On Friday, Oct. 9, GLORY returns to the Mile High City for its 24th event, which will take place from Magness Arena on the University of Denver campus.
In the night’s main event, a pair of top-ranked middleweights will lock horns, as American Joe Schilling takes on Dutchman Jason Wilnis. Schilling was originally slated to face reigning middleweight champion Artem Levin, but the Russian was forced out due to injury. Schilling has not competed in the GLORY ring since February, when he claimed a decision win over Canadian Robert Thomas at GLORY 19. Wilnis, meanwhile, was last in the GLORY ring in April, falling short against recent title challenger Simon Marcus in the contender tournament final.
Also on the main card, there will be a four-man, heavyweight tournament that will reward the winner with a title shot against champion Rico Verhoeven at GLORY 26 in December. In one half of the bracket, Australia’s Ben Edwards faces off with Jahfarr Wilnis, the older brother of Jason, while recent title challenger Benjamin Adegbuyi clashes with Croatian Mladen Brestovac in the other half of the ladder.
The action kicks off with a local undercard at 6:30 p.m. ET. The night’s Superfight Series streams live at 8:30 p.m. ET for a fee of $9.99 on Combat Press. The main card can be streamed above at 11 p.m. ET for $9.99. The stream is blocked in the United States and Ex-Yugoslavia.
