On Thursday, April 2, GLORY hosted the weigh-ins for its 20th event which takes place Friday, April 3, from the Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
In the night’s main event, lightweight champion Robin van Roosmalen will look 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 will see the promotion crown a featherweight champion as Canada’s Gabriel Varga takes on Holland’s Mosab Amrani.
Rounding out the main card will be the middleweight contender tournament which pits Canadian Simon Marcus against American Wayne Barrett and Dutchman Jason Wilnis against Brazilian Alex Pereira. The winner will earn a title shot.
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.
