GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, today announced the finalized headline bout for GLORY 22, taking place at Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille, France on Friday, June 5.

GLORY's Heavyweight World Championship is on the line as Rico "The Prince of Kickboxing" Verhoeven (45-10, 11 KOs) of the Netherlands defends his belt against powerful Romanian Benjamin "Mister Gentleman" Adegbuyi (18-2, 13 KOs).

Verhoeven is riding a seven-fight win streak in GLORY, with the last victory coming via TKO over Errol Zimmerman at GLORY 19 in February. Adegbuyi, on a three-fight GLORY win streak himself, was originally scheduled to face Anderson Silva at GLORY 21 on May 8, but an injury during the final preparations of fight camp forced him off the card.

Mladen Brestovac of Croatia was lined up to replace Adegbuyi against Silva but licensing issues meant the fight had to be scrapped. With no opponent, Silva is also now off the card. GLORY Superfight Series 21 will be headlined by Mike

One of the better looking Glory cards in recent times. They've been kinda lackluster lately tbh.

^Yeah, it's a good one. Good to have LHWs and HWs in the co-main event and main event.

It's a real shame what has happened to kickboxing. There are still some good fights, but shows as a whole aren't intriguing like they used to be. Still better than MMA though.

Anybody watch the superfight series?
-Grigorian lost a close dec. Not sure I agree
-Yoann Kongolo somewhat disappointed today. I liked his style in Super Kombat. Hopefully it was just an off day for him because he can be exciting
-Any word on why Freddy Kamayo didn't fight? I as hoping to see him vs that terrorist Jamal Ben Saddik

Heavy knee from Sittichai KO's Kiria to the body. Good fight.

Sitthichai is a beast, can't wait to see him fight van Roosmalen.

I also liked Rico Verhoeven in this fight, Adegbuyi is very dangerous and Rico dominated, his lowkicks are brutal.

Would like to see Adegbuyi vs Zimmerman next
