Lyon, France 26 October 2019 GLORY 70 was staged at the Palais des Sports de Gerland. Murthel Groenhart was scheduled for another shot at the Glory Welterweight title against Cedric Doumbe but the Frenchman withdrew with an elbow injury so Groenhart faced American Troy Jones who accepted the match in 12 days’ notice for the Glory Interim Welterweight title. Groenhart knocked-out Jones in the second to win the Interim belt and now looks forward to a rubber-stamp unification match with Cedric Doumbe. Glory kickboxing is sanctioned and regulated by the ISKA.
