Melvin Manhoef vs. Filip Verlinden Announced for GLORY Last Man Standing

  • Published in Glory

First off, don't forget that this is the last week to get your questions in for Melvin Manhoef to possibly win some GLORY swag. Check out the thread over here

Today GLORY announced the first official matchup in the GLORY Last Man Standing Middleweight Tournament. Last Man Standing will be on PPV on June 21st directly following GLORY 17 on Spike TV. The first match announced is between Melvin Manhoef and Filip Verlinden. It's an interesting bout between two guys who have both fight as high as Heavyweight and will now be fighting at a weight class that suits them better. 

Melvin Manhoef has not competed in Kickboxing as much over the past few years, but will finally make his GLORY debut. Verlinden on the other hand has competed in GLORY's Heavyweight Grand Slam as well as GLORY's Light Heavyweight tournament back at GLORY 9, this being his third GLORY tournament in a new weight class. This should be a great fight between a more technical-minded Verlinden and a crazy brawler like Manhoef.
