Forms GLORY World Series maintains six different weight classes. Fights take place both as single matches between two fighters (known as ‘superfights’) and as part of tournaments. Four-man tournaments are the standard, with eight-man tournaments also staged on occasion. The tournaments take one of two forms: either they are World Championship Tournaments, with the division‘s world title on the line, or they are ‘Contender’ tournaments, with the winner earning a spot in the next upcoming World Championship Tournaments.
Rankings Fighters are ranked according to a thorough point-system maintained by the GLORY World Federation that awards points to fighters based on their performances in tournaments and in single bouts. Ranking points allow fighters to climb their division and get into the positions which will gain them title shots and entry to the Contender and/or World Championship Tournaments. Points are gained primarily via participation in single fights which form part the GLORY Superfight Series cards.Rules GLORY World Series rules permit the use of punches, kicks and knee strikes. Clinching is extremely limited – no more than five seconds, and the clinch must be active – and there are no takedowns and no fighting on the floor.
Live Live events take place globally and in some of the world’s most prominent cities. London, Los Angeles, New York, Istanbul, Tokyo and Rome are among cities which have hosted GLORY World Series events.
