Spong wrecks Bonjasky at Glory 5

Tyrone Spong made his successful MMA debut at World Series Of Fighting’s inaugural event, but while WSOF 2 was going down in New Jersey yesterday, he was busy kick(box)ing ass in the main event at Glory 5 in London.  Despite 3-time K-1 champ Remy Bonjasky’s size advantage, Spong dominated from the opening bell until a hard right hook dropped Bonjasky through the ropes midway through the second round.

That makes the second aging legend Spong has KO’d in as many fights, having stopped another 3-time K-1 champ in Peter Aerts last June.  Now sporting a 5-fight win streak and a record of 69-6-1-1 at only 27 years old (!!!), Spong is the current young lion of kickboxing, and a shot at Glory’s heavyweight (and only) champ Semmy Schilt is likely next.  As for the 37-year-old Bonjasky who recently returned from a 3-year layoff, it may be the end of a glorious career.

Overall, it was an entertaining and fast-paced whirlwind of a show, with 11 fights crammed into a 3-hour broadcast, all of which hilariously introduced by the Screaming Pride Lady.  Check out the rest of the results and more sweet gifage by Zombie Prophet over at Bloody Elbow.

    it was kind of entertaining as a outsider, but I’m glad it was pulled.

    jawsh – did you get your tattoo?

  • mobius

    hmm, previous comment didn’t show. Are they all getting moderated now or is it a site hiccup?

    Kudos to Ryan on that. 24 hours after WSOF and Glory and all we had was some bullshit about Helwani. Made the site look ridiculously bad.
