HIS COACH.

KNOXING HAS ANTHONY JOHNSON

WOLF, WHO WORKS WITH THE LIKES

OF JANE KIRKLAND, COACHED BY ONE

OF THE BEST WOMEN'S KICKBOXERS,

DANIELLE SUMMERS, AND WE ARE SET

FOR WHAT IS SCHEDULED TO BE

THREE ROUNDS.

VAN ROOSMALEN IN THE WHITE

GLOVES.

GRIGORIAN IN THE BLACK, AND

GRIGORIAN ATTACKING THE BODY

WITH THE LEFT KICK.

VETERAN VETERAN, TESTING THE

WATERS WITH A HIGH KICK.

WE ARE IN ISTANBUL, TURKEY, WE

HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING GLORY 15.

>> GREAT SHOT BY GRIGORIAN.

A VERY BUSY, MIXING OF HIS

ATTACK.

VAN ROOSMALEN, DELIVERS AN

INSIDE LOW KICK.

PLENTY OF ACTION ON BEGIN THE

PROCEEDINGS HERE IN HAD LIGHT

WEIGHT MATCHUP.

RIGHT UPPER CUT.

LEFT HOOK.

OUT.

BY VAN ROOSMALEN AND THEN, MARAT

GRIGORIAN, THEY'RE GOING TIT FOR

TAT HERE.

GREG REGRETNESS CAME OVER TO

GLORY WHEN WE ACQUIRED SHOWTIME.

HE FOUGHT FOR THE TITLE AT THE

YOUNG AGE OF 19 OVER THERE.

SO HE'S GOT QUITE A RESUME.

UP THE MIDDLE BY MARAT

GRIGORIAN.

THE PUSH FIX.

COMING UP ON THE FINAL 60

SECONDS OF THE FIRST FRAME.

LEFT TO THE BODY, FOLLOWED BY AN

OUTSIDE LOW KICK.

25 SECONDS REMAINING IN THE

ROUND.

VAN ROOSMALEN ACCIDENTS TRYING

TO SNEAK IN A LEFT KICK TO THE

BODY.

UNDER 30 SECONDS LEFT.

VAN ROOSMALEN IS DOING ONE

THING, JUDGE OF THE MAKING IT

EASIER FOR GRIGORIAN TO CATCH T.

WHEN HE STARTED DOING THE COMBO,

HE NEEDS TO STEP TO HIS RIGHT.

WHEN HE STEPS TO HIS LEFT, HE

MOVES INTO GRIGORIAN'S LEFT HAND

IT OVERRED RIGHT THERE.

I GIVE THAT ROUND TO GRIGORIAN.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IMHAD, HE

USED SPEED, BROKEN RHYTHM, AND

AN EXPLOSIVE STRIKE.

HE WAS REALLY MIXING THE RHYTHM

AND PACE OF HIS STRIKE, THAT

ROLLED AND THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE

GOT TO DO.

YOU'VE GOT TO CHANGE THE PACE,

AND HAVE THE POWER STRIKE.

GRIGORIAN W THAT GOOD BOXING,

HAS THE REACH ADVANTAGE.

SO YOU KNOW HE'S GOING TO TRY TO

KEEP DUTCH FIGHTER ON THE

OUTSIDE.

VAN ROOSMALEN WANTS TO GET

INSIDE AND LAND THOSE

DEVASTATING HOOKS OF HIS.

THAT'S PROBABLY WHAT HE'LL DO.

HE'S KNOWN FOR THOSE POWER

PUMPS.

WE SAY HELLO TO ONE OF THE GLORY

GIRLS.

>> OF COURSE, YOU CAN FOLLOW HER

ON TWITTER.

YOU CAN FOLLOW ALL OF THESE

GLORY GIRLS.

>> PUNCHING POWER IS SOMETIMES

GENETIC.

THE BELL AND ROUND TWO.

QUICK JOB BY VAN ROOSMALEN,

THROUGH THE GUARD.

OFF A BODY KICK.

INSIDE LOW KICK, FOLLOWED BY AN

OUTSIDE LOW KICK, SO ANOTHER

FAST START BY THESE TWO.

LIGHTNING QUICK LIGHT WEIGHTS.

GRIGORIAN, PUTTING ON A DISPLAY

HERE.

BEAUTIFUL COMBINATION BY THE

ARMENIAN FIGHTER.

>> YEAH, I REALLY LIKE T. VERY

STYLISTIC.

AGAIN, CLEAN, HITTING HEARD.

EVASIVE WHEN HE NEEDS TO.

BUT HE'S NOT RUNNING, EITHER.

HE'S JUST MOVING OUT OF RANGE TO

HIT BACK LIKE THAT.

THERE IT IS.

GREAT WORK.

JUST GETS OUTSIDE THE RANGE SO

HE CAN HAVE ROOM FOR HIMSELF.

>> CROWD HERE, SHOWING

THEMSELVES, AND RESPONSE CHAT.

>> NO TURKISH FOR ME, SIR.

I'M ENJOYING MY TIME HERE.

GREAT FOOD AND GREAT PEOPLE.

AND THE HIGHER CONNECT FOR VAN

ROOSMALEN, AND HE JUSTATE THAT

BODY.

PICKING UP THE PACE, AND

GRIGORIAN STAYING IN THE POCKET.

THESE TWO CONTINUE TO UNLOAD ON

EACH OTHER.

ROOSMALEN.

ON TOP OF THE FOOD -- FOOD

CHAIN, AFTER HIS

COME-FROM-BEHIND VICTORY.

AND A RIGHT HAND BEHIND THE

GUARD BY VAN ROOSMALEN.

AND FOLLOWED BY A GUARD BY

GRIGORIAN.

LEFT TO THE BODY.

INCREDIBLE ACTION.

UNBELIEVABLE.

PUT ON BY VAN ROOSMALEN, AND

GRIGORIAN PUT ON HERE.

HE'S DONE A LITTLE BIT MORE.

POSSIBLY, AUTO STILL A CLOSE

FIGHT.

>> WHAT ADJUSTMENTS DO YOU HAVE

TO MAKE TO ENSURE THEY -- WITH

THE JUDGESES.

>> GRIGORIAN CAN'T STATE THERE.

HE'S GOT TO DO WHAT HE DID IN

THE FIRST ROUND.

HIT, MOVE AND HIT AGAIN.

THAT'S HOW ROBIN'S ANYTHING TO

CATCH UP TO HIM.

ROBIN NEEDS TO JAB A LITTLE BIT

MORE.

THEN GO TO WORK BEHIND THAT JAB

LOOKING AT THE LEG STRIKES.

THEY'RE BOTH LANDING VERY HIGH.

ACTIVITY AND THAT'S THE HARD

THING.
