Glory 19 results: Verhoeven retains, Holzken and Schilling dominate
The big Rico Verhoeven vs. Errol Zimmerman Heavyweight title fight ended not with a bang, but a whimper. In the Glory 19 main event, Verhoeven retained his belt via injury stoppage in the 2nd round when Zimmerman threw a very out of character spinning back kick, throwing out his knee in the process. An injury is always an anti-climactic ending, but this situation was complicated by some bizarre reffing. After Zimmerman went down, referee Al Wichgers counted to 10, and Zimmerman did not make the count. At that point, he brought in the doctor, who, after some time, waved the fight off. It was a bizarre, and thoroughly confusing call, but at least Rico got the proper win.
