Three fights have today been confirmed for GLORY 11 CHICAGO. Signed bout agreements are in place for all three fights.
Former world-ranked #1 light-heavyweight Danyo Ilunga (53-5, 40 KO’s) will look to bounce back from his GLORY 9 tournament disappointment when he faces the hard-hitting Michael Duut (38-4, 17 KO’s) of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Ilunga, a student of Remy Bonjasky and equally prone to using his illustrious trainer’s trademark flying knee technique, won two consecutive fights in New York to book a spot in the final. He was then stopped by Tyrone Spong to take the tournament’s runner-up spot.
Duut came out of the tournament at #6 in the rankings and will crack the Top Five if he can score an impressive win. He looked to be on course for a big upset at GLORY 9 when he dropped Spong in the first round of their quarter-final fight, only for Spong to rebound instantly with a knockout blow of his own.
Gabriel Varga (22-2, 8 KO’s) is the son of a Shotokan Karate instructor and was a black belt by the age of sixteen. He has also spent extensive time in Thailand training the native art of Muay Thai. Varga has numerous national and international championships to his name and is 1-1 in GLORY after debuting in the 8-man featherweight slam tournament earlier this year.
Making his debut against Varga is Shane Oblonsky of Seal Beach, California, heading into what he calls “the biggest fight of my life”. Oblonsky arrives in GLORY having blasted his way through regional and international opposition, with numerous first- and second-round KO’s to his name.
British lightweight Reece McAllister (36-4-1, 12 KO’s) returns to the Glory World Series ring for the first time since beating Tim Thomas in his March debut. He will face Australian knockout artist ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Moxon (33-6-1, 22 KO’s). Moxon was originally set to face Gesias ‘JZ’ Cavalcante but the Blackzilians fighter has been forced to pull out with an injury.
GLORY 11 CHICAGO takes place at the Sears Center Arena, Hoffman Estates, Illinois on Saturday October 12.
The main card airs live and free on SPIKE TV and hosts a four-man heavyweight championship tournament featuring Gokhan Saki, Daniel Ghita, Anderson ’Braddock’ Silva and Rico Verhoeven.
People should not forghet that the best fighter in the super heavyweight category of Glory is Daniel Ghita

Brian "The Lion" Collette goes to war next Friday, November 7th, versus Zack Mwekassa in the semi-final round of our one-night, four-man Light Heavyweight tournament. Brian's seen what Zack is capable of versus Pat Barry, but he's not worried - and he believes his style of Taekwondo mixed with Muay Thai and kickboxing is going to lead him to a KO win, and move him on to the tournament final.

LIGHT UP THE DARKNESS,
YOU are the sports journalist. Using the comments section of each image, you must ask any of these four fighters a creative question – it can be about their background, their fighting style, their friends and family, or anything you think would make for a good story. The Glory team will run your questions to interview the four tournament fighters, and the best question wins the framed poster! Good luck…
Wicked day of training today! Started bright & early with some hard Strength & Conditioning with my trainer Duncan Comany, then jumped on the ferry with my teammate Bruce, from WKX, to head over to Victoria to spar with the future featherweight GLORY Sports International champ, Gabriel Varga! Long, busy day but felt great and can't wait to head out to Oklahoma for #GLORY18 next week!

The guy at 45" has a beard, and is from Georgia, and he looks a lot like ..... #GLORY Kickboxing Champion Davit Kiria????? GLORY Sports International
Brian Collette versus Zack Mwekassa in the Light Heavyweight Contender Tournament at #GLORY18 has all the makings of a true stylistic face off. Mwekassa is a powerhouse boxer-turned-kickboxer, while Collette's kickboxing style borrows elements from Taekwondo and Muay Thai.
Whichever way it ends up, Collette says he isn't phased by Mwekassa's boxing background, and he plans on finishing the fight by KO on Friday, November 7th.
