GLORY 25 MILAN kicks off today at 4 p.m. EST on ESPN3. Here are our picks:
Robin van Roosmalen (34-6, 10-2 GLORY) vs. Sittichai Sitsongpeenong (103-28-5, 2-0 GLORY)
The headliner for GLORY 25 MILAN is well-deserving of the top spot on a stacked card. Van Roosmalen has been doing his thing at the top of the division for a good while, but he faces a difficult task against Sittichai. Should the man from Thailand get a chance to finish this fight, he will. And we think it will be Sittichai who ends the night holding the GLORY strap, ushering in a new era in the division.
Pick: Sitsongpeenong by TKO
Giorgio Petrosyan vs. (81-2-1, 5-1 GLORY) vs. Josh Jauncey (23-5, 4-1 GLORY)
It’s the old guard vs. the upstart young stud in a narrative laden match. Petrosyan, who is making his return to GLORY and will be fighting in front of a hometown crowd, may be just too much for the young Canadian this time around, but Jauncey won’t go down easy. This is also the type of fight for Jauncey where a loss won’t ruin him, in fact should he show well at all his stock will continue to rise. We still like "The Doctor" to hold on against the young Canadian.
Pick: Petrosyan by unanimous decision
Other picks: Varga over Adamchuk; Groenhart over Gallo; Kongolo over Ghajji; Kongolo over Groenhart.
