After the big success of Glory 19, the company needed to deliver another strong card to keep that momentum alive, and that's exactly what you have here. In the main event, Glory Lightweight champion Robin van Roosmalen looks to make his first title defense when he takes on Andy Ristie - the man who defeated him when they last fought at Glory 12. Now Roosmalen is the champ, but you know Ristie is coming for the title.
Also on the card is a second world title fight as Mosab Amrani and Gabriel Varga meet to crown the company's inaugural Featherweight champion. Featherweight doesn't have quite the name recognition of some of the other divisions, but just as we have seen in MMA, the lighter weights can lead to some extremely entertaining fights, and Amrani vs. Varga is a perfect fight for the title. This one will be glorious for the purists.
As always, the card includes the traditional Glory 4 man tournament. Here we have a Middleweight tournament, with the winner already announced to face champion Artem Levin at Glory 21 in May. Semifinals are Jason Wilnis vs. Alex Pereira, and a fight I have been hoping to see for some time, Wayne Barrett vs. Simon Marcus.
Join us here at Bloody Elbow for Glory 20 results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Friday, April 3.
