Complete Glory 4 16-man Grand Slam fight night photo gallery from Japan

Check out a complete photos gallery for the GLORY 4 single-night, star-studded 16-man kickboxing tournament from Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on New Year's Eve, which took place earlier today.

In arguably the greatest tournament of heavyweight kickboxers in history, Semmy Schilt was the last man standing earlier this morning (Dec. 31, 2012) in the Glory 4 16-man Grand Slam event from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Schilt did not have an easy path either as the towering Dutchman went into the second round against all three of his opponents in the round of 16, the quarterfinals and in the semifinals, defeating Brice Guidon, Rico Verhoeven, Gokhan Saki and Daniel Ghita in succession to capture $400,000 and the Grand Slam Heavyweight belt.

The victories over Saki and Ghita were particularly impressive as they were the number two and three seeds in the tournament respectively.
