Van Roosmalen: "Rumor of GLORY/Bellator crossover"
Hard-hitting GLORY lightweight contender Robin van Roosmalen has been told he is likely the next in line for a title shot at 155lbs. He holds two wins over current champion Davit Kiria but doesn’t see that as any guarantee of another victory. In addition to the title shot news, Van Roosmalen is also excited about a rumor that GLORY and Bellator might do some crossover matches now that Scott Coker has taken over at Bellator.
