DENVER – GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, begins the new year with new faces when the 2017 campaign kicks off in the beating heart of California.
The Novo – part of the L.A. LIVE entertainment complex in Downtown Los Angeles – hosts GLORY 37 Los Angeles and GLORY 37 SuperFight Series on Friday, Jan. 20.
GLORY 37 Los Angeles, to be broadcast on ESPN Networks, is headlined by a fresh featherweight match-up pitting newly crowned champion Robin “Pokerface” van Roosmalen (36-6, 20 KO) up against overnight sensation Matt “Matics” Embree (39-7, 18 KO).
After a highly successful run at lightweight, including a stint as champion, Van Roosmalen dropped down for his featherweight debut at GLORY 34 SuperFight Series in October, defeating then-champion Gabriel Varga in a dominant performance to capture GLORY gold once again. At just 27 years old, Van Roosmalen is the first fighter to hold titles in two separate GLORY weight classes.
The 27-year-old challenger, hailing from Toronto, Canada, made his GLORY debut just one month earlier at GLORY 33 New Jersey, where Embree tore through the four-man contender tournament, knocking out both Chibin Lim and Giga Chikadze in a single night.
GLORY 37 Los Angles is expected to include a four-man welterweight contender tournament and additional bouts for both GLORY 37 Los Angeles and GLORY 37 Super Fight Series – streaming live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass – will be announced shortly.
