GLORY Kickboxing traveled to Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on Saturday, March 3, for its 51st event, dubbed Bad Blood.
The event was headlined by a heavyweight rematch between the sport’s notorious bad boy, Badr Hari, and veteran Hesdy Gerges. The pair met previously under the It’s Showtime banner in 2010, with Gerges winning by disqualification after Hari kicked him while he was on the mat following a knockdown.
The main card also featured a one-night, four-man welterweight contender tournament. In one half of the ladder, Aruban Eyevan Danenberg clashed with Frenchman Jimmy Vienot, while Thailand’s Thongchai Sitsongpeenong took on Argentina’s Alan Scheinson in the other side of the bracket.
In the night’s SuperFight Series headliner, former welterweight champion Cédric Doumbé took on rising contender Alim Nabiyev.
