GLORY 13 Weigh In Results: Headliners Aerts, Verhoeven set for Heavyweight showdown

The official weigh-ins for GLORY 13 took place at the Keio Plaza Hotel in Tokyo, Japan today, and GLORY officials have confirmed with Fight Sport Asia that all fighters hit their respective marks without any problems except Jerome Le Banner.

GLORY 13 takes place December 21st at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan. The event airs on tape delay on SPIKE TV beginning 9:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 p.m. PT.

Headlining the fight card will be all-time kickboxing great Peter Aerts’ in a retirement bout – opposite GLORY 11′s Heavyweight tourney winner, Rico Verhoeven. Also on the card is another Heavyweight fracas, between former “It’s Showtime” World Heavyweight champ Daniel Ghita and Suriname’s GLORY vet, Errol Zimmerman.

Finally, GLORY’s symbolic 4-man tournament will be on hand, where a quadruple of fighters will vie for the opportunity to contest for the promotion’s Welterweight crown. Tourney favorite Nieky Holzken will lock horns with Karapet Karapetyan, with Joseph Valtellini vs. Raymond Daniels makes up the second bracket.

GLORY Superfight series will commence prior to the GLORY 13 card and it features a line-up that’s probably more stacked.

Legends Remy Bonjasky and Jerome Le Banner will be in action, along with Artur Kyshenko, GLORY 8  Tournament champ Yuta Kubo, Hesdy Gerges, Ewerton Teixeira and Mixed Martial Arts’ Strikeforce vet Sergei Kharitanov among others. Since these bouts won’t be available in the United States until a few weeks after, fans catch all the action LIVE online here, commencing 2:30 a.m. ET, 11:30 p.m. PT.
