In just four years since joining the organization, 27-year-old Verhoeven has risen from promising contender to undisputed champion, including a 10-fight winning streak inside the GLORY ring and four title defenses. Hari, one of the most consistent fight-finishers of all time and kickboxing’s bad boy, is on a five-fight winning streak of his own (four by way of KO or TKO).

GLORY: COLLISION is scheduled to be a stand-alone four-fight card, preceded by separate five-fight cards for both GLORY 36 and GLORY 36 SuperFight Series featuring world title bouts in multiple weight-classes and a one-night, four-man contender tournament.
