If the thought of waiting another week to see elite heavyweights punch each other in the effin’ face is just too much to bear, GLORY 11’s got your fix tomorrow with a 4-man tournament for their vacant title, featuring an all top-10 staff of Saki, Ghita, Braddock Silva, and Verhoeven. And they’re now on Spike TV, so you won’t be reduced to a pirate video of a Russian rebroadcast like I was last time.
Headlining the show is a light heavyweight rematch between Tyrone Spong and Australia’s Nathan “Carnage” Corbett. Spong is GLORY’s top dog at 95kg, but Corbett is a multiple time Muay Thai champ who flattened Spong back in 2009, but then NC’d himself by re-attacking just after the ref waved it off. That’s the sole blemish on his record in 28 fights stretching back to 2006, so he should be a serious threat for the surging Spong.
In the co-main event, Canada’s top welterweight prospect Joseph Valtellini (#6) takes on France’s Karim Ghajji (#5), who has literally 10 times as many fights on his resume (!). Also on the card, Errol Zimmerman looks to break his losing streak in the tourney reserve bout, Sergei Kharitonov fights the gigantic Daniel Sam, and the former #1 LHW Danyo Ilunga takes on #6 ranked Michael Duut.
