Doumbe, Kongolo Brawl at Weigh-Ins
There has been no love lost between Cedric Doumbe and Yoann Kongolo ahead of their welterweight title clash at GLORY 39: Brussels. Today at the weigh-ins, the tension finally reached its boiling point, and the two fighters got physical shortly after stepping onto the scales.
Doumbe won the welterweight title in a shocking upset over Nieky Holzken in December. He will not have an easy win as his first title defense, as he faces a man who has already bested him twice in the ring in Kongolo.
The champion has expressed his utmost confidence heading into the bout, labeling Kongolo an easy fight and promising to defend the belt in style. Kongolo evidently has taken offense to Doumbe’s antics, and the two couldn’t keep their hatred for one another controlled during Friday’s weigh-ins:
