GLORY: REDEMPTION is headlined by heavyweight world champion Rico "The King of Kickboxing" Verhoeven (51-10, 14 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) and No. 2-ranked Jamal "The Goliath" Ben Saddik (32-5, 26 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands), the principal participants in rivalry stemming back to 2011.
 
Standing 6'9" and weighing nearly 300 pounds, the Moroccan-Belgian knockout artist Ben Saddik made his professional debut opposite Verhoeven, defeating the future champion – 21 years old at the time – by TKO.
 
Since their first meeting, Verhoeven has become a larger-than-life figure, establishing himself the undisputed heavyweight kingpin and one of the most accomplished heavyweight kickboxers of all time. His run of dominance inside the GLORY ring includes a 13-fight winning streak and five title defenses against the world's best fighters.

No. 4-ranked light heavyweight Michael “Dreamcrusher” Duut (42-8, 29 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands) and Congolese striker Danyo "Dibuba" Ilunga (57-13, 44 KO, fighting out of Germany) meet in the co-headline bout, the rubber match of an instant-classic trilogy that includes 2016's Fight of the Year.

GLORY 49 SuperFight Series gets its headline bout, as newly crowned GLORY middleweight champion Alex 'Po Atan' Pereira (26-6, 16 KO, fighting out of Brazil) makes his first title defense. Challenging for the middleweight strap will be 25-year-old Dutch-Tunisian Yousri Belgaroui (23-3, 11 KO, fighting out of the Netherlands), the current No. 1 contender.

Pereira, who first appeared for GLORY back in 2014, seized his championship opportunity in October, wrestling the title away from then-champion Simon Marcus. A more recent addition to GLORY’s middleweight division, Belgaroui has worked his way through an impressive list of former champions and title challengers in that time, with a resume that includes wins over Jason Wilnis, Ariel Machado, and Pereira himself.
