GLORY kickboxing coming to Spike TV in fall 2013

MMAmania

Bellator MMA is getting some combat sports company on the Spike TV airwaves.

Spike TV is serious about its commitment to combat sports programming.

Once the home of select Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events, the cable television network now airs Bellator MMA after ZUFFA parted ways with the Viacom family to sign with FOX network in late 2011. In addition, Spike also airs "Fight Master" (episode two recap here) and the upcoming "MMA Rescue" featuring Randy Couture.

Now, it's taking on the world of kickboxing.

"We are thrilled to partner with GSI in bringing Spike TV's audience the incredible action and intensity of GLORY's fight league, which feature the best kickboxers in the world," said Jon Slusser, Senior Vice President, Sports and Multiplatform Programming. "Viewers will quickly see this as the perfect complement to our coverage of Bellator, the world's leading tournament-based MMA promotion."

It's about time.

GLORY, fresh off its New York City tournament on June 22 (results here), will air two-hour events in prime time on select Saturday nights as part of a multi-year partnership, which means stateside audiences will get to know top striking specialists like Tyrone Spong, Gokhan Saki, Giorgio Petrosyan, Daniel Ghita and Peter Aerts, among others.

Semmy Schilt may want to re-think his retirement.
