Another GLORY title fight has been announced for the Bellator MMA: "Dynamite" card on Sept. 19, 2015.
GLORY Featherweight Champion Gabriel Varga will defend his title against Serhiy Adamchuk in the kickboxing portion of the hybrid-combat sports card that will feature both a ring and cage inside SAP Center in San Jose, California.
The news was announced during the GLORY 23 telecast on Spike TV last night (Aug. 7, 2015).
Varga (26-2) defeated Mosab Amrani at GLORY 20 (April 3, 2015) at Dubai World Trade Centre to become the first Featherweight champion in the promotion's history. The Canadian has now won four straight fights, including the GLORY 17 four-man tournament.
Adamchuk (29-5) won his GLORY debut over Marat Grigorian via unanimous decision in Lille, France, on June 5, 2015. The Ukraine native is currently ranked No. 4 in GLORY's featherweight division.
The GLORY portion of the Bellator MMA: "Dynamite 1" card will be headlined by a Light Heavyweight title fight between Zack Mwekassa vs. Saulo Cavalari in a rematch of the GLORY 18 tournament final that saw Cavalari win via knockout in the third round.
The main event on the Bellator side is a 205-pound title fight between champion Liam McGeary and Tito Ortiz. There will also be a four-man, one-night tournament in the Light Heavyweight division that will feature Phil Davis, Linton Vassell, Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal and Emanuel Newton.
