GLORY’s got tournaments galore

There’s no more UFC (besides TUF) for another two weeks, but fret not, because GLORY kickboxing is back with the first of a series of 4-man tournaments to establish champions in their various weight classes.

GLORY 10 Los Angeles goes down this Saturday with the middleweight (85 kg / 187 lbs) championship tourney, topped by two top-10 lightweight battles, plus a bunch more “superfights” on the 11-bout main card.

Two weeks later is GLORY 11 Chicago, headlined by the #1 light heavyweight Tyrone Spong versus Nathan Corbett (#5), plus a heavyweight tourney featuring the likes of Gokhan Saki, Daniel Ghita, Anderson “Braddock” Silva, Rico Verhoeven, and Errol Zimmerman.  The winner of that bracket will don the heavyweight belt recently vacated by Semmy Schilt.  Then comes the lightweight tournament at GLORY 12 New York on November 23, and a welterweight tourney in Tokyo in December.

GLORY 10 is the last event before their Spike contract starts, so unless you get CBS Sports, you can watch it live online on GLORY’s site and Liverkick.com, or on the torrentz some time on Sunday (like yours truly).  Check out the full card for this weekend’s GLORY 10 and the GLORY 11 trailer after the jump.

    I heard Sponge is supposed to be pretty good.
    I’d definitely be more interested if Badr was in there somewhere.

    But I just dont care for the tournament format to much.
    It mostly seems to prove either who got the luckiest that night or who got favored with the easier bracket then who is the best fighter.
