  1. lets be honest, glory is absolutely terrible, roosmalen landed but what kind of punches were those? barely connecting with no force, promotion and other stuff in this organisation made kickboxing unpopular af

  2. What is going on with Glory and their useless judges . Another bluntly rob occurred in this tournament. First Vargas and now the Thai fighter were stripped of a win that really deserved. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Robin and wishing him to win the fight but he didn’t at all to deserve the victory. SHAME to Glory again.

    1. I’m also a Roosmalen’s fan but he lost this bout! It would have been nice to see Sitthichai vs Petrosyan for the title!! I hope Sittichai will not leave the Glory tournament

      1. Daniel, I still believe that Petrosyan is too much of opponent for this young Thai, in a couple of years may be.

    2. You guys have to remember that this was not a muay thai fight. Those blocked kicks from Sitthichai count for nothing under Glory kickboxing rules. I thought it was a close fight.

      1. Mark, you should watch the fight again since many of the kicks connected by the Thai reached the target. On the other hand, Robin was not able to connect almost any of his powerful hands on the Thai since he was very elusive.
        However, in spite of being one of the good fan of Robin I really dislike very much when judgments and results are so partial like in this case. I’m fully convinced that this was not a Robin’s fight.
        The judges in this tournament seems to be really useless or partially blind because they saw Vargas loosing also the fight which was a disgusting robbery.

        1. This is scored by round. If you watch round 4 and 5, then you see that Sitthichai walks backwards all the time, lands close to 0 punches, lands a few low kicks(but most are checked), and lands close to 0 kicks to the body(all blocked by the arms). No way that Sitthichai won those rounds(or do you disagree? ). Yeah, Roosmalen did not land much as well, but there is no doubt he landed more in those rounds. First thee round you could give to Sitthichai, but round 3 was very close also. I just think that as Sitthichai is the challenger for the title, he should take it decisively, and he did not do that(he thought that he won the first 3, and then walked backwards for 2 rounds).

          1. Mark I watched the fight again and honestly I couldn’t see any round that was clearly won by Robin. As expected, Kicks and knees landed favored the Thai and punches to Robin but only with 25 % accuracy that is quite low for Robin and as you are aware of he practically always win because his punching power that I would say it was useless here because he couldn’t connect.
            The other thing, Robin was always the aggressor but, as it is natural, the Thai moved backwards to defend himself as required but always responding quite well to Robin’s attack. The response was always better than the attack itself. Without doubt and because such response, the best two rounds for the Thai were 4 and 5 where Robin intensified his attacks.
            And last, the fight was schedule for 5 rounds, and you are telling me that I can believe or assign the first 3 rounds to the Thai however round 3 was very close. Therefore, my question is: Which is the point of discussion here since the Thai was able to won 3 rounds? So he got the fight because were not knock downs accounted for in the last 2 rounds.

            i consider Robin a very good fighter but this fight wasn’t his.

          2. Not saying Robin won the fight. I’m just saying that my opinion is that Sitthichai didn’t win as impressively as everybody says here. I thought is was close.

            Also, we differ on opinion on round 4 and 5. Sitthichai lost those rounds, he hit nothing in those rounds(everything was checked/blocked). I think he won the first 2 though, and round 3 was very close(slight edge to Sitthichai).

          3. Mark. I’m happy that we agree that the Thai won the fight, good.
            However, I still don’t agree on rounds 4 and 5 because in my opinion were also for the Thai. The score card of the judges should be turned around to make justice in this fight. Let’s as see the opinion of our other friends about round 4 and 5 for our peace of minds.

  3. Glory favoring their poster boy, yet again. I shouldn’t even be surprised at this point. What a shame.
