Nieky Holzken (c) vs. Murthel Groenhart – For Glory Welterweight Championship
Both fighters came out swinging as each let punches and low kicks fly. It seemed Groenhart was trying to pace himself early and not gas out as he has been prone to in the past. Holzken control the ring for most of the first round and it was very close. It could have gone either way.
The second round was much like the first with neither man backing down. Groenhart was a bit more aggressive, but Holzken still held control of the ring.
Groenhart continued to fire away with punches, low kicks and knees in the third round. Holzken was still controlling the center of the ring, but Gorenhart was a lot busier throwing strikes. Holzken landed a few nice shot of his own, but the work rate Groenhart is putting in could be a difference maker.
Holzken was a lot more active in the fourth round. He was controlling the center of the ring and backing up Groenhart, but unlike before he was throwing strikes. He worked his hands and knees early in the round, but Groenhart continued to fire low kicks and punches back at Holzken. The work rate was a lot more even this round.
The fifth round was close. Both fighters were active, but it seemed Groenhart might have just outworked Holzken in the final round. This fight was very close, neither fighter ever had the other in trouble and Groenhart was clearly more active throughout. It was a close one for the judges too as Holzken wins by split decision.
Result: Nieky Holzken def. Murthel Groenhart via Split Decision – Defends Glory Welterweight Championship
