GLORY Kickboxing will celebrate a milestone next month when it stages its fiftieth arena event.
GLORY 50 will take place in the great city of Chicago, Illinois on Friday, February 16. It is a fitting location for the landmark event, given the huge support that Chicago has given GLORY on each of its four previous visits.
As we build up towards this watershed moment, we’ve taken a look back at GLORY history and selected fifty highlight moments which tell the story of the organization and illustrate what this sport is all about.
Stay tuned to GLORY social media to see a new moment each day between now and GLORY 50 CHICAGO!
