Results & Video: Weight-class switching and other interesting match-ups at Glory – Sittichai, Thongchai, Van Roosmalen, Salvador etc.
A few changes were made to the Glory 35 fight card from since we first published it. First, Sittichai Sit2PN’s fight with Marat Grigorian was postponed to Glory 36 in December, therefore, Thai “yod muay” Petchpanomrung Kiatmoo9 was to defend Thailand’s pride and to make his Kickboxing rules debut, after he signed his contract with Glory Kickboxing a few month back. As you can see from the video below, he put un an amazing performance and adapted his Muay Thai “fee meu” style very well to the Glory rules.
Another change was that Josh Jauncey did not fight Dylan Salvador, but Christian Baya instead.

Original article from October 16th:
The next two Glory Kickboxing events will be Glory 34 in Denver (USA) and Glory 35 in Nice (France).
Glory 34 will be held on Friday 21 October 2016 at 1st Bank Center in Denver, Colorado.
The main event will be an all-Dutch trilogy Glory Welterweight World Title fight between reigning champion Nieky Holzken and Murthel Groenhart, who, after various attempts at the lightweight belt, he went up a weight class, won the contender tournament and now he is looking to achieve his ultimate goal.
The co-main event of the evening will be a very interesting Glory Featherweight World Title fight between Canadian reigning champ Gabriel Varga and former Lightweight champ Robin Van Roosmalen, who recently lost his title against Sittichai and is going down a weight class; surprising fact, since there is 6 kg difference between Featherweight (64 kg) and Lightweight (70 kg). It will be thrilling to see how RVR will do at this weight.
Also to be noted in this upcoming event is the Glory debut of Tongchai Sitsongpeenong, after signing to the promotion a few months back; he will face Casey Greene in his second Kickboxing fight.
Glory 35 will be held on Saturday 5th November 2016 at Palais Nikaia in Nice, France.
The main event will be Sittichai Sit2PN‘s first Lightweight Title defense against Marat Grigorian; this will also be an exciting trilogy, as the pair fought twice in the past and the Thai came out victorious in both occasions.
Another fight to keep in mind for Muay Thai fans is the one between Dylan Salvador, who recently fought Buakaw, and young Canadian Josh Jauncey, who has put up decent performances against stars like Sittichai and Giorgio Petrosyan.
