Former champion Simon Marcus says he is still the best fighter in the GLORY middleweight division.
BROOMFIELD, Colo.–Simon Marcus broke Dustin Jacoby’s left arm at GLORY 34 on Friday (October 21, 2016), rendering him unable to continue after the first round, which resulted in him winning the bout via technical knockout (TKO) inside 1STBANK Center.

“When I hit him with that kick I saw him drop his arm and shake it out, so I kept a mental note it was hurt,” Marcus said. “I didn’t get a chance to go back to it yet, but it was definitely there mentally and I knew I would go back there.”
The former champion was very happy to talk with MMAmania.com about his win over Jacoby, and happy to bounce back into the win column after losing the title to Jason Wilnis by TKO at GLORY 33 last month.
