Live results for GLORY 40: SuperFight Series and GLORY 40 which takes place on Saturday, 29 April at the Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark and features a GLORY world title fight.
In the GLORY 40 main event, middleweight champion Jason Wilnis (30-6-1) will face the No.1-ranked Canadian Simon Marcus (45-3-2) in a rematch of their GLORY 33: New Jersey fight last September.
On the GLORY 40: SuperFight Series; broadcast on UFC Fight Pass, Richard Abraham will welcome Jamie Bates (24-6) to the Glory ring after the Englishman defeated Kev Ward by unanimous decision to earn a two-fight contract at the Road to GLORY event in Grantham, England last month.
In the co-main event of the evening, No. 6 ranked Glory lightweight Niclas Larsen (45-8-2) will take on Thailand’s Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai (83-22-1) in a potentially mouthwatering encounter. A win for Larsen in front of his countrymen could see the highly touted prospect leapfrogged his opponent in the rankings and put himself with touching distance of a shot at currently champion Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong lightweight belt.
The card also features a 4-man middleweight tournament featuring Yousri Belgaroui, Agron Preteni, Alex Pereira and Burim Rama as well as the return of former title contender Josh Janucey.
