GLORY 27 Chicago & GLORY Chicago Superfight Series – Results and Photo Galleries
By PDG Staff
On Friday, Feb. 26, GLORY hosted GLORY 27 Chicago and GLORY SuperFight Series Chicago from Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill. The five-fight card for GLORY 27 Chicago aired live on ESPN3 and was headlined by the GLORY Middleweight Championship between the champion Artem Levin and Simon Marcus. The fight was mainly decided by the referee Al Wichgers though instead of the two fighters. As the referee chose to deduct 2 points from Levin for clinching and scoring a knockdown when it appeared Marcus pushed Levin through the ropes. This lead to an irate Levin and his corner leaving the ring before the end of the third round, thus awarding Marcus the GLORY MW Title.
The highlight of the main card was Dustin Jacoby as he won his third GLORY Contender Tournament with two more impressive wins. The five-fight card for GLORY SuperFight Series Chicago aired live on UFC FIGHT PASS and was capped off by another dominating win for Joe Schilling.
