Cedric Doumbe returns against Alim Nabiyev at Glory 51

Cedric Doumbe announced this week he will return to the kickboxing ring on March 3 at Glory 51 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Doumbe will face upstart Alim Nabiyev in what looks like an excellent matchup.

It’s Doumbe’s first fight since losing his Glory welterweight title to Murthel Groenhart at Glory 44 last August. Doumbe was outhustled in that fight by Murthel, who fought a very intelligent fight.

Nabiyev impressed with his decision win over former champion Nieky Holzken in December at Glory 49: Redemption. Nabiyev used a high work rate to outscore Holzken over three hard fought rounds.

It will be interesting to see how the two fighters match style wise, and if Doumbe fights with more aggression after being outworked by Murthel in his last fight.
