Rico Verhoeven puts his title as the world’s greatest kickboxer and reigning GLORY heavyweight champion on the line this Saturday when he faces Jamal Ben Saddik in the main event of GLORY: Redemption.
The card takes place from Rotterdam, Netherlands and airs live on UFC.TV.
Saddik, who stands 6-9 and weighs 270 pounds, picked up a victory over Verhoeven back in 2011 via second round TKO when his corner stopped the fight. Since, Verhoeven has posted a record of 21-4, including eight in a row.
Along with Verhoeven-Saddik, Michael Duut takes on Danyo Ilunga in a rematch of a bout many viewed as the best fight of 2016, and Anderson Silva faces off against Xavier Vigney for a future title shot in the heavyweight division.
The event begins at 4 p.m. ET.
