United Glory announced today that it will be postponing its planned October “World Series” event until December and that the first show of the 2011-2012 kickboxing and MMA tournament, which will happen in Moscow, will feature Golden Glory standouts Semmy Schilt, Sergei Kharitonov, Siyar Bahadurzada and Errol Zimmerman.

Chances are that you knew about the United Glory Tournament Finals that took place yesterday in Moscow. It featured some pretty intriguing fights, was available on YouTube and cost less than ten bucks. Of course, many of you figured you could save your money and check Cage Potato this afternoon for some highlights and a quick list of results. Don’t worry, we got your back as usual.
The welterweight tournament, which began in October of 2010, came to an end with a scrap between Golden Glory teammates Tommy Depret and Siyar Bahadurzada. To those of you who have concerns that two teammates fighting each other would lead to a boring fight, relax and take notes. Tommy Depret gave current SHOOTO light heavyweight champion Siyar Bahadurzada trouble in the opening round, but once the second round started, this fight was all Bahadurzada. Bahadurzada used his superior hands and clinchwork to get finish off Depret. Yes, we have a video of this after the jump.
Just a friendly reminder that Golden Glory is hosting the last round of its 2010/2011 United Glory tournament Saturday afternoon in Moscow, so if you’re looking for something to do to kill some time before UFC 130, you can check out the pay-per-view on YouTube for $7.95 USD.
If you’re looking for something to do Saturday afternoon while you wait for UFC 128 to start, remember that Team Golden Glory will be streaming the second round of its $150,000 United Glory welterweight MMA and heavyweight kickboxing grand prix tournament for free starting at 2:00 pm ET.
The last show was pretty damn good and the stream was even better than some paid streams I’v bought. This one should be just as good with Golden Glory standouts like Siyar Bahadurzada and Gokhan Saki serving up heaping helpings of head and leg kicks for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

Check out the full card and video highlight of the last event after the jump.
United Glory held an MMA and kickboxing hybrid tournament event in Holland over the weekend and by the video and photos we’ve seen of the show, it was very good and the production value was better than some mainstream promotions pull off.
The event was streamed free of charge via United Glory’s website and even the quality of the video feed was incredible.
The next event, which will include the second round bouts of UG’s $120,000 welterweight MMA and heavyweight kickboxing tournaments will be held January 30 in Belgium and will also be streamed live.
Here’s a video recap of the event, which was promoted and produced by the owners of Golden Glory:
