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.
