Not familiar with Glory? Check out below more info on the premier Kickboxing league from their official website:
“The world’s premier kickboxing league, GLORY World Series maintains six different weight classes. Fights take place both as single matches between two fighters (known as ‘superfights’) and as part of tournaments.
Four-man tournaments are the standard, with eight-man tournaments also staged on occasion.
The tournaments take one of two forms. Either World Championship Tournaments, with the division‘s world title on the line, or they are ‘Contender’ tournaments, with the winner earning a spot in the next upcoming World Championship Tournaments.
Fighters are ranked according to a thorough point-system maintained by the GLORY World Federation. It awards points to fighters based on their performances in tournaments and in single bouts.
Ranking points allow fighters to climb their division and get into the positions which will gain them title shots and entry to the Contender and/or World Championship Tournaments. Points are gained primarily via participation in single fights which form part the GLORY Superfight Series cards.
GLORY World Series rules permit the use of punches, kicks and knee strikes. Clinching is extremely limited – no more than five seconds, and the clinch must be active – and there are no take downs and no fighting on the floor.”
