Tonight Marat Grigorian will go head to head with Sitsongpeenong to fight for the Lightweight belt at Glory 65 in Utrecht.
Yesterday were the official weigh-ins for tonights fight. Check out the video here:
Vengeance is on the mind Marat ‘The Armenian Devil’ Grigorian (60-11-1, 35 KO’s) as he heads into his third title challenge against defending champion Sitthichai ‘The Killer Kid’ Sitsongpeenong (122-30-5, 32) in the co-headline bout of the evening.
Their first title fight took place at GLORY 36 COLLISION when Sitthichai, fighting out Bangkok, Thailand, retained his title by way of a split-decision win after five rounds. They rematched at GLORY 57 SHENZEN in August last year and Sitthichai again came away with the split-decision win.
Grigorian’s team cried foul at the Shenzen decision, pointing out that the FightMetric stats showed their man outlanding the champion by some margin.
Their calls for a rematch began immediately and since then Grigorian, fighting out of Armenia by way of Belgium, has stayed in the #1 contender slot by beating former title challenger Chris Baya. The rivals now look for a definitive result in this trilogy title bout tonight.
