GLORY, announced a world title rematch slated for GLORY 58 Chicago, taking place at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill., on Friday, Sept. 14.

Middleweight champion Alex "Po Atan" Pereira (28-6, 18 KO, fighting out of Brazil) will be facing a familiar opponent at GLORY 58 Chicago, squaring off against Simon "The One" Marcus (48-4-2, 27 KO, fighting out of Canada) in a rematch of their bout that took place 11 months prior.

Last year at GLORY 46 China, Pereira managed to upset then-champion Marcus, signifying the start of his title reign and reversing the foes' roles as champion and challenger.

In the time since, Pereira has defended the belt twice, with Yousri Belgaroui serving as the opponent on both occasions. His most recent victory over Belgaroui came by way of highlight-reel knockout at GLORY 55 New York in July.

Meanwhile, Marcus picked up two wins of his own since dropping the belt to Pereira. The two-fight streak began with a first-round TKO of Zack Wells in March and culminated with a decision over longtime rival Jason Wilnis earlier this month at GLORY 56 Denver.
