GLORY’s year-end show, to be broadcast live from Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands on Saturday, December 9. In a year slated to feature a record number of shows, the highly anticipated return to the New York market, plus an inaugural event in mainland China, the global kickboxing leader will cap off their 2017 campaign with a four-bout Pay-Per-View event headlined by heavyweight champion Rico “The King of Kickboxing” Verhoeven (51-10, 14 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) going up against the No. 2-ranked Jamal “The Goliath” Ben Saddik (32-5, 26 KO, who fights out of the Netherlands. Standing 6’9″ and weighing nearly 300 pounds, the Moroccan-Belgian knockout artist Ben Saddik made his professional debut opposite Verhoeven, defeating the future champion – 21 years old at the time – by TKO.

Since their first meeting, Verhoeven has become a larger-than-life figure, establishing himself as the undisputed heavyweight champ and one of the most accomplished kickboxers of all time. His run of dominance inside the GLORY ring includes a 13-fight winning streak and five title defenses against the world’s best.

Former welterweight champ Nieky “The Natural” Holzken (90-13, 46 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands), on the mend after suffering a leg injury that forced him from the GLORY 45 Amsterdam card, has been added, meeting an opponent to be named later.

GLORY: REDEMPTION will be preceded by five-fight cards for both GLORY 49 SuperFight Series and GLORY 49 Rotterdam. GLORY 49 SuperFight Series will be headlined by top-10 heavyweights, as hard-hitting Ismael “Mr. Pain” Londt (39-7-1, 18 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) takes on Curaçaoan-Dutch striker D’Angelo Marshall (16-2, 8 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands).

GLORY 49 Rotterdam will be broadcast prior to the GLORY 49 SuperFight Series which is slated to feature a welterweight world title fight, plus a one-night, four-man lightweight tournament, and a lightweight bout between Armenian-Belgian Marat Grigorian (51-10-2, 32 KOs) of the Netherlands vs Angola’s Christian “Bad News” Baya (59-5-1, 34 KOs) fighting out of the Netherlands. Additional bouts to be announced.
