An exciting heavyweight bout will co-headline the upcoming GLORY 79 event. The fight night will be headlined by a GLORY heavyweight championship battle between current champion Rico Verhoeven and former UFC and K-1 legend Alistair Overeem.
The event will be held on October 23 in Netherlands and the second most important fight will be a rematch between Jamal Ben Saddik vs Benjamin Adegbuyi.
The initial bout between those two was held back in 2018 and it was Ben Saddik who came on top in the end.
Romania’s Adegbuyi, 36, won both of his fights since then – an UD win over D’Angelo Marshal and a TKO against Badr Hari in 2020.
Ben Saddik, 30, hasn’t fought since his triumph against Benjamin. The Belgian-Moroccan was scheduled to fight against Rico Verhoeven last Ocotber, but pulled out of the fight several days before the bout due to back injury.
