Hesdy Gerges is Ready For Benny Adegbuyi at GLORY 18

At GLORY 18 Hesdy Gerges will be squaring off against SuperKombat and Romanian standout Benjamin Adegbuyi in a battle that will see a potential next contender for the GLORY Heavyweight Championship after Errol Zimmerman has his crack at Rico Verhoeven. There is a lot on the line for Gerges, whose career has seen its shares of highs and lows over the past few years.

Our cameras caught up with him and Gerges definitely saw some holes in the game of Adegbuyi, noting that Benny was a good fighter but that he wasn't particularly strong or skilled compared to him. This should definitely be one of the more interesting fights of the night, for sure. 


Saulo Cavalari is Ready for Anything in GLORY 18's Light Heavyweight Tournament

On Friday night at GLORY 18 Brazilian Saulo Cavalari will step into the ring at the GLORY Light Heavyweight tournament where he has a chance to win a shot at the GLORY Light Heavyweight Championship. It's a tough field, with him fighting Danyo Ilunga first before potentially facing either Zack Mwekassa or Brian Collette in the finals.

Cavalari was last seen in the ring against Tyrone Spong, impressing a lot of people who saw Spong as a clear-cut favorite. Our cameras caught up with him on Thursday to discuss the upcoming tournament where he revealed that he keeps in steady shape so that he doesn't have to cut weight and that he doesn't specifically prepare for any of his opponents, he's just ready for whatever might come.


Danyo Ilunga Sees GLORY 18 as a Chance for Redemption

Danyo Ilunga was probably the one omission that was kind of frustrating to a lot of fans when it came to GLORY crowning a Light Heavyweight Champion earlier this year. Ilunga fought in a reserve fight at GLORY 15, which left him on the sidelines to watch Gokhan Saki and Tyrone Spong meet in the ring, which was an interesting call considering he met Spong in the finals of GLORY 9's Light Heavyweight tournament a year before. 

Ilunga is finally getting his due in the GLORY 18 Light Heavyweight Contender's tournament and he seems focused on making the best of his time in the ring on Friday. He's using the omission from the previous tournament and his controversial loss to Spong as a jumping off point for his inspiration on Friday night. Our cameras caught up with him and he dished out what we can expect from him at GLORY 18.


Zack Mwekassa Would Prefer Not to Fight Danyo Ilunga at GLORY 18

On Friday night in Oklahoma at GLORY 18 Zack Mwekassa will have a chance to once again showcase his skills to the world after his impressive performance at GLORY 16 against Pat Barry. Mwekassa enters the GLORY 18 Light Heavyweight Contender's tournament, the winner getting a shot at the GLORY Light Heavyweight Championship gold. His first challenge will be against American Brian Collette, a stiff challenge from the New York muay thai scene.

We caught up with Zack in Oklahoma and asked him an array of questions, from if we can expect more kicks from him this time out to who he doesn't want to have to fight in the tournament (hint: he thinks that Danyo is a swell guy).
