GLORY’s Lightweight World Title is on the line in the co-headline bout as #1 ranked Andy ‘The Machine’ Ristie (41-3-1, 21 KOs) faces rising American contender Ky Hollenbeck (46-3-0, 23 KOs), currently ranked #5. Both fighters last competed at GLORY 12 NEW YORK, where Ristie knocked out Giorgio Petrosyan and Robin van Roosmalen to become GLORY Lightweight Tournament World Champion, and Hollenbeck defeated Warren Stevelmans by unanimous decision.
In a one-night, four-man tournament to establish GLORY’s next Middleweight contender, #5 ranked Sahak Parparyan (40-10-5, 19 KOs) of Armenia battles #6 ranked Jason Wilnis (21-3-1, 6 KOs) of the Netherlands. On the other side of the bracket, American prospect Dustin Jacoby (4-3-0, 3 KOs) meets Brazilian Alex Pereira (11-1-0, 8 KOs). The Contender Tournament winner earns a spot in GLORY’s Middleweight World Championship Tournament later this year.
