Glory 34 Denver: Live Results

Glory 34 is starting in just under 30 mins on UFC fight pass for the super fight series and then over to eversport.tv or ESPN3 at midnight ET for the main card. I have a strong feeling this is going to be a night of exciting fights and probably one of the best cards in America since Glory's 8-man tournament in LA. For anyone that misses it, the show will replay on Sunday at 7pm ET on ESPN2 or we have the results for you fight here.

GLORY 34 DENVER RESULTS

Welterweight Title: Nieky Holzken def. Murthel Groenhart by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Feeling out round for the most part until the last minute of the round, Murthel landing nice jabs and a nice uppercut through the round while Holzken is landing hard inside leg kicks and looking busier than his usual first round. Round 2: All Holzken this round landing lots and lots of low kicks which are taking their toll now. Round 3: More of the same from Holzken hes running away with this fight. Murthel is not throwing enough and standing around too much to get low kicked. This is a different Holzken that we have seen in the past 2 years, no more standing around covering up, hes moving and kicking much more. Round 4: Closer round with Groenhart starting to go for broke, nothing landing clean though but Nieky keeps just losing his balance and getting up very slowly but that's been happening for the past 3 rounds. Round 5: Great round for Groenhart but it seems like too little too late he sat back too many rounds in the beginning of the fight, he landed lots of punches and some hard knees to the body but couldn't put hurt Nieky enough to drop him.

Middleweight Co-Headline Bout: Israel Adesanya  def. Yousri Belgaroui by Split Dec- Round 1: Israel looking calm slipping punches and trying to counter but not landing too many clean strikes but still lands more than Belgaroui who is missing a lot. Round 2: Emotions getting to Israel a bit making him stand and trade instead of picking Belgaroui off like the first round allowing himself to be hit more, very close round. Round 3: Ugh, another close round Israel landing the cleaner, harder shots but Belgaroui throwing more and landing more little shots, hard fight to judge.

Simon Marcus def. Dustin Jacoby by TKO Rd 1 (doctor stoppage) - Round 1: Great round for Jacoby, countering kicks with his front kick (teep) and landing nice punches but Marcus lands a hard knee and hurts Jacoby right at the end of the round. Doctor ends up stopping the right before the 2nd round due to Jacoby having an injured (possibly broken) right arm.

Middleweight Tournament Semi-Final: Israel Adesanya def. Robert Thomas by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Entertaining first feel out round for the 2 fighters Israel wobbling Thomas once during the round with a right hand giving him the round. Round 2: Hesitant Thomas ends up walking into a really hard left knee to the body and gets an 8 count. Israel didn't push too hard to finish the fight though so Thomas makes it through. Round 3: Again and all Adesanya fight controlling the fight and keeping Thomas guessing. With 15 seconds left in the round Israel lands a left high kick and drops Thomas for the 2nd time in the fight.

Middleweight  Tournament Semi-Final: Yousri Belgaroui def. Ariel Machado by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Even round, Belgaroui trying to keep distance while Machado landing good low kicks, fighters exchange some slightly angry nudges after the bell. Round 2: Machado slowing down a lot this round could be because he was a late replacement. Belgaroui trying many flying knees and just being the busier fighter but needs to start blocking low kicks. Round 3: Both guys looking extremely tired, I cant imagine either of them fighting again tonight. Machado landed all the more damaging shots this round Belgaroui took tired to throw any power at all. Lets hope for their sake there isn't an extra round.

GLORY 34 SUPERFIGHT SERIES RESULTS

Featherweight Title: Robin van Roosmalen def. Gabriel Varga by TKO Rd 4 (corner stoppage) - Round 1: Varga looking great with his hands keeping his punches long but still ends the round with a cut over the right eye and Robin with blood coming from his nose but varga still much more active, Vargas round. Round 2: Varga gets dropped with a left hook early and he stands up and tells the ref his corner had forgot to put his mouth guard in so that hook chipped his tooth. Robin drops Varga again with a combo, liver punch doing the most damage. Varga up at 8, not looking good but survives the round. Round 3: Another rough round for Varga getting pushed around the ring but Robin. Robin really looks strong at this weight and now hes landing a lot of leg kicks. Round 4: Robin again pressing Varga again and landing some hooks and seems to be gaining momentum. End of the round has Robin unleashing hell on Varga on the ropes, Varga is so tough and staying up. Vargas corner stops the fight after round 4.

Saulo Cavalari def. Brian Douwes by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Both guys throwing heavy hands all round but Cavalari landing hard leg kicks as well. Douwes clinching a little too much and getting warned by the ref. Round 2: All Cavalari low kicking a tiring Douwes to hell. Round 3: Both guys tiring and nothing significant this round but still Cavalari's round.

Thongchai Sitsongpeenong def. Casey Greene by KO Rd 2 - Round 1: One sided round with Sitsongpeenong landing many punches and hurting Greene twice even dropping him at the end of the round but the ref called no down. Round 2: Sitsongpeenong smashes Greene with a few more right hands and knocks him down for an 8 count. Greene stands up and is on terribly wobbly legs but the ref lets him keep going and take some unnecessary punishment as the commission is waving it off from outside the ring, Greene gets floored with another left hook. 

