GLORY’s PPV begins with the Last Man Standing middleweight tournament.

Levin is throwing a lot of leg kicks to start the round. The fighters are keeping the fight in the center of the ring. Both fighters are landing punches, in what appears to be a feeling out-round. Levin’s nose is bloodied.

Round 2: Levin is the busier fighter, timing Pereira with his kick. Levin is closing the distance and keeping him in range with his punches.  Levin is the aggressor. Pereira isn’t doing much.

Round 3:

Levin catches him with a kick and a punch to the head, then the stomach. Pereira can’t seem to keep up with Levin’s energy. He’s grabbing Levin when he gets close. Pereira slipped to the ground. Levin keeps holding him and kneeing him.

Pereira went for a big spinning back fist, but missed. Levin caught his with a straight left hand to end the round. Not a lot of action in the three-round fight.

Artem wins the fight by unanimous decision and advances to the next round of the tournament.
