GLORY 72: Petch and VanNostrand battle to a draw

Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao and Kevin VanNostrand battled to a majority draw in their GLORY featherweight championship main event at GLORY 72 in Chicago, Illinois.

This was a rematch of their fight from GLORY 55 last year, which saw Kiatmookao best VanNostrand to win the interim featherweight title.

Kiatmookao got off to a hot start in this bout with VanNostrand as well, rocking him early on in the first round. VanNostrand, however, attempted to answer back by changing things up.

Kiatmookao attempted to score well inside and in the clinch, while also using his kicks outside of it. It was the clinch, however, that played a role in the fight’s result, as excessive holding led to the referee deducting a point from Kiatmookao in the closing seconds of the fight.

While the champ scored a 48-46 decision on one card, the other two judges scored the fight 47-47, ruling a majority draw.
