Former interim GLORY light heavyweight champion Zack "The Black Warrior" Mwekassa (15-4, 13 KO) returns in the night's first tournament semifinal scrap, looking to improve upon his No. 3 ranking against French knockout artist Zinedine "Good Boy" Hameur-Lain (56-14, 35 KO). Hameur-Lain, currently ranked No. 6 in the division, is a former contender tournament winner attempting to climb back into title contention.

Mere weeks removed from his 2016 Fight of the Year performance against Michael Duut, dynamic Congolese-German striker Danyo "Dibuba" Ilunga (57-10, 44 KO) takes on Brazil's Ariel Machado (43-8, 33 KO) in a tournament semifinal clash paring the No. 8 and No. 7 light heavyweights respectively.

In the headline bout of GLORY 38 SuperFight Series, taking place immediately before GLORY 38 Chicago, No. 1 heavyweight contender Benjamin "Mister Gentleman" Adegbuyi (27-4, 16 KO) of Romania finally crosses paths with world No. 9 Anderson "Braddock" Silva (40-15-1, 25 KO) of Brazil.

Another heavyweight hailing from Romania will be featured in the co-headline bout as newcomer Cătălin "The Carpathian Death" Moroșanu (42-10, 25 KO) stands toe-to-toe with 6'7" American kickboxer Maurice "The Pirate" Greene (4-3, 2 KO) at heavyweight. Chi Lewis-Parry, Moroșanu's original opponent, was forced to withdraw from the card and has been replaced by Greene.
