Have you ever seen a fight so entertaining that you literally cannot take your eyes off of it?
You just cannot believe that 2 humans can endure the savagery that comes with a real fight.
Two extremely skilled fighters that have spent their entire lives training for this very moment in time and in the heat of the action….both are swinging with violent intentions to hurt…and stop their opponents.
Both fighters standing within a highly dangerous range called “the pocket”….hard, stinging punches landing to the head, the ungodly pain of thudding kicks landing to the body, razor sharp elbows slicing up a sweaty face like a filet knife, the paralyzing effects of an opponent’s knee landing to the solar-plexus and of course the overwhelming and searing emotional pain that comes from losing a heated battle in front of all your friends and family.
This is the game we love…this is that heated moment that only certain people willing to walk up those eerie steps into the path of unbridled violence will take. They make that lonely walk for their coaches…their teammates….the friends and family that come see them…and of course, for themselves too.
We as fans look on the same way as watching an imminent tragedy about to happen in front of our very eyes…but we cannot look away. We see the skill levels of these athletes, the incredible cardiac output and their ability to impose their will on each other….and the most compelling component, the intestinal fortitude of two same sized humans that have no concept of accepting defeat as an option.
The result for one is nothing short of devastating heartache…..the result for the other is utter GLORY.
This is the kind of excitement that GLORY has brought to the eyes of fight fans across the planet. The incendiary violence that has created a fervor for watching the “standing style” of sport fighting has never been hotter.
GLORY has turned the fight world on its head by showcasing the best strikers in the world in a fast-paced and thrilling setting that has delivered some of the most mesmerizing knockouts we’ve ever seen.
If you are a fight fan and have not seen GLORY yet….you owe it to yourself to tune in on May 3rd here in Colorado at the 1st Bank Center. Denver will be showcasing some of its best and most exciting kickboxers when they compete in the local portion of GLORY 16.

We all know these incredibly talented fighters and come to watch them bring their best…the intensity levels will be through the roof and the excitement levels will bring us all memories to last a lifetime.
