Earlier today, GLORY revealed that GLORY 11 Chicago would feature a massive (literally and figuratively) 4 man heavyweight tournament involving some of the top names in the division: Gohkan Saki, Daniel Ghita, Rico Verhoeven, and Anderson Silva.
Set for October, GLORY 11 will be the first ever kickboxing event broadcasted on mainstream American television channel Spike TV. It looks like GLORY is sparing no expense for their debut show.
While Gohkan Saki handily defeated Daniel Ghita at GLORY 6 Istanbul, adding the tournament factor into this event could have unexpected results. Obviously, this announcement quells rumors that Saki would be dropping to light heavyweight for the first time against Tyrone Spong.
