After the staggering news of Joseph Valtellini relinquishing his GLORY Welterweight Championship it was announced today that the title won't be vacant for long. On August 7th in Las Vegas Nieky Holzken will vie for the championship against Raymond Daniels in a rematch from the GLORY contender tournament that Holzken won. 
The event is GLORY 23 and is set for August 7th at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas and will be airing live on Spike TV. Raymond Daniels has had some solid exposure on Spike TV and it should make for an interesting bout for the ever-evolving Daniels against the consensus top dog in the division in Holzken.

About time they give Holzken his belt back. Now all they need to do is give Petrosyan a chance to win his belt

Daniels is a hell of an athlete, but the only times he's actually fought a top fighter in Glory, he's been blown out both times. I expect the Holzken rematch to be no different.

Daniels looks good fighting top 20 guys .... he's not top 10 and his style will never make him top 10

Heavyweight fight between Xavier Vigney(8-1, 8 KO’s) and Daniel Sam(25-10, 13 KO’s) added as Glory  23 co-main event a battle of two massive Heavyweights. Vigney looked good in his tournament win at Glory 21, while Sam brings in a lot of experience and represents the perfect test for the still developing Vigney.

For the tournament portion of the show, we turn to the Middleweight division for an all-American tournament. Dustin Jacoby(4-6, 3 KO’s) is the biggest name fighter here - Jacoby has been active in both Glory and Bellator in the past few years. He comes in off a decision loss to veteran Mourad Bouzidi where Jacoby acquited himself quite well.He will faces newcomer Ariel Sepulveda (4-1, 1 KO) of New York in the first of the semi-final matches.

Casey Greene (2-4, 1 KO’s) of Los Angeles, California, last seen at GLORY 21 SAN DIEGO, also faces a debutant as he takes on Quinton O’Brien (2-0) of St. Louis, Missouri.

Also included will be the Glory Superfight Series. Announced for that so far is an excellent fight pitting former K-1 MAX GP champion Murthel Groenhart(55-16, 31 KO’s) against Chad Sugden(13-3, 3 KO’s).
