On Friday, April 3, GLORY hosted its 20th event from the Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
In the night’s main event, lightweight champion Robin van Roosmalen looked to defend his belt against the hard-hitting Andy Ristie. The pair met previously at GLORY 12 in late 2013, with Ristie claiming the victory via second-round knockout. Since then, both fighters crossed paths with Davit Kiria, who knocked out Ristie to earn GLORY gold, but gave up the title when he was defeated by van Roosmalen in November.
The co-main event saw the promotion crown a featherweight champion as Canada’s Gabriel Varga took on Holland’s Mosab Amrani.
Rounding out the main card was the middleweight contender tournament which pitted Canadian Simon Marcus against American Wayne Barrett and Dutchman Jason Wilnis against Brazilian Alex Pereira. The winner earned a title shot against current champion Artem Levin.
The night’s main card airs on Spike TV on Friday at 10 p.m. ET. The night’s Superfight Series fights will air on the CBS Sports Network on Saturday, April 4 at 8 p.m. ET.
