Light Heavyweight Grand Prix Draw

  • News
  • May 14, 2024

This Friday, May 17, the draw for the upcoming GLORY Light Heavyweight Grand Prix will take place live from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where the quarter-final matchups will be decided.

Fans can tune to watch live on the official GLORY YouTube channel where the eight best light heavyweights on the planet take to the stage for this unpredictable draw that will be sure to create some shocking moments and maybe some controversy.

The draw will be both random and tactical, where fighters will call out and challenge others and the option to stand-up or leave it to fate will be given.

All eight fighters will select a number at random. The number selection process will be determined by the official GLORY rankings with top ranked fighter selecting their number at random first.聽

The fighter who draws number one will then be placed in the first quarter-final of the night and, more importantly, will have the opportunity to challenge an opponent. The challenged fighter can then either accept or reject the fight.

If accepted, the fight is then set. If rejected, an opponent will then be chosen at random from all remaining fighters not matched at that point, including the fighter who opted to reject that fight.

The process is repeated then until all four quarter-finals are fixed. Who will challenge who? Which fighter will accept or reject? How will the tournament bracket look? Find out this Friday!
