Rico Verhoeven vs Jamal Ben Saddik
Glory Redemption takes place on Saturday December 9 at Ahoy Rotterdam. The event follows last year’s Glory Collision held in German Oberhausen, featuring Rico Verhoeven up against Badr Hari.
On the day of Glory 46 China last Saturday in Guangzhou, the organization announced that the four-fight pay-per-view card of the upcoming show will be streamed live on UFC.TV. In addition the event will be broadcast by select cable and satellite providers.
In the main event the reigning heavyweight champion Dutch Rico Verhoeven (51-10, 14 KO) faces No.3 ranked Moroccan Jamal “The Goliath” Ben Saddik (32-5, 26 KO) in defense of the belt. The bout is also a rematch after their first encounter in 2011 when the latter took the second round TKO victory.
The co-main event is a light heavyweight match between Dutch Michael Duut (42-8, 29 KO) and Congolese Danyo Ilunga (57-12, 44 KO). Other bouts featured on the card are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Glory Redemption is preceded by five-fight cards for both Glory 49 Super Fight Series and Glory 49 Rotterdam. The next event is Glory 47 Lyon held on Saturday October 28 in France.
