New York, NY – GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, today announced the nearly-finalized fight card for GLORY 30 SuperFight Series, airing live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass from Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif. on Friday, May 13.
Top middleweight contender and hometown favorite Joe “Stitch ‘Em Up” Schilling (21-6, 12 KO) returns to the site of his classic one-night tournament title at GLORY 10, facing 25-year-old Dutch-kickboxing phenom Jason “Psycho” Wilnis (27-6-1, 7 KO). This fight is a rematch of the headline bout at GLORY 24 last year, which resulted in a TKO victory for Schilling after a foot injury rendered Wilnis unable to continue.
Co-headlining the SuperFight Series card, 6’9″ British bruiser “Chopper” Chi Lewis-Parry (6-1, 2 KO), now fighting out of the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, throws down with powerful UFC veteran Guto Inocente (29-7, 16 KO) in the heavyweight division. Lewis-Parry is returning to action for the first time since GLORY 21, while Brazil’s Inocente is coming off the winning end of a highlight reel knockout at GLORY 27 earlier in the year.
To round out the card, San Diego’s Mike Lemaire (17-8, 7 KO) and prospect Karl Roberson of New Jersey meet at middleweight, while California-native Manny Mancha (2-1, 2 KO) welcomes veteran light-heavyweight Warren “Destroyer” Thompson (10-4-1, 2 KO) back to the GLORY ring.
Kicking off GLORY 30 SuperFight Series on UFC Fight Pass, newly-signed striking sensation Tiffany “Time Bomb” van Soest (12-2-1, 5 KO) comes home to California for her GLORY debut. Jeri Sitzes, her originally booked opponent, was forced to withdraw and a new opponent will be named shortly.
