One of the more anticipated bouts at GLORY 55 would have to be GLORY Featherweight Champion Robin van Roosmalen squaring off against Petchpanomrung for the title in the main event. Sadly, that fight is no longer on the menu as GLORY announced this afternoon that Robin van Roosmalen has been forced to withdraw thanks to a shoulder injury while training. So once again an interim title will be set and once again Kevin Vannostrand will be involved, this time fighting Petchpanomrung for the Interim Featherweight Championship with the winner fighting van Roosmalen when he’s healthy again.
This leaves Massaro Glunder without an opponent just yet, with GLORY 55 right around the corner on July 20th. Below is the updated fight card for GLORY 55 and the GLORY 55 SuperFight Series. GLORY 55 is set to air live on Friday night, July 20th on ESPNews in the United States, while GLORY 55 SuperFight Series will air live on UFC Fight Pass. Further listings can be found at GLORY’s website.
