Two GLORY newcomers will be making their debuts at next week’s event in Paris.
In the heavyweight division, Croatia’s Antonio Plazibat (15-3, 1 KO’s) steps in to face France’s Nordine Mahieddine (23-8, 12 KO’s) following the withdrawal of Tomas Mozny due to injury.
And in the light-heavyweight division, Yegish Yegoian (31-8-2, 9 KO’s) of Armenia comes in to face Artur Gorlov (23-8, 10 KO’s).
Gorlov had originally been set to face Felipe Micheletti but the Brazilian was moved last week to the main card to face Luis Tavares.
Plazibat holds wins over GLORY veterans Bogdan Stoica and Daniel Skvor among others. In November he stopped another GLORY veteran, Michal Turynski, with a stunning jump knee.

Yegoian trains and fights out of Hemmers Gym, Netherlands, alongside his fellow Armenians Marat Grigorian and Harut Grigorian.
In February of this year he traveled to Russia to compete in the TATNEFT Cup, where he won his fight by way of knockout. That fight came after a near two-year layoff caused by injury.
GLORY 66 PARIS takes place Saturday, June 22 at the Zenith Paris – La Villette and is headlined by world welterweight champion Cedric Doumbé defending the title against top contender Alim Nabiyev.
