Swedish standout Sofia ‘The Wolf’ Olofsson has been added to the GLORY 65 UTRECHT card taking place in Utrecht, Netherlands next month, according to Glorykickboxing.com.
She will face British counterpart Christi Brereton (20-6-1, 5 KO’s) in the opening bout of the Superfight Series card, which streams live worldwide on UFC Fight Pass.
Olofsson (48-8, 21 KO’s) debuted at GLORY 55 NEW YORK against Tiffany van Soest and narrowly lost a split-decision to the former champion.
At GLORY 60 LYON she took on France’s Cindy Silvestre and won a unanimous decision. She now heads into this GLORY 65 encounter off the back of that win and edges into the contender conversation if she secures victory in Utrecht.
Brereton, a 2014 IFMA silver medallist and recent WBC Muay Thai champion, debuted at GLORY 54 BIRMINGHAM last year with a unanimous decision win.
She now goes into her second GLORY fight with the prospect of making a huge impact on the contender picture by potentially beating the #3 fighter in the division.
GLORY 65 UTRECHT takes place Friday, May 17 at the Central Studios in Utrecht, Netherlands and features two world title fights: Alex Pereira defends the middleweight title against Jason Wilnis and Sitthichai defends the lightweight title against Marat Grigorian.
