James Law GLORY Sports International

GLORY: "Last Man Standing" lived up to its promise of delivering an action-filled night among the middleweight division at The Forum in Inglewood, California last weekend. The tournament was filled with high drama, exciting chess matches and two highlight-reel knockouts.

Read our full recap here.

Two of the eight men that were in that tournament: the runner up and now No. 1-ranked GLORY middleweight Joe Schilling and the No. 3-ranked GLORY middleweight, Filip Verlinden, will be guests on Episode 37 of "Darce Side Radio," and Stets will break down all the action that took place.

Also on this week's show, Lion Fight women's featherweight Tiffany Van Soest will stop by to preview her Lion Fight 16 matchup against Sindy Huyer.

Schilling will share experiences from each of the three fights he was in at GLORY "Last Man Standing," details on how banged up he is (it's a long list), his hope for "performance" and "fight of the night bonuses" making their way to  GLORY, how his two sons reacted to his fights, the possibility of a third fight with Levin, and how he feels about America's place in the sport.

Verlinden will come on to discuss the first-round victory over Melvin Manhoef, the semifinal loss to Levin, his experience of winning a fight in three different weight classes in GLORY and participating in a tournament in each of them. Also, looking back at the beginnings of his career and being influenced by Jean-Claude Van Damme and the movie Kickboxer, while growing up in Belgium.

Van Soest joined the show to talk about her Lion FIght 16 matchup against Sindy Huyer that will be part of UFC International Fight Week on July 4th, how she dealt with losing her title to Caley Reece at Lion Fight 13, surfing, the mentality of women fighters, and the growing popularity of Muay Thai and kickboxing.
