All fighters successfully made weight at today’s official GLORY 58 CHICAGO weigh-ins, making all bouts official for tomorrow night’s event at the Sears Center.
Middleweight champion Alex Pereira was slightly heavy on his first ascent to the scale, coming in at 187.2 lbs. One very short workout later he returned to the stage and hit 187 lbs dead on.
His rival Simon Marcus, the former champion, hit the scales at 184.5 lbs and then told Pereira, who took the belt from him at GLORY 46, that “I’m afraid of no man. I’m the conquering lion!”
Co-headline heavyweights Benjamin Adegbuyi and Jahfarr Wilnis hit the scales at 263lbs and 249 lbs respectively. They are running back their GLORY 24 DENVER clash, which Adegbuyi won by way of a razor-close split decision.
GLORY 58 CHICAGO takes place tomorrow, Friday September 14, at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates, Chicago, Illinois.
