The GLORY 39 fight card is nearly complete.

The promotion has announced the participants of the Featherweight Contender Tournament which takes place Saturday, March 25 from the Forest National in Brussels. The same venue hosted GLORY 2 in October of 2012.

Former featherweight titleholder Serhiy Adamchuk will take on Uzbekistan’s Anvar Boynazarov in one half of the tournament ladder, while 21-year-old Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao clashes with Russia’s Alexei Ulyanov in the other side of the bracket. The tournament winner will face No. 1 contender Robin van Roosmalen for the vacant title later in 2017.

The tournament joins the third meeting between welterweight champion Cédric Doumbé and Switzerland’s Yoann Kongolo. The pair have met twice previously — in 2014 and at GLORY 22 in 2015 — with Kongolo winning by decision each time.

On the SuperFight Series portion of the event, the world’s pound-for-pound No. 1 kickboxer, Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, puts his lightweight title on the line against Frenchman Dylan Salvador. The pair have also shared the ring on two prior occasions, but split the two contests.

The SuperFight Series portion of the event will stream live on UFC Fight Pass at 12 p.m. ET, with the main card streaming at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN 3.
