The Glory 41 fight card set for the Brabanthallen Exhibition Centre in Den Bosch, Netherlands on May 20 has been finalized.
It seems this time around that Glory has decided to put their star power on the Super Fight Series portion of the fight card rather than the main card.
Headlining the main card will be the final of the night’s 4-man heavyweight contender tournament. The semi-finals for the tournament are Anderson Silva vs. Giannis Stoforidis and Xavier Vigney vs. D’Angelo Marshall.
The night’s co-headlining bout will feature Hesdy Gerges vs. Chi Lewis-Parry. The pair was previously scheduled to fight at Glory 39, but the fight was called off on the day of the event because there wasn’t gloves to fit Lewis-Parry.
The Super Fight Series portion will be headlined by Glory’s biggest star, heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven. The King of Kickboxing will welcome promotional new comer Ismael Lazaar in a non title bout.
In the co-headliner of the Super Fight Series Robin van Roosmalen and Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao will fight for the vacant featherweight title. Former champion van Roomsalen will attempt to regain the title he lost on the scale at Glory 37. He was stripped of the belt when he failed to make weight for his title fight with Matt Embree. He became the number one contender after winning the bout. Petchpanomrung earned his title shot by winning the featherweight contender tournament at Glory 39.
Other notable names competing in the Super Fight Series are Murthel Groenhart, Michael Duut, and Anvar Boynazarov.
The Super Fight Series will stream live on UFC Fight Pass, while the main card will stream live on ESPN 3.
