Melvin Manhoef is a destroyer, plain and simple. The guy has been fighting for years and has fought some of the best Heavyweights in Kickboxing and MMA. Finally it looks like Melvin Manhoef will be fighting in the proper weight class in GLORY’s Middleweight division. He’s been announced for GLORY’s Last Man Standing PPV for a while now, but there have yet to be any match announcements until today.
GLORY announced today that Melvin Manhoef will square off against Filip Verlinden in the first round of the GLORY Last Man Standing Middleweight Title tournament. Verlinden is a solid hand and good technician, which should be a proper foil for Melvin Manhoef’s heavy hands and aggressive, Mike’s Gym style.
GLORY Last Man Standing PPV airs on Saturday, June 21st at 10pm following GLORY 17 on Spike TV.
