GLORY 68 Results: Pereira Crushes Abena to Become Two-Division Champion

On Saturday, Sept. 28, GLORY Kickboxing hosted its 68th event from the James L. Knight Center in Miami.

In the night’s main event, current middleweight champion Alex Pereira moved up in weight to challenge Donegi Abena for the interim light heavyweight belt. Brazil’s Pereira rode a six-fight winning streak that included four straight title defenses. The Suriname native Abena looked to rebound from his failed conquest to dethrone current light heavyweight king Artem Vakhitov at GLORY 66.

The night’s SuperFight Series headliner featured former super bantamweight champions Tiffany van Soest and Jady Menezes.


GLORY 68 kicked off with a live preliminary-card stream on YouTube at 6 p.m. ET. The SuperFight Series streamed live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. The night’s main card began at 9 p.m. ET, also on UFC Fight Pass.
