If there were two Americans who have made a huge splash in GLORY over the past few months, hell, in the same division even, it would be Joe Schilling and Wayne Barrett. Schilling is, of course, the winner of the GLORY 10 Middleweight tournament, while Barrett was featured in a showcase bout on the same event. Both guys are proud to fly the American flag in elite Kickboxing at the weight class and will meet in the ring at GLORY 12 in the main event.
We've been sitting on this one for a while, as when we spoke with Schilling it was still not a done deal yet with the ink dried, but it looks like everything is set to go now as GLORY announced it on their official Facebook. Barrett is still relatively inexperienced when it comes to the Kickfighting sport variety, while Schilling is a seasoned pro and easily can be seen as one of the top fighters in his weight class, regardless of rankings. This is most definitely a step up for Barrett and will be a good test for Schilling.
