GLORY 85 took place from the electric Rotterdam Ahoy arena on Saturday evening, April 29, and it proved to be an evening for the new school of kickboxing.

Just a year after making his GLORY debut, Tariq ‘Cookie’ Osaro (24-2-1, 12 KO) earned the GLORY 85 Heavyweight Tournament Championship, outlasting veteran fighter Jahfarr Wilnis (33-13-1, 8 KO) in the semi-final before devastating Murat Aygün (33-3, 9 KO) in the final to have his hand raised.

This victory means he will now face Antonio Plazibat for the interim-GLORY Heavyweight Championship at GLORY Collision 5 on June 17 and the first to book his spot in the historic GLORY Grand Prix set for December this year.

In the co-main event, Endy Semeleer (34-1, 17 KO) solidified his spot as the king of the GLORY Welterweight division and one of the best on the planet with an incredible shutout decision victory over the former champ Murthel Groenhart (69-26-3, 40 KO).

Elsewhere on the card, Mohamed Amine (29-4, 16 KO) made a big statement in his GLORY debut with a victory over ten-year GLORY veteran Michael Duut (44-14, 21 KO). Jan Kaffa (19-3, 7 KO) won the battle of the prospects in a wild fight against Berjan Peposhi (27-3, 16 KO) that had the whole arena on their feet from start to finish.

In the prelims, Nikola Filipovic (10-2, 6 KO) scored a late knock down in the final round to steal the victory from Fabio Kwasi (45-9, 22 KO). Plus, Brice Kombou (18-3, 3 KO) won the trilogy match with rival Maksymilian Bratkowicz (11-4, 3 KO), stopping the durable Pole in the final round in the opening bout of the night.
