Glory 15 Results and Recap

Glory 15 took place earlier today in Istanbul, Turkey and fans were excited for the Glory Light Heavyweight Tournament. Tyrone Spong, Gokhan Saki, and Nathan Corbett were the big draws with Saulo Cavalari looking to cement his name among the best fighters in the world.

The semi-final bouts saw Spong and Cavalari fight three hard rounds. Spong was awarded the decision win, but Cavalari showed the world he was not someone to be taken lightly. The other semi-final bout came to a shocking end when Gokhan Saki scored a (T)KO over Nathan Corbett in the first round. A big left hook from Saki connected and Corbett was soon covered in blood from his ear.

The final of the tournament unfortunately was not what fans were looking for. Before things could heat up between Saki and Spong a gruesome injury took place. Spong threw a low kick which Saki lifted his leg to check and Spong’s leg snapped and he fell backwards to the canvas. With the injury Saki won the Light Heavyweight Tournament and was crowned the Glory Light Heavyweight Champion.

In other action on the night Robin van Roosmalen and Marat Grigorian fought a hard close fight that went to van Roosmalen although a case could be made that Grigorian should have gotten the win. Danyo Ilunga also scored a big knockout over Romanian Andrei Stoica in the first round of their bout. A counter right from Ilunga dropped Stoica who in return could not answer the referee’s count. A solid win for Ilunga against a name like Stoica.
