Holzken, 31, has won eight straight and has never lost a GLORY fight. He dropped the welterweight belt last year due to injury and won it again by beating Raymond Daniels in August with former champion Joseph Valtellini on the shelf.
Nieky Holzken retains title Dec 6, 2015
Nieky Holzken's return to his home country didn't go as expected. He still left the sold-out arena as GLORY champion. The Netherlands native retained his welterweight title against countrymen Murthel Groenhart via split decision (48-47, 46-49, 49-46) in the main event of GLORY 26 on Friday in Amsterdam.
