Does Glory test for steroids at all?
I actually like that they got bigfoot but put him against some fat Chinese guy not Rico.
to lazy to find the source but his trainer basically said he's back on the TRT because it's China and nobody gives a shit.
He still doesn't stand a chance and definitely doesn't deserve to fight Rico as his first KB fight...
If anything he should have been put in some kind of contender tournament with the other US HW cans.
What is there to like about BigFoot fighting in KB?
He's way past his prime and it's not like he has a massive following of fans...
He does have the combination of being reasonably well known to MMA fans though and also most likely not costing a massive amount to book.
He was costing between $75k and $100k to book in the UFC, that's much higher than a typical Kickboxer's cost. Not sure how much he's worth now or how much Glory is booking him for though but I can only imagine it's much more than their average fighters.
Let's quit beating around the bush... this fight sucks, and its lame.
Glory is running out of fights to make. Not just HW, period.
The last two events were barely watchable.
@JimGunn come at me bro!
I'm guessing he's probably getting less than in the UFC but I didn't say he was beign paid peanuts, just that he's likely cheaper than most other people of similar status(as inHW's known to MMA fans) Glory might potentially hire, maybe Frank Mir for example.
Its most likely that crossover attraction Glory is after hoping MMA fans tune in, see Verhoeven destroy him and then potentially stick around for future fights.
I didn't even watch the last 2 events, and I'm a Glory fan... However Glory 45 Amsterdam should be good
I can't disagree that the Rico vs Bigfoot fight booking is a weird move. I'll still watch it though- after all I watch whatever oddball MMA matchups get made in promotions like Rizin FF too. I personally loved the last two Glory cards seeing as I was completely entertained by them before, during and after the fights. Doesn't hurt that I also won over three thousand bucks picking winners and betting the fights on just these two cards. The Amsterdam card coming up looks like fun to me too.
I like it because I was really into MMA when Bigfoot was at his peak and it would have a lot of novelty value to see him vs the Steve Banks of KB. He is a shadow of himself but he is still big, powerful, athletic, TRT-infused and knows how to compete. Putting him against Rico makes no sense of course though.
It's good by comparison but let's be honest that is what the regular cards should look like. That is a regular ass lookin' card, not a super card.
@JimGunn your gambling addiction is blinding your perception.
Nah. I enjoy even the lesser Glory cards irrespective of any wagering. I think of them as a nice treat once per month or so in between the MMA and other stuff I watch. It really doesn't matter if any particular card is the greatest card ever or just run of the mill. Why be angry? It's free entertainment as far as I am concerned and I'm glad to have it.
I'm not coming from a standpoint of anger so I hope that isn't what is being reflected in my posting. Just more stuck in a state of MEH with what Glory has been able to do lately. It's just bland as fuck. I'm not angry at a ham & cheese sandwhich, but Im not going to pretend it's a Cuban sandwhich.
I don't watch much MMA anymore so I can't look at Glory like it's a good side dish. This shit needs more seasoning.
big foot by ko
Hope Rico murks him with a headkick.
Who does Rico spar with?
Benny and sometimes Tyson Fury. Other too of course but those are the guys I have seen mentioned.
I will forgive them for setting up Zaharias vs Glunder. One of the few interesting fights Glory has set up this year
