GLORY Kickboxing updated the fight card for the March 9 event in Strasbourg, France.
The revised fight card packs a serious wallop, with a welterweight clash between former champion Murthel Groenhart and top contender Alim Nabiyev announced as the GLORY 64 Superfight Series main event.
French knockout artist Zinedine “Good Boy” Hameur-Lein returns against Artur Gorlov in another Superfight Series contest. Hameur-Lein will attempt to rebound from a disappointing loss to Felipe Micheletti at GLORY 60 in October. Gorlov lost a close decision to Luis Tavares at GLORY 62, a bout some thought he won. In the other Superfight Series light heavyweight bout, top-ranked Michael Duut and number two contender Donegi Abena clash, with the winner in line for a title shot against division kingpin Artem Vakhitov.
Arian Sadikovic, the exciting Germany-based Bosnian who has competed for Mix Fight Gala, makes his GLORY kickboxing debut. Sadikovic faces Mike “The French Rock” Lemaire, the French-born fighter who resides in sunny San Diego and trains out of the Art of Eight gym. The hard-hitting Sadikovic will look to make a splash in his first Glory outing, while Lemaire will look for a triumphant homecoming.
Aleksei Ulianov will headline the GLORY 64 Prelims portion of the event. The talented Russian fighter faces Massaro Glunder, a Mike Passenier disciple based in Holland.
