Light Heavyweight Tournament Final: Zack Mwekassa vs. Saulo Cavalari
GLORY Lightweight World Title: Robin van Roosmalen (R5 – Majority Decision) — What a fun fight. Kiria tends to start off a bit slow, but he was landing single, clean shots against van Roosmalen. It was easy to score the first two rounds for Robin, but then in round three a huge right hand put Robin down. Round four was a close round, almost impossible to figure out which guy should get it, but Robin was landing more shots thoughout and in the fifth round was in control, securing the fight and the championship.
Jason Wilnis (R3 – Decision) Wayne Barrett — This fight went into the opposite direction that everyone suspected that it would. Barrett came out strong, but Wilnis was able to overpower him, knocking him down a few times in R2 and once in R3 but Barrett surviving to the end.
Semifinal: Saulo Cavalari (R3 – Decision) Danyo Ilunga — This was a messy, messy fight that saw Cavalari land more clean shots while Ilunga struggled to do much of anything.
