GLORY World Series heads to London, England later today for GLORY 5. Headlining the card will be a fantastic matchup of elite heavyweights as Tyrone Spong (68-6-1, 42 KO’s) takes on Remy Bonjasky (77-15, 40 KO’s).
MMAFrenzy caught up with Spong earlier this month for a quick Q and A covering a variety of topics including his GLORY 5 opponent, his growing MMA career, the passing of kickboxing legend Ramon Dekkers, and more.
MMAFrenzy: What are your thoughts on opponent Remy Bonjasky?
“Bonjasky is very well known, he’s a big champion. He’s a hard opponent.”
This will be your first fight with GLORY, is this a one-time fight or multi-fight deal?
“I got a contract with them for four fights.”
You made your MMA debut with the World Series of Fighting this past November at WSOF 1, how does the GLORY deal impact your return to the cage?
“I’m going to do both, [and] I am going to both at the same damn time.”
So when will you be returning to MMA?
“It will be later this year, I’m going to be fighting with WSOF. Also looking forward to it. You know, I just like fighting and the full-contact [that comes with it].”
