FIGHTER THINGS TO NOTE

  • Glenn is the aggressive young fighter with very good kickboxing skills. He trains with some of the best fighters in the world at Team Alpha Male.
  • Before signing with the UFC, he was also competing for the PFL and VFC.
  • He likes putting strong pressure on his opponents. He is always moving forward.
  • Against Aguilar, Glenn was leaving himself open during the attacks. Aguilar has capitalized on this and won the fight.
  • Glenn has a tendency to move forward with the punches over the top. This leaves him open for the counter uppercut as seen against Aguilar.
  • Glenn has very good standup. Against Bermudez, he throws a lot of kicks to the body and blocked most of the Bermudez’s combinations.
  • Against Bermudez, he had a tendency to open every round with a leg kick or a body kick.
  • Against Bermudez, he has shown huge holes in his wrestling. Especially in the 2nd and 3rd. Bermudez took him down many times.
  • Glenn scrambles very well of his back. In his last fight, Bermudez scored a lot of takedowns but couldn’t control Glenn on the ground as he was always back on his feet very fast.
  • Glenn has a tendency to turn his back against his opponent in a brawl. This weakness he showed against Bermudez.
  • Glenn has a strong jab. Against Bermudez, he uses his jab to keep Bermudez at distance.
  • He is not protecting his body. Bermudez landed many hard kicks and knees to his body. There is a room for improvement on this part of his defense.
