By Mike Sloan Sep 8, 2016
Glory, the world’s leading kickboxing promotion, will take over the Garden State Friday night as Glory 33: New Jersey will go down at Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J. Headlining the action will be the promotion’s heavyweight champion Rico Verhoeven will defend his title against Anderson “Braddock” Silva.

A four-man, same-night Featherweight Contender Tournament will round out the main card. In the first semifinal matchup, recently-dethroned champ Serhiy Adamchuk (33-6, 16 KOs) will look to rebound from his loss to Gabriel Varga at Glory 32 last month when he collides with Giga Chikadze (35-4, 21 KOs). On the other side of the bracket, Korea’s Chibin Lim (69-19, 40 KOs) will take on Matt Embree (37-7, 16 KOs).

At Thursday’s weigh-ins, Silva (40-14-1, 25 KOs) came in looking like the massive heavyweight he is; he officially tipped the scale at 248 pounds. Verhoeven (48-10-1, 12 KOs) was not to be outdone and looked as ready as ever. The champ clocked in at 261 pounds, clearing the final hurdle toward their title tilt.

The Glory 33 SuperFight Series will be anchored by the middleweight championship where Simon Marcus (44-2-2, 24 KOs) will put his title on the line against Jason Wilnis (28-6-, 7 KOs). Wilnis weighed 187 pounds on Thursday while Marcus came in at 186, setting the stage for their championship showdown.

The SuperFight Series undercard will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, followed by the Glory 33 main card, which will stream live on ESPN3 at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT.
