After the conclusion of GLORY 31: Amsterdam, GLORY CEO Jon Franklin confirmed that the promotion are looking to make the Rico Verhoeven vs. Badr Hari fight.

Franklin confirmed his interest in the bout during the post-fight press conference and expanded on it in his exclusive interview with MMA PLUS.

At the beginning of June, Hari’s head coach Mike Passenier appeared on Dutch talk show PepTalk and claimed that he was set to sit down with GLORY lawyers to start the fight negotiations. It now seems that advanced talks are in place with all three camps.

Franklin spoke about the promotion continued global expansion, their international focus as well as the potential fight that is on everyone’s lips, Rico Verhoeven vs. Badr Hari.
