Hesdy Gerges cut from Glory, sentenced to 54 months in jail following cocaine conviction

It  may be some time before we see Heavyweight kickboxer Hesdy Gerges fighting again. The fighter, along with four other associates, has just been sentenced for a 2010 drug arrest, and the results are not good. Gerges has been sentenced to 54 months in prison, plus a fine of 22,000 Euros. Gerges plans to appeal, telling Amsterdam news outlet AT5, "I will fight until the bitter end." If the appeal does not go through, it's still possible Gerges could serve less time, but he would certainly still be looking at a considerable amount of time behind bars.

As a result of this sentencing, Bloody Elbow has learned that Gerges has been cut from Glory, effective immediately. Glory CEO Jon Franklin confirmed the news to Bloody Elbow:

"Hesdy Gerges has been cut from the GLORY roster and removed from its rankings. GLORY does not tolerate any type of illegal activity and will remove athletes that violate our code of conduct in or out of the ring."


Gerges was last seen at Glory 18, where he lost to Benjamin Adegbuyi. The 30 year old Egyptian-Dutch fighter holds a record of 45-14-1 and was 2-2 in Glory. He is a former It's Showtime champion who holds wins over Badr Hari, Daniel Ghita, and Ruslan Karaev.

Damn that's pretty much it for his career then, unless the appeal goes wel but that's doubtful, 128 kilo's isn't nothing. He claims to be not guilty, so keep fighting Hesdy.
