GLORY kickboxing will make its pay-per-view (PPV) debut this Saturday night (June 21, 2014) with "Last Man Standing," featuring a one-night, eight-man middleweight tournament, as well as an insane heavyweight headliner that pits Rico Verhoeven against Daniel Ghita.
That's not all.
Before the GLORY PPV gets underway, the promotion will air its GLORY 17: "Los Angeles" fight card LIVE on Spike TV at 8 p.m. ET, anchored by a heavyweight rematch pitting Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic opposite bitter vial Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller.

"I talked smack, he didn't like it, I fought him in his country, they jerked me around. So I'm gonna talk smack, fight him in my country, beat him again and get the right outcome. I'm not playing no games. I didn't come here all the way from New York to L.A. just to talk smack and not do my job. I'm gonna do what I do best and that's kick ass. If you don't like smack-talk, so what? That's part of the sport. This is a business. And I back up what I say. Coco-Cop is going down. Look out for it, it's coming."
"I am very honored to participate in this 'Last Man Standing' tournament. Here we have the best eight middleweights in the world. That makes it very special and what also makes it special is that this is GLORY’s first pay-per-view in America. So us eight guys are going to make history and we can help extend our sport here and worldwide. I feel like that is very special and that all eight fighters need to bear that responsibility and deliver a good fight, make this successful. That is our job."
"This is a huge opportunity and so was the tournament in December. It showed me that being a martial artist is what I really want and there is no stopping me. I feel I am the best fighter in the welterweight division. In a tournament anything can happen. In this fight you’re getting a fresh Valtellini and it is going to be a great fight on Saturday night."
