To those that have been asking about it, it looks like GLORY will once again show up on American airwaves as they will return to CBS Sports Network for the time being. That deal will be effective as of this weekend with GLORY 7 Milan, which takes place on Saturday but will air on tape delay early Sunday morning.
GLORY 8 Tokyo is also set to air on tape delay and it is unclear if we'll see live events on CBS Sports any time soon or if they'll continue the tape delay. It is also unclear for how long this agreement lasts or if it will be like the last one and only be for a few events and expire. The fact that GLORY 9 is set to go down in New York City and GLORY 10 is rumored for Los Angeles gives us hope for live GLORY on television here in the US, though.
This comes as a bit of a surprise as GLORY were in talks with other, larger networks before signing this deal with CBS Sports, but we do know that CBS Sports was very aggressive about bringing the GLORY brand into the fold for more events and looking fore more original content to air on the network.
For those that wish to watch GLORY 7 live, you can of course purchase the PPV through LiverKick.com or on GloryWorldSeries.com for $20.
