This week is going to have a lot of it dedicated to GLORY 14 Zagreb, but we came across this interesting bit of information over the past few days. GLORY has announced that GLORY 16 will happen in Denver but we've yet to hear exactly what will be at Denver. The rumored GLORY event in Denver for earlier this year was supposed to feature Light Heavyweights, but as we've seen, that is now in GLORY 15 Istanbul instead. So what does that mean we'll see at GLORY 16 Denver?
According to our sources, GLORY 16 Denver will feature a 4-man Heavyweight contender tournament, much like what we are seeing at GLORY 14 Zagreb with the Middleweight Contender tournament. Seeing as Heavyweight is one of GLORY's deepest and most talent-rich divisions you can definitely look forward to some big names taking place in the tournament. Of course there is the unsubstantiated rumor started by Badr Hari's camp that he'll be involved in GLORY 16 Denver, but for right now, don't get your hopes up.Add a comment
Sure, you might be most excited for GLORY 14 Zagreb's headliner, Mirko Cro Cop vs. Remy Bonjasky, but on the undercard there are a bunch of stellar fights involved as well. The Middleweight Contender tournament goes down on the undercard and it features Dustin Jacoby vs. Alex Pereira and Sahak Paparyan vs. Jason Wilnis. Wilnis vs. Paparyan is definitely an exciting bout, with Paparyan one of the most well-known Middleweights throughout the years and Wilnis making a name for himself of late.

You could make a pretty good argument for Paul Daley to turn some heads within the GLORY organization with this weekend's bout with one of the top Welterweights within the organization at Siam Warriors in Cork, Ireland. It was Paul Daley's second Muay Thai/Kickboxing bout of the year and his second win, but this one is pretty huge as it was over #3 ranked (in GLORY) Alexander Stetsurenko in just fifteen seconds, which is a huge, huge win.
I'm not sure that it'll be enough for GLORY to overlook his inability to fight in the United States at the moment, but he'd make for a solid attraction for European events, right? ZProphet has the video.Add a comment
Friday Night Fights bid February farewell last night with a card that featured a highly anticipated match between two well known professional female fighters. The main event of the evening, Ashley Nichols versus Angela Hill, highlighted the distinctive fighting styles of both women to full effect, and showed why both have struck such a strong chord within the North American Muay Thai community. For the first three rounds, Hill demonstrated the aggressive punching and clinching style that inspired her fight name of “Overkill.” The beautiful technique of Nichols was more visible in rounds four and five, when she used front push kicks and long knees to keep Hill from closing in as much, but it was too little too late. Hill won a split decision victory over Nichols, maintaining her undefeated record and winning the WKA North American Flyweight title.
The other pro fight of the evening featured another Canadian from MAS Academy, Robert “White Dragon” Thomas, versus Tarek Rached, the Lebanese Tiger. The powerful Rached bullied his much taller opponent until Thomas gained control of the distance in round two and three. Rached was rocked by a knee and saved by the bell in round two, but not before getting an 8-count. Another crisp right knee from Thomas ended the fight 59 seconds into round three, giving him the win by TKO.
