As we reported earlier on, GLORY had added Heavyweights Ben Edwards and Hesdy Gerges to their rankings and roster a while ago, which meant that them fighting for the organization was imminent. Well, it looks like they've finally made the official announcement and included a surprise in the mix as well of former DREAM and Strikeforce Lightweight JZ Cavalcante signing with the organization as well. JZ currently competes with World Series of Fighting, but has fought Kickboxing in the past, acquiring an 0-2 record in fights with Masato and Shootboxing's Hiroki Shishido.
Cavalcante makes for an interesting signing as he's been struggling in his MMA career since his knee surgery a while back, but a revival in the GLORY ring could be just what he ordered. The addition of Gerges and Edwards has been noted and only helps to bolster GLORY's already huge Heavyweight roster.
