The world’s top-ranked Lightweights will square off in GLORY’s World Championship Tournament that pits #1 ranked Dutch powerhouse Robin van Roosmalen (30-5-0, 19 KOs) against karate stylist and world #3 Davit Kiria (21-8-0, 6 KOs). On the other side of the bracket, #2 ranked technical stylist Giorgio Petrosyan (78-1-1, 35 KOs), considered one of kickboxing’s top pound-for-pound fighters, will face exciting and unorthodox Andy Ristie (39-3-1, 19 KOs), who currently occupies the #4 spot in GLORY’s rankings. The winner of the one-night tournament will be crowned GLORY Lightweight World Champion and claim a cash prize of $150,000, while the runner-up will receive $30,000.

GLORY 12 NEW YORK is headlined by a bi-coastal clash between GLORY Middleweight World Champion Joe ‘Stitch ‘Em Up’ Schilling (16-4-0, 10 KOs) of California and New York’s own, knockout artist Wayne Barrett (3-0-0, 3 KOs).

The evening’s co-headline bout features Heavyweight finishers in action, as Morocco’s Jamal ‘The Goliath’ Ben Saddik (24-3-0, 20 KOs) faces Australian puncher Ben ‘The Guvner’ Edwards (35-9-3, 31 KOs).
