On Friday the 13th of May, 2016 – GLORY hosted GLORY 30 Los Angeles and the GLORY 30 SuperFight Series from Citizens Business Bank Arena just outside Los Angeles, California. The evening started with GLORY 30 SuperFight Series as Manny Mancha took on Warren Thompson. Middleweights were up next as Mike Lemaire faced off against Karl Roberson, as both fighters were looking to move up the GLORY MW Rankings. The women made their GLORY debut next as the first fight of the recently announced GLORY Women’s Super Bantamweight Grand Prix Tournament took place when Muay Thai and kickboxing thrasher and sex symbol Tiffany van Soest battled a very young but gutty Esma Hasshass. The co-main event of the SuperFight Series featured five-time Brazilian Kickboxing Champion and UFC veteran Guto Inocente squaring off with Brian Douwes. The main event was a grudge fight with Joe Schilling and Jason Wilnis, in what could have been Schilling’s last fight under the GLORY banner. The five-fight card for GLORY 30 SuperFight Series aired live on UFC FIGHT PASS.
The five-fight card for GLORY 30 Los Angeles aired live on ESPN3 and featured the Welterweight Contender Tournament with Francois Ambang, Daniel Morales, Richard Abraham and Casey Greene vying for a shot at the title. In the co-main event, the always destructive Marat Grigorian looked to get back on track after losing at his last GLORY appearance against Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong at GLORY 28, as he faced off with fellow top-ten ranked fighter Djime Coulibaly. In the main event, newly crowned GLORY champion Simon Marcus looked to defend his belt for the first time against Dustin Jacoby, who was riding a five-fight win streak, all via knockout, coming into the fight.
