GLORY Kickboxing travels to Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on Saturday, March 3, for its 51st event, dubbed Bad Blood.
The event is 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 features a one-night, four-man welterweight contender tournament. In one half of the ladder, Aruba native Eyevan Danenberg clashes with Frenchman Jimmy Vienot, while Thailand’s Thongchai Sitsongpeenong takes on Argentina’s Alan Scheinson in the other side of the bracket.
In the night’s SuperFight Series headliner, former welterweight champion Cédric Doumbé takes on rising contender Alim Nabiyev.
The GLORY 51 SuperFight Series airs at 1 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass. The main card airs live at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN3, Fox Sports Africa, SFR Sport 5, Fight Network (Canada), FreeSports (United Kingdom), OSN Sports (Middle East), Ziggo Sport (The Netherlands), Sky (New Zealand), Digisport (Europe), KBS (South Korea), Fight Channel (Bosnia & Herzegovina), KIX (Asia), QQ (China), and GLORY pay-per-view (International).