Richard Abraham def. Mike "Blood Diamond" Mathetha by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Awkward first round for both guys Mathetha landing some hard left kicks though. Round 2: was going well for Blood Diamond until Abraham landed a front kick to his knee and hyper extended Mathetha's knee now hes got a nasty limp. Round 3: Mathetha has ridiculous heart, his leg was buckling with every kick he threw but he kept kicking all round and firing back at Abraham. Abraham really should have been kicking more he may have been able to at least score a knockdown.

Justin Houghton def. Jonathon Wyderko by Split Dec - Round 1: pretty even round Houghton throwing many flying knees with no success but probably won the round on being active. Round 2: no more flying knees by Houghton and a much closer round but his chin is getting very high he needs to be careful. Round 3: Both too tired tired to throw anything of note not a very good round.

Richard Abraham's Sacrifices and Coincidences Leading to GLORY 34

What sacrifices are you willing to make to realize your dream? Would you pay to work in your chosen profession? Would you exercise diligence in your pursuit, following up on every possibility? Could you be a chameleon, assuming all the roles necessary to win the prize.  Maybe you wouldn't, but Richard Abraham has, does and will.  One of the newest faces in the welterweight division at Glory, Abraham comes to the ring with a professional record of 10-3-0, with three wins already with Glory.  He has trained extensively in Thailand and arrived back home ready to work.  Hailing from Itasca, Illinois, Abraham found in kickboxing a positive way to deal with anger and a life that could have gone very wrong.  When asked what he'd be doing if he weren't fighting, he replied, "Probably nothing good."  

Through the sport, however, he has found the discipline and skills needed to be successful in life.  So far he's enjoying the ride at Glory and is on a three fight win streak having defeated Pawel Jedrzejczyk in his Glory debut as well as Casey Greene and Francois Ambang at Glory 30 in Los Angeles.  Interestingly enough, prior to his debut at Glory 27, he had planned to return to Thailand.  The gods, however, were with him and he answered Glory's call.  Coincidentally, although he was scheduled to fight at Max Muay Thai stadium in Thailand, the stadium caught fire making Glory his blessing in disguise. Abraham expresses little fear in the face of any opponent his main goal is to be matched with fighters that will challenge him and take his skill level even higher and he doesn't mind being an underdog.  Being able to fight and be successful at his craft is his primary goal.  Abraham is a  self described well rounded fighter, with the ability to fight off multiple different styles. He is also keenly aware of the need for a synthesis between not only physical conditioning but also the mental aspect of fighting.  It's mind, body and soul.  

At Glory 34 Abraham prepares to face "The Blood Diamond" Mike Mathetha.  While not much is known about this opponent, Abraham is confident and prepared. Richard extends many thanks to all the fans for their support and he plans to continue to push hard and to show the world that he is a force.  For those interested in continue to watch this fighter on his journey you can follow him on both Twitter and Instagram @muaythaichicago or via his Facebook fan page Richard Maximus Abraham.  It's fight night on Friday, October 21st at Glory 34 Denver and another opportunity for this fighter to prove what he's made of.

Casey 'Go' Greene and Whatever It Takes at GLORY 34

Ready. Set. Go. Casey "Go" Greene that is. It's always great to talk to someone who is invested in advancing to the highest level of their craft.  What's even better is when you meet someone who attacks their goal with such tenacity that it would seem that their very life depended on it.  That is what you get when you meet Casey Greene.  The California native has joined the team and it's all or nothing.  Actually it's all for Greene, there is no other option.  Using the hashtag #Project WIT, Greene is living his philosophy, "Whatever it takes" (WIT).  Whatever it takes to be the best, whatever it takes to stay on top.  Whatever it takes to be the best man he can be in all aspects of his life. As kickboxing in the US steadily climbs in popularity, Greene plans to fulfill his dream of being on another level as well as taking the sport to another level.    

With a 4-3 record in Glory and currently ranked at #6, Greene is determined to set the welterweight division aflame.  A California native, Greene embarked upon his kickboxing journey fearlessly and with the idea in mind that becoming the best means training with the best, Carlos Dekkers, brother of the late and great Ramon Dekkers.  While seven fights does not a champion make, Greene has in this short time faced some of the best and brightest in Glory including Mike Lemaire, Dustin Jacoby and Francois Ambang.  Greene states that he works toward becoming a well rounded fighter and with experience in MMA, he counts his ability to stand and bang as an asset.

This Friday, October 21st, Greene is prepared  to do whatever it takes as he faces Glory newcomer Thongchai Sitsonpeenong at Glory 34 in Denver.  While his opponent has a record of more than 100 fights a fact like that doesn't phase Greene as he is willing to take on all comers as he continues to climb the ranks in his division.  

So if you haven't heard the name before, remember it, you'll be hearing it again and again.
