Glory is putting on a great card on Saturday, May 26 in Stockholm, Sweden, and after a few changes to the card, we're here with the finalized line up of fights.

In the main event, Semmy Schilt fights Errol Zimmerman for the Glory World Heavyweight Title in a battle of top 5 fighters in the division. Semmy recently made his return after over a year off, defeating Brice Guidon by decision in March. Guidon gave him a very tough fight though, and Schilt will have to be on top of his game to beat Zimmerman on Saturday. Zimmerman has been on fire lately, going undefeated in 2011 and this year so far with big first round stoppage wins over Rico Verhoeven and Jerome Le Banner. This isn't the first time Schilt and Zimmerman have fought, as Schilt defeated him by unanimous decision back in 2010, for K-1.

Gokhan Saki returns after his loss to Badr Hari in January, and he faces Carter Williams. This fight is for Saki to get back on track, so expect an emphatic win.

Now for the meat of the card, the Final 16 of Glory's 70kg tournament. The tournament has some great fights, like Yoshihiro Sato vs. Shemsi Beqiri, Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Fabio Pinca and Robin van Roosmalen vs. Dzhabar Askerov to name a few. Askerov vs. van Roosmalen has all the makings of an all out war, as both fighters like to stand and throw non stop combinations with bad intentions. Although Fabio Pinca is a 67kg Muay Thai fighter moving up in weight to fight Petrosyan, he has a style that could make for a competitive, technical fight with the best kickboxer in the world.

The Final 16 match-ups include some long time top fighters, new faces, up and comers, and even guys going up in weight. There's a lot of interesting style match-ups and I think we're in for some great fights on Saturday. Here's the full, finalized fight card, including the MMA fights.
