which it will be broadcasted has not been decided on yet. For the North American broadcast, Marcus Luer is meeting with broadcasters next week and says that GLORY is vigorously pursuing a wide international broadcast of the event.
