STAR-STUDDED, ONE-NIGHT TOURNAMENT
ROME, Italy (Oct. 29, 2012) – – A living kickboxing legend will provide a deep
reservoir of experience for the three-man commentary team that will be calling
the action for fight fans around the world at the GLORY 3 Rome ‘Final 8’ event
at the historic PalaLottomatica arena in Rome, Italy on Saturday Nov. 3, live on
Ramon Dekkers blazed a trail for Europeans in the Muay Thai world at a time when
it was thought none but native Thais could be successful in the sport and, to
this day, if he enters an arena in Thailand, he will receive a standing ovation.
Dekkers will provide colour commentary for the live stream and telecast of the
event, which will see one 70 kilogram (154 pound) tournament competitor walk
away with a tournament grand prize of $300,000.
He will be supported by retired MMA legend and first-ever UFC Middleweight
Champion Frank Shamrock, who made his debut as a GLORY commentator last month at
the GLORY 2 Brussels event, as well as former PRIDE Fighting Championships and
Showtime colour commentator Stephen Quadros.
“These guys are the absolute pinnacle of the stand-up fighting world,” said
Dekkers. “GLORY kickboxers in all weight classes are the best of the best and
the 70 kilogram division is a prime example of the elite level of skill in the
league. These guys are so fast and so technical, but they’ve got power as well
and aggression in spades. It should be an incredible night of fast-paced,
hard-hitting action in the ring.”
The ‘Final 8’ one-night, single-elimination tournament will bring the inaugural
GLORY 70 kilogram Grand Prix to conclusion. The eight fighters were matched by
way of a random draw undertaken in Monte Carlo, Monaco last week.

Netherlands is matched with Swiss dynamo Shemsi Beqiri (71-7, 31 KO’s).
In the second tournament bracket, Robin van Roosmalen (35-13-3, 10 KO’s) of

all-time great Albert “The Hurricane” Kraus (66-16-3, 39 KO’s) of Netherlands
meets 21-year-old fast-rising star Sanny Dahlbeck (24-4, 14 KO’s) of Sweden.
The victors of the two brackets will face each other in the semifinal tournament
In the first of two tournament reserve bouts, Fight of the Year candidate
Dzhabar Askerov (73-28-1, 37 KO’s) of Russia will take on standout Yoshihiro

Both reserve matches will be fought before the Final 8 quarterfinal round
tournament matches. Should any victorious fighters be too injured to advance to
the next round of the tournament, their spots will be offered to the fighter
they had defeated in the previous tournament round. If that fighter cannot
continue either, a tournament reserve bout winner will be substituted into the
