GLORY, the world’s premier Stand Up Fighting league, has today announced that it will begin a search for the next generation of Martial Arts fighting superstars to compete in its upcoming ‘ROAD TO GLORY’ fight series.

The ROAD TO GLORY series of events will identify new Martial Arts fight talent from various countries who will compete under GLORY rules, with competitors in six different weight divisions battling each other for a chance to earn a one year GLORY contract and fight in prestigious one-night tournaments with prize money of up to US $600,000.

ROAD TO GLORY will kick off with six events in the U.S. over the first five months of 2013. Each ROAD TO GLORY USA event will be comprised of a one-night, single-elimination, eight-man tournament in one of GLORY’s six different weight divisions, with fighters who hail from The U.S., and possibly Mexico, Canada and Brazil. The total prize money for each of these ROAD TO GLORY USA tournaments will be US$ 34,000, with the winner taking home US $20,000.

The champion of each ROAD TO GLORY tournament will also be offered a one-year contract to fight in GLORY, the world’s biggest Stand Up Fighting stage that is home to the best martial arts fighters on the planet.

Fighters between the ages of 19 and 28 who wish to be considered for a place in the ROAD TO GLORY fight series must email their bios (**Bios must include height, fighting weight, date of birth, city and state or province where fighting out of, gym affiliation, complete professional fighting record (if applicable), complete amateur fighting record (if applicable) and a video file or link to an online video containing fight footage from one or more previous bouts, to GLORY Ambassador and fighter relations executive Cor Hemmers at cor@gloryworldseries.com.

“Every fighter dreams of being a champion and ROAD TO GLORY is the first step on that path," says Hemmers, a renowned trainer of numerous world champions, including the legendary Ramon Dekkers and Alistair Overeem.

But, ROAD TO GLORY is not open only to athletes from kickboxing or Muay Thai backgrounds. Competitors from boxing, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Karate, Taekwondo, Capoeira, and Kung-Fu backgrounds are also encouraged to participate. This series is open to any athlete who believes in himself and is confident he has what it takes to succeed in GLORY,” Hemmers said.
