    Not like he was actively signed on or anything. Glory rankings generally don't mean much anyways.

    It amused me to see HIROYA was on their rankings for a while 5~7.

    I like how there are never news about which fighter was cut. You have to find out on your own by looking at their rankings.

    Doubt he had any sort of a contract for further fights.

    same with UFC and every org. Fighters prefer it that way; not good for their brand to have it officially announced they have been fired/dropped

    Gotta make room for JJ's master plan of filling Glory's ranks with US strikers competing in local smoker events...

    i wish Dana White was the face of GLORY just so i could listen to the spin he would put on a guy like Maurice whatshisname who got stopped on one leg kick by Xavier Vigney at Glory San Diego

    no disrespect to sergey at all - i enjoyed his company the brief time i spent with him years ago - but Rico would have embarrassed him at this stage of his career. Sergey now should really concentrate on marquee MMA fights for $

    Rico destroys him with leg kicks, but at least it's a possible matchup.

    Really, what potential matchups do we have at HW? Looking bleak. Everything outside of LW really.

    What's killing Glory for me is no real narrative. Just "here's a tournament". Fights need to be built and anticipated.

    huge problem, but Spike wont let them not do tournaments

    in an ongoing regular promotion, tournaments should be scrapped or reduced to twice -yearly affairs. The K-1 model was different, they only did a couple shows a year and tournaments were the be-all and end-all.

    for the likes of Glory and the UFC, a tournament gives you one winner and a load of losers and also deprives you of the opportunity to build a narrative as you say

    They could use the tournaments as a narrative and a way to build up fighters if they would not have all these breaks between fights. They should have a tournament winner fight for the title on the very next show like they did with simon marcus. Any time anyone builds momentum and has people talking glory kills it by not having them fights again for 4 to 6 months.

    That leaves us with only a adegbuyi immediate rematch and silva. Not to mention sergey knocked out silva in his last kb bout
