Today GLORY released the full fight card from GLORY 57 Shenzen, which features a pretty impressive eight-man lightweight tournament featuring all Chinese talent that spans the prelims and SuperFight Series. The show’s headliner is a GLORY Lightweight Championship bout between Marat Grigorian and champion Sitthichai, in yet another meeting between the two men. Has Marat grown enough to be able to take Sitthichai out for good? That’s the question and the recent victories that Grigorian holds may be the key to him finally usurping the king of the division.
The card also features what should be a fun bout between Asa Ten Pow and Xuhang Xie, Chenglong Zhang against Nafi Bilalovski, Khaial Dzhaniev against Julio Lobo and Kaiyin Zhang against an unknown opponent. The SuperFight Series features the final four of the tournament as well as Zinedine Hameur-Lain in action. This card is clearly about building up stars in China for the promotion while still showcasing international talent.
GLORY 57 Shenzen goes down on August 25th.
