Cedric Doumbe Puts On the Performance of a Lifetime, Usurping Nieky Holzken

After years on top of the Welterweight division, the king, Nieky Holzken, has been dethroned. His loss came by the hands of the man who has quietly ascended the rankings over the past few years without much hype or fanfare in Cedric Doumbe. Doumbe has been looking incredible in all of his recent fights and going into this fight it was hard to discount him.

What ensued was a masterful performance, the exact fight that had to happen against the once-dominant Nieky Holzken by mixing up his strikes, controlling the ring and sneaking in his dangerous uppercuts after landing serious low kicks. Doumbe found a formula to keep Holzken from hitting his groove and carried it through to a resounding victory.

GLORY Announces GLORY 38 Chicago

On Friday, February 24th GLORY makes their return to Chicago with GLORY 38: Chicago. The event will go down at the Sears Center and features a headline bout between GLORY Lightweight Champion Artem Vakhitov and former champion Saulo Cavalari. The two fights have a win apiece against each other and the title will be on the line this time out. 

The SuperFight Series will feature an interesting brawl-to-end-all-brawls in Chi Lewis-Parry squaring off against Romanian slugger Catalin Morosanu. Seriously, that fight doesn't see the second round and should be insane. 

More bouts are to be announced shortly.

VIDEO: GLORY Pays Tribute to Marc de Bonte

During the GLORY: Collision event in Oberhausen, Germany GLORY paid tribute to the fallen former GLORY Welterweight Champion, Marc de Bonte. They did so with a tasteful video reflecting on de Bonte's GLORY 16 title win, his impact on the sport and the people around him and the hole that his passing left in the sport.

 

GLORY, of course, weren't the only ones paying tribute to de Bonte, as Kunlun Fight held their Welterweight tournament today, which de Bonte was scheduled to be a part of.

Michael Duut and Danyo Ilunga Beat The Snot Out of Each Other In Extra Round Thriller

After what has been a rather tepid night of fights in Germany for GLORY, the main event of the GLORY SuperFight Series delivered in a huge way. In a rematch between Danyo Ilunga and Michael Duut both men decided to go all-out and beat the ever-living snot out of each other. While the term is thrown out a bit too often, this could easily be considered the fight of the year by most metrics.

While the fight wasn't a marvel of technical acumen and precision, it was a fight that helped to encapsulate all of the great things about kickboxing. Duut went out there looking to entertain and Ilunga was swiftly swept up into that vortex of violence, with both men trading downs throughout the fight leading to a majority draw. That meant extra round. 

Extra violence. 

The extension round went as the rest of the fight did; both men trading blows, wobbling each other and making roaring come backs before Duut finally dropped Ilunga with just seconds left to go. Ilunga was able to fight back to his feet, but that was enough to seal the deal for Duut and to even up the series between the two fighters at one win apiece. If you missed it, the fight can be viewed on UFC Fight Pass.
