In the latest in gambling news, we’ll talk about a crowd favorite: fighting. Simon Marcus has conquered every combat sport he’s pursued, so will MMA follow? The former GLORY Kickboxing champion believes that he can win in MMA. After six months of training and a slew of COVID-19-induced delays, the popular muay thai fighter and kickboxer Marcus will make his professional MMA debut Friday. His first MMA match will be at Unified MMA 42 in Enoch, Alberta, Canada on UFC Fight Pass. Of course, for those who offer UFC fighting in their bookie pay per head sportsbook, make sure to let your MMA and boxing fans know about this upcoming event.
Actually, Marcus hasn’t competed since late 2018, but not of his own volition. When things hit a stalling point with GLORY, Marcus briefly delved into preparation for professional boxing. Eventually, he landed in an MMA training camp.“I felt like things weren’t really getting bigger with GLORY,” Marcus recently says to the media. “It was kind of the same thing over and over again. I wanted to make a change and I thought MMA would be better for my brand. That took some time, you know, shopping around and seeing what’s out there and what’s going on.”
