The match of heavyweight Adegbuyi was part of the support act.

The experienced Romanian knocked out Hari with a broken nose in December last year.

Verhoeven's training partner went down hard against Plazibat.

At the end of the first round, the Croat knocked him to the ground with a series of striking blows for eight seconds.

Adegbuyi then walked through the ring stunned and was knocked out early in the second round.

Plazibat, who trains with Mike Passenier in Amsterdam, recorded his second GLORY victory in a month and a half.

He is ranked sixth among GLORY's heavyweights and will rise sharply in the rankings.
