Former UFC heavyweight Mirko Cro Cop will step inside the kickboxing ring in 2014 under the banner of GLORY.

Cro Cop won the K-1 2013 World Grand Prix after taking a brief hiatus from kickboxing. The 39-year-old owns a kickboxing record of 22-7, while he went 28-11-2 in his MMA career.

During his professional fight career, Cro Cop has won the PRIDE Open-Weight title, was a runner-up in the K-1 tournament and went 4-6 inside the Octagon.

GLORY, which will be hosting a card Saturday night on Spike TV from New York, was founded in 2012. Cro Cop is expected to headline the March 8 card from Croatia.
