van Roosmalen Out Of GLORY55
Robin van Roosmalen has been pulled from GLORY 55 New York, due to a shoulder injury.
“I tried to work through it, but it became too difficult,” said Van Roosmalen.
“I’m disappointed to have to pull out of the fight. I’m sorry to let my fans down, but I think they know that I would only pull out for something serious. Health is the most important thing, so I need to get back to 100% and then I will be back to remind people who the featherweight boss is.”
With their being a gap at featherweight, GLORY has announced that an interim featherweight championship fight will go down at GLORY 55 on July, 20th at The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
