Spong/Corbett 2 booked for Glory 11

Just three days before his second professional MMA fight, kickboxer Tyrone Spong has been booked to headline GLORY 11 this fall.

Spong, who is 72-6-1 as a kickboxer with 45 knockouts, will headline the card against Nathan Corbett, who is 57-3-1, promotion officials on Wednesday announced. The fight is a rematch from a 2009 bout that ended in a no-contest.

GLORY 11 will take place Oct. 12 at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill., northwest of Chicago. The card will air live on Spike TV.

Spong (1-0 MMA) on Saturday headlines World Series of Fighting 4 against Angel DeAnda (11-2) at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network (10:30 p.m. ET) following prelims that stream live on MMAjunkie.com (8 p.m. ET).

In November, Spong, who trains with the Blackzilians in South Florida, made his professional MMA debut by knocking Travis Bartlett in the first round at WSOF 1. In June, he won an eight-man, single-night GLORY tournament in New York.

Earlier this year, Spike TV announced it was adding GLORY's kickboxing events to its sports programming. The cable network in 2005 began broadcasting MMA with "The Ultimate Fighter" and live UFC events. And in January, the channel began its deal with Bellator MMA.

GLORY 11 also features the start of a heavyweight tournament and a co-main event between Joe Valtellini and Karim Ghajji.
This is a long time coming and awesome as hell. After the way their first fight ended, this had to happen.

Wouldn't be surprised if they don't try and get Spong in Bellator to for some cross over appeal.

That was a wild back and forth contest with a strange outcome.

Unfortunately Corbett is a bit older now and Spong is still 27 which is crazy cuz he fought em when he was only 23. He's got like 100 fights...ludicrous.

Spong is a lot stronger now.

Corbett's if they allow elbows, Spongs if they dont.

probably right

its funny i was doing some wikipedia hopping and ended up on spong and saw the rematch!!

so i came straight to the forum and of course you guys are on the ball

i believe this is one of the most significant rematches in any form of kickboxing

dont let carnages age fool you at all. he will be so pumped to finally get properly tested. and yes he was robbed in the first fight so there is a revenge factor. he will think this is the biggest fight of his life

poor cruiserweights, cant get no love!
