GLORY 20 POST-FIGHT QUOTES

GLORY Lightweight World Champion Robin van Roosmalen

“I kept the title and I got my revenge. What more can you ask for?”

“Like I said before, I am a true championship fighter. I can fight five rounds at a high pace. [Andy] Ristie is a three-round fighter; that’s what the difference is. He is a tough opponent and he hit some good shots but he never put me in trouble.”

“In the first fight, I let him do his thing too much, I gave him too much space to work. Tonight I played my game and you saw the difference.”

“[Andy] Ristie and [Giorgio] Petrosyan are the only two guys I lost to in GLORY. Tonight I got my revenge on Ristie, so yeah, let’s have Petrosyan next. I want to settle the score there as well.”

GLORY Featherweight World Champion Gabriel Varga

“It means a lot to me to beat a guy with a name like Mosab Amrani. You are talking about a guy who has been at the top level for years. I used to watch him back in the day before I was anyone. To fight and beat him is a big thing for me.”

“I am tall in this weight class and usually I could keep a guy out at range and fight from distance, and that is what my coaches want me to fight like. But I don’t know, I just like getting into wars and if someone steps in and wants to do that then I will usually oblige him and have a short-range battle.”

Middleweight Contender Tournament Winner Simon Marcus

“I am here to be champion, nothing else, so Artem Levin better know that I am coming for him. I already beat him under muay thai rules and maybe he thinks he will have the advantage under kickboxing rules, but I will show him different.”

“For this tournament I went to work with Buakaw [Banchamek] in Thailand. He is a good friend of mine and we have trained together before, but this time we really looked at some stuff for fighting when you are moving from muay thai rules to kickboxing. Nobody did that better than Buakaw.”

“Joe Schilling is another fight I want. He beat me in the tournament last year but that was literally my first kickboxing fight. Let’s see what happens next time. He will get it.”
