GLORY 11 Chicago is rapidly approaching, being a historic event that will be broadcast live on Spike TV here in the United States as well as featured a one-night, four-man Heavyweight tournament featuring Gokhan Saki, Daniel Ghita, Anderson Silva and Rico Verhoeven. Then, of course, there is the main event between Tyrone Spong and Nathan "CARNAGE" Corbett, a rematch from their controversial 2009 bout, which makes GLORY 11 all the more interesting.
GLORY have released their final card for the event today, with the whole thing looking quite interesting.
While October 12th might be the official launch date for GLORY 11 and GLORY's tenure on Spike TV, tonight will mark GLORY's debut on Spike TV with a half hour highlight broadcast that is set to go down at 11PM Eastern. This is a strategic move from both Spike TV and GLORY as it will be coming directly after TNA Impact Wrestling, which might not draw the same kind of audience as WWE does, but it does bring in a solid audience week after week.
It was a similar tactic that helped to build up the UFC with The Ultimate Fighter, as TUF followed WWE's Monday Night Raw on Spike TV for the first season, which helped to bring more exposure to it. It's not clear what they will fit into a 30 minute broadcast, but with GLORY 11 coming up, I'd expect highlights from fights of the upcoming competitors.Add a comment
This past weekend's GLORY 10 event featured a few key Lightweight fights in the GLORY hierarchy, just how important they were wasn't officially revealed but implied, but now we know for sure what to expect on Saturday, November 23rd in New York as GLORY's Lightweights are set to take the stage. The GLORY 12 Lightweight tournament was always going to featured Giorgio Petrosyan, the consensus #1 at 70kg (GLORY's Lightweight), but the rest were up in the air.
Andy Ristie's win over Niclas Larsen secured his spot within the tournament, as did Davit Kiria's big win over Murthel Groenhart. Robin Van Roosmalen was able to keep his spot secure with his win over Shemsi Beqiri as well. So without further ado, here are the GLORY 12 Lightweight tournament match-ups.
GLORY 10 was this past weekend and most of us are still coming down from the buzz of it all, where we saw some great fights and a new Middleweight Champion crowned by the way of Joe Schilling. For GLORY, who are looking to make a big push into the United States, things couldn't have went better for them as there were multiple American stars born from outstanding performances. Ky Hollenbeck, Wayne Barrett and Joe Schilling put forth great efforts that really caught the world by fire.
So relive it and check out what was going on backstage during the event.Add a comment
There isn't much in the world I hate as much as I hate bronchitis. I used to get bronchitis a lot when I was younger, and if you've somehow gotten by in life without being afflicted by it, consider yourself lucky. Imagine having the flu but also coughing a ton, like real loud, awful coughs. That is bronchitis, which only makes Joe Schilling's performance this weekend all the more amazing, as he was recovering from a bout of bronchitis going into this weekend's GLORY 10.
This new interview with Joe Schilling from Marcus Kowal provides some insight into where Schilling was before this event, which was borrowing money from his manager for gas and medicals, to being the GLORY Middleweight Champion with a huge win over Artem Levin. Joe also has the realization during this that he doesn't have to do the chasing anymore, that guys have to chase him to get a shot at the belt and it is a pretty cool moment.Add a comment
