On Saturday, Dec. 21, GLORY Kickboxing closed out 2019 with its biggest event of the year. The promotion touched down in Arnhem, Netherlands for its 74th event, dubbed Collision 2.
In the night’s main event, the promotion’s heavyweight king, Rico Verhoeven, put his belt on the line against bitter rival Badr Hari. The pair met previously in 2016 at Collision in Germany, with Holland’s Verhoeven stopping the Moroccan Hari in the second round due to an arm injury. Since then, Verhoeven had competed five times and made three successful title defenses. The 35-year-old Hari returned to action at GLORY 51, defeating Hesdy Gerges by decision.
