Lion Fight 10 was the big story of this weekend in the world of Kickboxing and Muay Thai in the Western world, but there have been some interesting things going on in the world of Kickboxing of late, namely centered around GLORY's big push into the United States. There has been talk for a while now about some fighters and even gyms either moving over to the United States or having some gyms open "branches" here in the United States. This could be the beginning of something much bigger here, as there has been confirmation of Murthel Groenhart training in Florida with the Jaco Fight Team/Blackzilians in preparation for his GLORY 10 fight against Davit Kiria.
This is, what we assume to be, the tip of the iceberg for this sort of stuff. We've heard rumors of a lot more going on, with GLORY possibly helping fighters to find gyms in the United States to train at, as well as some gyms looking to move some operations to the United States. This means we can expect a lot more going on here in the US over the next few months.
