GLORY World Series returns to the United States with GLORY 16. Instead of coming to the Big Apple like the previous two GLORY shows in the states, GLORY will travel west to Denver, Colorado at the 1st Bank Center.

The card features a heavyweight tournament featuring big names in the world of combat sports including a welterweight title fight.

Originally set for GLORY 15, a heavyweight bout between Errol Zimmerman and Ben Edwards has been shifted to this card to serve as one half of the tournament. The other side is a bout between Sergey Kharitonov and Anderson Silva.

A tournament reserve bout is also on the card and features former UFC fighter Pat Barry’s GLORY debut. Barry left mixed marial arts to pursue his love for the striking game and has found a great home to do so.

The welterweight tournament bout will feature GLORY 13 welterweight tournament winner Nieky Holzken against #5 ranked Marc de Bonte, to crown a definitive champion.

GLORY 16 will air on SPIKE TV at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on May 3rd.
