In the main event of GLORY 74 Arnhem Alex Pereira defends his middleweight title against challenger Ertugrul Bayrak. Also on the card Massaro Glunder and Mohammed Jaraya square off in the rematch at lightweight. On Wednesday the promotion announced four additional matchups via a post on Instagram.

Among the bouts, riding the six-fight win streak Asa Ten Pow (11-1, 5 KO) faces Zakaria Zouggary (32-5-1, 16 KO) in a three-round featherweight battle.

In his previous outing in September Ten Pow earned a unanimous decision against Bailey Sugden. Zouggary is fresh off the win by knockout 20 seconds in the first round against Abdellah Ezbiri.

As well, former light heavyweight title challenger Ariel Machado (47-9, 34 KO) squares off against Michael Duut (43-12, 20 KO).

Machado hasn’t fought in GLORY Kickboxing since he dropped a unanimous decision against the division’s champion Artem Vakhitov in October 2017. Duut lost two of his previous bouts by unanimous decision against Luis Tavares and split decision against Donegi Abena. Before that he stopped Mourad Bouzidi in the third round.

In addition, Jahfarr Wilnis (32-12-1, 8 KO) and Antonio Plazibat (17-3, 11 KO) do battle at heavyweight.

Wilnis lost his previous bout in July by unanimous decision against D’Angelo Marshall. Prior to that he took a split decision against Tomas Mozny. Plazibat won two of his recent outings by unanimous decision against Mozny and Nordine Mahieddine.

GLORY has also announced a renewed contract with Donovan Wisse (14-1, 8 KO), who faces the promotional new-comer Cesar Almeida at middleweight.

Other matchups and fight order is expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The announced to date list of bouts can be found below.
