This Friday, June 5, Glory presents Glory 22, live from Lille, France As always, Bloody Elbow will have your full fight coverage. Glory 22 is headlined by a Heavyweight title fight and superb Lightweight tournament, but it also features a pretty stacked card all the way from top to bottom. Prior to the live Spike show, Glory will, as always, present their Superfight Series and once again, you can watch these Superfights live as they happen
The Glory Superfight Series for Glory 22 will be available LIVE in a live stream, right here at Bloody Elbow. The stream costs $9.99 and will be available live with a fight time of 1:30 pm ET. The show is geo-blocked in ex-Yugoslavia, but will be available to fans in the US. Watch the live stream in the embedded video above.
As mentioned above, this is a great Superfight Series full of interesting match-ups. Leading the way is a Heavyweight clash between Jamal Ben Saddik and Freddy Kemayo. Ben Saddik is 3-4 in Glory and is one of those fighters where you never really know what to expect, but it’s probably going to be entertaining. This is his first fight for Glory since a suspension for attacking a downed Hesdy Gerges in a non-Glory event last year. He takes on wily veteran Freddy Kemayo. Kemayo is making his Glory debut here, but he’s a ridiculously well-traveled fighter, with 12 years as a pro at a high level under his belt. He has the technical advantage here, and could make things tough for the more wild Ben Saddik, but he’ll also be giving up a massive size advantage (7 inches in height and somewhere in the ballpark of 50 pounds in weight) that I suspect will be impossible to overcome. Still, a good fight, and a great addition to Glory.
UPDATE: Freddy Kemayo is ill and off the card. He is replaced at the last minute by Momoudou Keta, a sparring partner of Glory Heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven.
Also in the Superfights, Mourad Bouzidi takes on Filip Verlinden at Light Heavyweight, and exciting Featherweight fighter Shane Oblonsky takes on Thomas Adamandopoulos. The other fighter I am really looking forward to seeing here is Marat Grigorian – a superb and grossly underrated and overlooked Lightweight who absolutely should be in the title mix (and, frankly, who should be in the Glory 22 tournament). He came very close to beating now champion Robin van Roosmalen last year, and now looks to build some momentum against Djime Coulibaly.
Get the full fight card below.
