WATCH: GLORY Fighter Lands Monster KO to Win Title

Are You Really a Combat Sports Fan if You Don’t Like Kickboxing? Glory 64 Was a Barnstormer… Check Out This For a KO Win…

Remember the name Cédric Doumbé. The Glory welterweight champion is a truly terrifying individual, possessing ferocious power and athletic dynamism. He fought Harut Grigorian last weekend and put on an emphatic performance to bring the championship home.

Glory is one of the most established professional kickboxing promotions out there. Joe Rogan can’t understand why the striking sport isn’t more popular than boxing, and neither can we. MMA fans complain when there’s too much grappling, so there’s an easy way to cut all of that out.

Check out the highlights below of Doumbé’s brilliant win over the former champion.

Power

Doumbe is well known for his power rather than his technique. He’s got a knockout victory over Nicky Holzen, who is now of the books of ONE Championship. He lost his first title shot to Murthel Groenhart, who then had it taken from him by Grigorian. Doumbe came back into contention and made no mistake in winning back his belt.

This was a devastating performance by Doumbe, who managed to get three knockdowns in the second round before the referee intervened to stop the fight. Grigorian had no answer for his power and ended up sprawled on the floor, counting stars. Three out of Doumbe’s last four wins have come via TKO, which just shows how brutally effective he is.

Iconic

Meanwhile, Grigorian is probably most famous for that fight against Murthel Groenhart, when he was knocked out after inexplicably turning away. It was totally legal as the referee hadn’t called a break to the action, and the result stood.

However, fans didn’t enjoy it and two of them stormed into the ring. If you haven’t seen that clip, watch it below as well. It’s an absolute classic. Doumbe looks likely to rematch against Alim Nabiev, who he has a split decision win over in the past. One thing is for sure: nobody will fancy getting close to those heavy fists. He’s a scary dude.
