Saturday June 21, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Glory kickboxing. Glory presents back to back cards Saturday night with three world title fights. Up first it's Glory 17 Los Angeles, live on Spike TV at 8:00 p.m. ET. That's followed by the company's PPV debut with the Last Man Standing PPV live at 10:00 p.m. ET. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.
Kickboxing fans - this is a big one. The weekend we've been looking forward to for some time is finally upon us. Two Glory shows - one free on Spike, one on PPV. Three world champions crowned. Many of the world's top fighters in action... seriously, it's a big night. Glory has been steadily increasing its reach in the US since making their Spike debut last fall, and this event is a major test for them. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Highlighting the Spike broadcast is the latest from Mirko Cro Cop as he takes on Jarrel Miller. There's also a Featherweight contender tournament and a great Lightweight contender fight between Andy Ristie and Ky Hollenbeck. Heading over to PPV, you have two fantastic world title fights - one of which is a rematch from one of the best fights of 2013 - plus the 8 man Middleweight world title tournament. 14 fights in total, all with something interesting to offer.
Join us here at Bloody Elbow for Glory 17 Los Angeles and Last Man Standing results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Saturday, June 21.
