Today Glory Sports International put out a press release announcing the formation of a new independent governing body, the Glory World Federation (GWF). This governing body will oversee future GLORY events.
The GWF will be a non-profit organization composed of "respected persons from the global fight community." Providing regulation for future GLORY events, fighters can appeal against suspensions, controversial decisions or other things of that nature. Any fighter that fights on a GLORY card can register with the GWF and be guaranteed a fair and impartial hearing.
GLORY wants transparency within their organization and hopes that the GWF will be like FIFA. They also want to show that by instituting the GWF that it doesn't matter if a fighter is with Golden Glory or connected to them, making all registered fighters equal. The GWF will represent the rights of the fighters.
The staff is still being finalized but in the press release, it was hinted that the GWF will be chaired by "an iconic figure from the world of professional fighting, somebody with a wealth of experience, in competing, coaching or both."
