On Thursday, Aug. 6, GLORY will hold the weigh-ins for its 23rd event, which will take place Friday, Aug. 7, from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s vacant welterweight title is on the line when Dutchman Nieky Holzken rematches American Raymond Daniels. The pair met in February in the finals of the GLORY 19 contender tournament. That night, Holzken crushed Daniels with his patented right hook in the third round. Now, with former champion Joseph Valtellini vacating the title, Holzken will look to repeat his performance from earlier in the year. Daniels, meanwhile, bounced back in May with a 51-second knockout of Justin Baesman at GLORY 21.

Also on the main card, there will be a four-man, All-American middleweight tournament that will reward the winner with a future contender tournament slot. In one half of the bracket, GLORY veteran Casey Greene welcomes Quinton O’Brien to the promotion. Former Road to Glory winner Dustin Jacoby clashes with Ariel Sepulveda in the other half of the ladder.

The night’s main card airs on Spike TV on Friday at 11 p.m. ET.

The fighters hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday. A live stream of action (courtesy of GLORY) appears above, while results appear below.
