Another outstanding night of kickboxing is under wraps. GLORY 81 produced yet another spectacle for its fans worldwide and once again reminded everybody who is the number 1 striking promotion in martial arts.

GLORY 81 was headlined by the exciting and long-awaited rematch between GLORY heavyweights Jamal Ben Saddik and Benjamin Adegbuyi.

Ben Saddik and Adegbuyi first met at GLORY 62 Rotterdam during a memorable one-night, eight-man heavyweight tournament.

The top two seeds faced each other in the tournament final, with Ben Saddik claiming the tournament crown after defeating Adegbuyi by KO despite a broken right hand.

While Adegbuyi believes Ben Saddik had the easier path to the finals and won their bout simply because he was the fresher fighter, Ben Saddik believes he’s at a different level.

Here are the official results of GLORY 81 at the CASTELLO in Düsseldorf, Germany, on August 20th, 2022:
