Three GLORY 35 Nice match-ups and four GLORY 35 SuperFight Series match-ups have now been announced for GLORY's return to France, taking place at Palais Nikaia on Saturday, Nov. 5.

On the heels of his back-and-forth battle with Robin van Roosmalen, reigning GLORY lightweight champion Sittichai (112-29-5, 30 KO) headlines GLORY 35 Nice, defending the belt against 25-year-old Armenian-Belgian challenger Marat Grigorian (48-9-2, 29 KO). The two met previously at GLORY 28 Paris in March, where the Thai fighter Sittichai won via unanimous decision.

In the co-headline bout, France's own Zinedine Hameur-Lain (56-13, 35 KO) takes on fellow light heavyweight contender Pavel "The Caiman" Zhuravlev (69-11, 25 KO), representing Ukraine. Following an incredible performance including two knockouts and a tournament win, Hameur-Lain took home both 'Fighter of the Night' and 'Knockout of the Night' post-fight bonuses at GLORY 32 Virginia in July.

GLORY 35 SuperFight Series will showcase the unification of GLORY's light heavyweight titles as champion Artem Vakhitov (16-5, 6 KO) and interim champion Zack "The Black Warrior" Mwekassa (15-3, 13 KO) square off for the undisputed light heavyweight championship.

Romanian heavyweight Benjamin "Mister Gentleman" Adegbuyi (25-4, 16 KO), currently ranked No. 2 in the division, meets No. 5 ranked Egyptian slugger Hesdy "Fighterheart" Gerges (49-17-1, 23 KO) as part of the one-night, four-man Heavyweight Contender Tournament at GLORY 35 Nice.

GLORY previously announced the other semifinal tournament bout between Jahfarr Wilnis (29-7-1, 8 KO) and Mladen Brestovac (50-11-1, 33 KO). The tournament winner at GLORY 35 Nice, having fought and been victorious twice in a single evening, will fight for the GLORY heavyweight world championship at a later date

Reigning GLORY lightweight champion Sittichai was forced to withdraw from the headline bout of GLORY 35 Nice. As a result, his world title fight with 25-year-old Armenian-Belgian challenger has been postponed and will now headline GLORY 36 Oberhausen on Saturday, Dec. 10.

Previously serving as the main event of GLORY 35 SuperFight Series, the unification of GLORY’s light heavyweight title will now top GLORY 35 Nice. Champion Artem Vakhitov (16-5, 6 KO) squares off against interim champion Zack “The Black Warrior” Mwekassa (15-3, 13 KO) for the undisputed light heavyweight championship
