As previously announced, GLORY will be holding Road to GLORY events in the United States, with six of those events taking place in the first five months of 2013. Each event will feature a one night, eight man tournament, with a tournament for each of GLORY's weight classes. Fighter applications are now available on GLORY's website, where fighters can apply to compete in these events, although they've specified that they're looking for fighters from the USA, Canada, Mexico and Brazil.
The winners of the Road to GLORY USA tournaments will receive $20 000 USD and a one year GLORY contract.
GLORY’s six weight classes are as follows: flyweight (143 pounds/65kg), lightweight (154 pounds/70kg), welterweight (170 pounds/77kg), middleweight (187 pounds/85kg), light heavyweight (209 pounds/95kg), heavyweight (above 209 pounds/+95kg).
