GLORY 28 ESPN Ratings See Dip Thanks to NCAA Action

Do you have March Madness? I sure know that I don't, but I'm weird and don't really follow sports outside of ones where people punch and kick each other, so your mileage may vary. What I do know is that a lot of people get pretty obsessed with college basketball around this time of year and that much was for certain this past weekend when ESPN2 found a spot for GLORY 28 at 9pm eastern on Sunday. 

Weeks after the event happened and there was an ESPN3 live stream we finally got a basic cable airing of GLORY 28 and the ratings weren't spectacular. Then again, the competition was a NCAA showdown between Notre Dame and North Carolina which pulled in over 10 million viewers. A lot of factors went into the ratings for GLORY 28 coming in at 133,000 this time around and honestly, I'm not concerned. There was just a new deal announced between the two and we can look forward to some events even airing live on ESPN2. [source]

Jordan Watson Out, Ravy Brunow in Against Giorgio Petrosyan on April 16th

At the big Oktagon/Bellator super show on April 16th Giorgio Petrosyan is set to put his skills on display for the world. His opponent has changed already, leaving us with UK muay thai specialist Jordan Watson, but after his last bout contested for Yokkao it looks like Watson won't be prepared for Petrosyan. This left promoters in a lurch heading into the Venum Victory World Series portion of the card, with Giorgio Petrosyan's fight as the centerpiece of the entire event for many. 

Organizer Carlo di Blasi began searching for a formidable opponent and went to GLORY matchmaker Cor Hemmers for advice, Hemmers proposing Brazilian standout Ravy Brunow. Ravy Brunow has been making waves in Brazil for a while now under the WGP banner, recently competing at WGP 28 in December, where he defended the 71.8kg title. He should make for an interesting opponent for Petrosyan.
