It’s another busy weekend for fight fans.
Tomorrow, UFC Fight Night 62 goes down in Virginia, televised by FOX Sports 1 at 1 pm ET. Two of the world’s top featherweights square off in the main event. It’s backed up by a match-up of two fringe lightweight contenders in the co-main, and the return of Julianna Peña on the undercard. Check out a preview here.
A couple of boxing events are tap too — with another edition of Premier Boxing Champions, airing at 3 pm ET from Quebec, looking like the standout. Watch out for that show’s main event, featuring lineal Light Heavyweight Champion Adonis Stevenson taking on former 154 titlist Sakio Bika. The other Marquis of Queensbury offering, a PPV from the odd BKB promotion (with its small “pit” replacing a ring, and bouts consisting of seven two-minute rounds), features Gabriel Rosado.
Some great action, sure. But, nothing compared to the star-studded kickboxing event from GLORY World Series tonight in Dubai, to be televised on SPIKE at 10 pm ET.
The GLORY 20 main event features two of the top three lightweights in the world: the promotion’s champion, Robin van Roosmalen, against former titlist Andy Ristie.
The co-main features two of the top five featherweights in the world, in Mosab Amrani vs. Gabriel Varga, for the vacant GLORY featherweight title.
The undercard is a middleweight contender’s tournament, featuring (…wait for it…) four of the division’s top ten in the world.

Is kickboxing the sport of the future, as the line goes from the old John Cusak movie? Maybe. You still have time to enter on the ground floor and catch the best fighters in the world on free TV. Don’t miss it.
Here’s a preview from our friends at GLORY:
