If I purchase the monthly subscription do I get Dream.18? Phone Post

Eunuchorn - This is the k1 tourney in spirit.

its minimum two vintage K1 tourneys in one, and about seven current K-1 standard tourneys in one. The depth of talent on this card in ONE NIGHT is absolutely insane. Its a guaranteed deliverer of KO after KO - eg, definitely Ghita, Saki, Aerts, Kharitonov are all going to spark their first-round opponents imo - and anyone who hasn't watched a kickboxing event like this before is going to be absolutely blown away; the whole tournament is 15 fights and i reckon at least 60%+ will be a stoppage.

Marcus,

1. Can you tell us anything about plans for the US market, with live shows and television etc?

2. Semmy Schilt is Glory Heavyweight Champion; who is next in line for a title shot? Does it depend on who stands out in the tournament on Dec 31? Does the Tyrone Spong/Remy Bonjasky fight on March 16 have any implications?

3. Has the US got talent to compete in a sport dominated by the Dutch/Europeans?

4. Is GLORY going to be expanding beyond kickboxings flagship Heavyweight and Lightweight (70k) divisions? Theres a lot of talent at light-heavy and middleweight, for example. K1 were never interested because the Japanese like giants and people their own size but for the rest of the world there's some top talent out there.

cheers

What will separate Glory from other orgs?

Will you plan on growing an US talent organically?

How much input does Bas have on day to day affairs?

Really looking forward to the show, congrats! Phone Post

Thats retarded they are airing it not only on delay but two different nights?

WTF? I see on my guide they have 2 4 hour blocks each night, why isnt the entire card being aired the next day back to back over 8 hours?

Why do 4 hours one night, then a replay and the same the next night? I could understand if they only had a 4 hour block each night but they are replaying each event right after so they have an 8 hour block both nights. Why not just do the whole event one night?

Do you feel that Zuffa, UFC Inc have a 'monopoly' ? Or are they just doing mma better than everyone else at this moment in time ?

Also, from an employee standpoint, not management, do you think all fighters would benefit from a 'fighters' union representation ?

Hey Marcus - What fighting discipline do you feel is the single best to train in for someone who wants to become a Glory champ?

So many assumptions on these Road to Glory tournaments. Rumors are not so accurate.

I have one can we expect a 16 man slam style tournament for other weight divisions as well? Phone Post
