Pat Barry has been forced to withdraw from his main card against Mourad Bouzidi due to an injury to his hand, according to combatpress.com and will be replaced by Dustin Jacoby. Barry had been hoping to make amends for his disappointing Glory debut against Zack Mwekassa, which ended with Barry on the wrong side of a brutal knockout.
While Glory fans will likely be disappointed with Pat Barry’s withdrawal, the disappointment should be short lived, as the promotion has announced a featherweight title fight as a replacement. Rising Canadian star Gabriel Varga faces Mosab Amrani, who will be looking to build upon his stunning body kick finish of Lim Chi-Bin last time out.
Glory 20 goes down on April 3, in the Dubai World Trade Center, Dubai, and will be headlined by a long anticipated rematch between Robin Van Roosmalen and Andy Ristie for the lightweight title. Van Roosmalen and Ristie previously fought at Glory 13 in the final of the lightweight tournament, with Ristle winning via a devastating left uppercut knockout. Since then, Van Roosmalen has won the title and will be looking to set the record straight against the explosive Ristie.
