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.

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.
